Shelley Wilkins: Tried & True – Good Ole Blue

I am not alone in my love of blue.  Everyone loves blue.  It is a safe and timeless color that is always on trend and easy to incorporate into almost any design.  Here are a few images I pulled together in which the color blue was used beautifully:

From the runway to your home…

From jewelry to wallcoverings…blue is here to stay!

These room settings are different styles but blue is the constant.

This is a great traditional room with antiques, blue fabrics and a blue cocktail table.

Nautical blue and white

Transitional with clean lines

Artsy and Eclectic

Red, white and blue – an all American classic with a modern twist

A neutral room with blue accents

You can use blue in paints, lamps, china, porcelain and even tile.  Blue does not always have to be used in fabrics.

Blue and white stripes painted on walls

Blue lacquer – Amazing!

 All greens with blue and white porcelain – Fabulous!

Love the blue porcelain with pops of pink

Blue tiles

Timeless blue Mottahedeh china

 I love the stripes on these great new lamps from Ralph Lauren.

This is one of my favorite pieces on the J Banks Retail floor in of course, blue and white!

This was a project that I worked on where the client had an existing assortment of different blue and white porcelain that we grouped as a collection above seating in the breakfast room.

This piece of furniture was originally painted black and I transformed it with blue and white lacquer paint so that it became the perfect place to display her collection as well.

As you can see, blue is easy and versatile.  Truly tried and true – good ole blue!
