Feeling Blue?

Sorry to be so late posting, I can't quite believe(well maybe) I haven't posted for 2 weekends. My excuse... I've been really really busy working weekends and restocking the store has kept me too busy to post. I have, however, been stocking up on beautiful images for blogging and have some fantastic rooms and accessory ideas to share with you this week.

Blue continues to be a hot trend this year, especially aqua blue. All shades are in favor, sky blue, robins egg blue, turquoise blue, pale blue, navy blue and teal blue.

Why is blue so hot? Perhaps it's the calming effect it can have or the way it pairs with so many other colours. For me blue can be lively or tranquil. I love it. Anyone visiting Moving Designz Home & Cottage is sure to notice blue is definitely a favorite with us.

My inspiration room. This is Marcia Cross's dressing room. You know Marcia as Brea from Desperate Housewives... Lovely, elegant, this room is STYLIN'.

And here's another very elegant yet casual room. This time instead of being paired up with chocolate and black we see mocha. Now, this is pretty.

A gorgeous pair of pretty blue sitting chairs and that artwork on the mantle is fantastic.

I really love this chair. It's a little hard to tell if it is actually blue from my computer. I'm going to pretend it is even if it's not because it is such a stunning room.

Hmmm a pale blue armoire, never thought of that but you have to admit this is a nice room. Very Scandinavian. Oh yes, loving the crystals dripping from the chandelier... and the pops of hot pink.

I like this approach, graphic blue pillows and blue striped wallpaper hung across the wall. This could be a perfectly chic waiting room.

This picture is from the store showing the pretty blue accessories, blue throws, lovely blue vases and feather filled blue and bronze patterned pillows. In the foreground is a stunning white branch bowl.

This bedroom definitely has wow factor with it's blue accents.

Another great looking bedroom. Blues, beige and cream. Classic.

How pretty is this little bedside vignette?

Now this is pretty funky but goes to show you how nicely blue plays with orange.

Blue also mixes perfectly with fresh citrus green as seen in this geometric fabric.

And this plate of limes...

Lets see what table top decor we have in store for you. This blue tumbler set with matching pitcher are part of our spring line up. So fresh so pretty especially nice is the leafy table cloth. Perfect for summer entertaining.

Another fresh find from Moving Designz is this aqua blue tray.

More tabletop accessories are these beautiful double walled bowls and salad tongs done in both aqua and fresh citrus green.

Ocean blue and more fresh citrus green in our button pillow collection. The denim blue beach bags are a great accent for any summer home.

How about his fabulous restaurant in Montreal "La luna". Benches full of blue pillows, in the foreground navy and in the background aqua blue. Love it.

Now this is a stunning table setting. Pink and Blue. I do. I do.
And that tablescape reminds me of these pretty little blue boxes from Tiffany's. Who wouldn't want a nice little gift wrapped up in this well known box?
A look at very pretty blue glass accessories.

Speaking of blue glass check out this backsplash.

I use this idea alot... Mixing bands of one inch mosiac glass tiles with white subway tiles. Adds a fresh hit of colour and is easy on the budget.

Pretty square aqua vases from Moving Designz filled with spring flowers.

Hope you're inspired and feeling blue in a good way.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week!

Susan - I love all of your designs they are so inspirational.

I would appreciate your advice, I am planning on painting my bedroom blue and cream, will this go with the Beech coloured furniture which is already installed?
