House of Blue


Decorating in Blue: Grow Creative Blog

Over the past year I've been painting lots of things in my house blue cause, who doesn't love blue?!

I have one blue accent wall and now I'm adding in some blue furniture.  Check out our Ikea bench!  We purchased it unfinished and now that it's painted I want to keep it forever.

I dreamed up a fun bathroom storage idea when I was walking through Home Depot one day.  I saw some unfinished wooden crates and I could just see them as shelves in my half bath above the toilet. We currently had no storage in that bathroom. So away I went with the blue paint. I'm lucky to have a handy husband to help me mount these babies on the wall!

I found some cool wire baskets at the thrift store and added my framed floral sunburst painting.

I framed my Orange Globemallow painting and....

  2. I really like your bathroom crates too. Great idea! Our downstairs has a lot of golden yellow. It brings the sunshine in on all of our gray days up here!

  3. Would you mind sharing the paint color you used for the crate? It's a lovely soothing color. Might work for my bathroom!
