Crushing on Color: Abby from A Delightful Design




Todays fabulous Crushing on Color post is from




Hi friends!  It's Abby from A Delightful Design.  
I'm a huge fan of Anne-Marie and so excited to be here!

Beyond any other color, I am the most drawn to blue.

It could be because I grew up with Lake Huron as my back yard.
  
I truly believe that what you're surrounded with
 as a child has an effect you--
even color.






Blue looks amazing with every color.  It can calm and it can energize.

I have yet to meet a blue wallpaper I didn't love.

More blue prettiness.  
Although I can't decide if it's the blue and pink combination
or the light fixture I'm drawn to.  
Both!

Four years ago I painted our living room Boca Raton Blue by Benjamine Moore.

 It was a crazy time in our life.

 Afterwards, someone mentioned that blue is the color of the throat chakra
 I know nothing about chakras but found it interesting that this color
all relates to how we express ourselves with our voice.





Even years later this is my favorite room.

Doesn't it look fabulous with orange?!

My next step? 
 Going glossy with blue.  
We are moving in the next couple months and I'm dying to try this.






I hope you enjoyed these little pieces of me and my passion for blue!

Your home really reflects your attitudes,

polished but not overdone.

in your soon-to-be-found-perfect-home :)

K. Keller said...

I love blue as well! I have a theory that people are either red people or blue people and that they tend to gravitate towards one pallet or the other. I am definitely a blue girl.

A Delightful Design said...

K. Keller, I have never heard that theory before! That's so interesting!

Fun post! I am loving blue as well. For years I was more of a warm color person, but now I love the calm of cools. I can't wait to see the gloss you add in your new home!

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

Fun post! I am loving blue too. For years I was always more a warm person,but recently I have been drawn more towards cools, especially blues. I can't wait to see the blue gloss at your new house! I am sure it will be fantastic.

I love Abby's blog. She picked some beautiful, energetic rooms...I have that dining room in my files too. I wondered if I would get tired of living with those colors but apparently not as I love it every time I see it

Love all the blue...so serene!! :)

Anne-Marie @ 10 Rooms said...

So glad you all dropped by and read Abby's post - she never disappoints! I completely agree with K Keller - I usually find if you are passionate about blue then you are not particularly fond of red, and vice versa.
