@MrsGatito:  I think it’s nice to have some sort of color flow in a home. I don’t think it will be too much.

I would howver get neutral curtains and use blue for the accent items. If you change your mind on color scheme, neutral drapes will go with everything.

It’s not too much, espeically when you have different shades of the color and are using it in different ways.

@MrsGatito:  no way! If someone had magnolia throughout it wouldnt matter. and it’s not like you’re having blue walls, chairs, bookshelves, pictures, and rug all in one room. I think you have enough room to do what you please

I don’t think it’s too much, in fact having a similar or coordinating color in your downstairs bath is what I would suggest if you are also doing blue’s in the main living space. Most of our downstairs is earth tones. With the exception of the laundry room beacuse it’s an entity on it’s own, which is teal. Upstairs is a mish mash of colors. We went much  more contemporary in our bedroom with gray/blue walls, black furniture, white  and silver accents etc…

I’ve never been in a house and gone “Man, there is too much blue in this house!”

I think you’ll be fine!

@MrsGatito:  Doesnt sound like too much! Plus this way you can redecorate and switch pieces around when you get bored.

I tend to wear a lot of black and white and neutrals but noticed lately I’ve been into blue in my wardrobe. It’s reflecte din our decorating style… We just moved into our new place 3 months ago and:

– our office is blue, white, and gray.

– our bedroom is gray, white, and sea-green/turquoise

– our main bathroom is yellow, white, and blue

(hmmm there’s a ot of gray too I guess…)


anyway, I’m happy with it 🙂

I think it sounds lovely! Besides, what if you have some cushions in a different colour (like bright red) to offset the blue? Those are MUCH easier to change than the wall colour and blue goes with pretty much anything.

If you want to paint some walls blue, I currently sleep in a coral bedroom and it hurts my eyes every morning (the joys of renting…). I long for the day I wake up with a view of powder blue walls!
