Crushing On Color: Brittany from Gallery No 8






The second post in the Crushing on Color series
is brought to you by 
Brittany of Gallery No. Eight.












Morning everyone! 
 and I'm so excited to be sharing my favourite colour with you today! 


Anne-Marie is one of the loveliest people I have met since I started blogging
 and I was thrilled when she asked me to guest post on her blog! 
Her posts are always so bright and colourful and lovely :)

I probably never would have picked navy blue as my favourite colour
 a few months ago, but since I've started blogging,
 I've noticed that it just keeps popping up in my posts! 

When I find a room or home that I just absolutely adore, 
it almost always has some blue in it.

My favourite 'blue home' is
Fiona Douglas' of Bluebellgray. 









I love the colours she used on her walls 
(Farrow & Ball  "Pitch Blue" & "Dix Blue"),
 and all the beautiful accents that have some blue in them :)

Some of my other favourite blue rooms include these two:







I love the look of crisp white trim and furniture against the deep blue walls!

I also love little navy accents in a space:

I've picked some of my favourite navy pieces from Etsy, 
just in case you want to add a little blue to your home too :)

Hope you enjoyed my little tour of blue :) 


Can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with!!

Thanks so much for having me Anne-Marie!
Hope you all have a lovely day :)

Brittany, great post - thank you!
Your viewpoint is always entertaining and genuine,
which makes for such a good read.


Navy is one of my all-time favourites, as well -
I like it dark and sultry, bordering on black.
 And the art from JKL Design on Etsy?
She is fabulous!
Have to get one of her pieces into my space.


Stop by on Saturday for the next guest blogger
Crushing on Color post...
it's a rainbow of inspiration!

Love these blue rooms! I wish I could be more adventurous with color, but instead I just like looking at pictures of it

I never really thought I'd love navy blue, but I'm getting more and more convinced! That JKL Design print is fabulous.

Gorgeous!! I wish I had a room that I could paint a dark inky blue- so dramatic. Beautiful post Brittany!

I agree with Britteny about discovering navy since I started blogging. I also never had it on my radar but have started to fall in love. Great images.

Beautiful. Blue is my favorite as well and it's fun to see that we had totally different images! I love navy but any shade will do. :-)

I think that staircase, with all the owners favourite blues spelled out, is fabulous! Navy blue is one of the main colors in my own home currently, but blue has always been present in one form or another. It offers a respite, a bit of quiet. I love the images Brittany gathered here for her inspirations - so much saturation!

Ohh man I love those blues! Wish I had the guts.
