You saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own...
Well, no need to despair, these blue rooms will fill your heart with all kinds of love and inspire some wonderful dreams. I have always been the girl who loved all things blue - whenever I had to choose between something pink or blue, I always preferred the latter. Why should home decor be any different? These rooms run the gamut of blues and demonstrate the many tints and tones of blue as well as the limitless colors you can use for your accents. Contrary to what you may believe, the right color blue can be a neutral and soothing backdrop for your art, and looks surprisingly good against the warm tone of wood floors.
I actually love the look so much that I have decided to use blue in three different rooms in my new home. The foyer is a deep navy, the master bedroom is another deep, dark blue, and the office is a soft, light, winter blue. (pictures will follow as soon as everything is actually designed and the rooms are no longer empty)
In the mean time, just enjoy and consider these the good kind of blues. :-)

The living room: all neutral with pops of blues and pinks. Note how Kasler brings pink in with the trim on the chair skirts and the velvet on a french chair. The blues come from the lampshades, the trumeau mirror, and the porcelain dishes.
A closer view. Kasler layered an antique rug over sisal: highs and lows, a Kasler trademark.
Classic Kasler: hand painted de Gournay wallpaper is matched with slip covers on the English antique chairs. The slips keep the formal furniture from seeming stuffy. As a result, this room appears fresh and young enough for a lively family with children.
