With the passing of blues legend B. B. King, I’m in a space of reflection about his legacy and about the blues–even the design blues. Some of the most relaxing and sumptuous homes I have worked on tend to be built around shades of blue.
Always on trend and constantly being updated, I “fall back” to my go-to color when in doubt if an inspiration. With all the shades of teal blue and turquoise being predominant in outdoor textiles, I sometimes find it difficult to choose just one palette from which to work.
Mixing shades within a chosen hue makes the feel of your space much more interesting. Layering texture, pattern and color tones of different textiles adds to the luxurious feel of “fullness” in your designs. Let the “blues” within your spirit guide you to the ultimate comfort of your chosen design!
