Sometimes I wonder …
I wonder if I would pick blue for our master bedroom if I was picking colors today. Or last month. Or last year, for that matter.
You see, the color choices for the master bedroom were made close to five years ago. With the deal of the century $1-a-yard blue fabric I found at Vogue Fabrics. A bolt that was hiding in my closet just waiting …
and waiting …
and waiting …
for me to turn it into fabulous drapes.
Oh, I’ve taunted that bolt over the years. Pulling it out and getting it all excited, only to snip off a swatch to take to the fabric store. Or paint store.
Or to look at it, once again, as I pondered if blue was the way I want to go …
And just when I was ready to change my mind … to abandon that $1-a-yard blue fabric for another color choice ... I would visit my master bedroom Pinterest inspiration board. And go aaahhhh …
a sense of calm would settle over me …
… as I looked through all the inspirational blue bedrooms I’ve pinned over the years. I mean, how could I go wrong with these beautiful blue bedrooms guiding my way.
And then I would remember why I chose blue in the first place!
Love blue and those pretty bedrooms!
All I need to convince me is that first bedroom! It’s wonderful. And the headboard….
So much pretty to look at, love them all but first and last are my favorites. We’re going to paint our room a light aqua with apple green and coral accents. Finally got our l/r painted a light gray with aqua accents. Think kitchen going to get shade darker gray as it’s right next to l/r..It’s only taken me almost 8 yrs. to figure out what colors I really wanted. Our bathroom is a bluish green so will look nice next to bedroom also. both bathrooms got painted maybe 2-3 yrs. after we bought place.
Why didn’t you show us the fabric so we’d know what colors you were leaning towards? Or did I miss one of bedrooms featured as yours? If one of bedrooms was yours it’s gorgeous.
I’d changed my mind several times about colors. Got free taupe paint at Ace when they were giving away the quarts last year, had enuf to do living room. Will see what I can add to it to make a color we can use. I’ve done that many times. Last Saturday True Value had free quarts so hubs got same color as our l/r. We used less than a gallon on our l/r. One common wall goes thru l/r, kitchen, mudroom so have to keep it same color. We have a single wide mfg. home 16×80. I’m thinking of painting half wall between kitchen/l/r a darker gray or darker aqua. Think it needs a little feature wall and that one would be quick to paint. When we bought place there was a bar between kitchen/l/r with bar sticking out in l/r, big ugh, hubs took it off and put nice top on it. We don’t have a dining area but it’s just two of us. Sorry for elaborating too much. You bloggers inspire me so much can’t turn this old head off, constantly going with things want to do.
Love love love the blue Linda !!! Great inspiration girl !!!
Blue is very calming! I’ve never been a lover of blue till the past year or two! I attended a school that required us to wear blue and white. light blue, dark blue, white, or blue and white checks. I hated it. So it took me a long time to get over that and embrace blue! Now however I am adding some blue to my home – inspired by other homes I see out there! I’m considering painting the ceiling of my porch a pale blue!
This is the first time in many many years that I haven’t had a blue room – now I’m wondering if I should go back to it – just beautiful !!!

I love blue bedrooms…well, blue any rooms I suppose. But there is just something so calming about a blue bedroom. Such beautiful inspiration Linda!

I read in a Feng Shui book that you should paint your bedroom blue or green…for all the right reasons I suppose. Remembering my daughter wanted a blue bedroom…. we did so and I always hated it. Now some 40 years later I’m finding myself leaning to the blue. Soooo funny I have a “Bedroom Redo” board on Pinterest too and it’s all about the BLUE! In fact I think I pinned some of the same bedrooms you did. I’m having the same problem of just embarking on the project. I need to just DO IT! (but I might not like it lol)

I love my blue and white bedroom. It soothes my soul and relaxes my weary mind. I switch to blue and brown for fall/winter.
