Steal the blue

I have already shared some of the gorgeous images from Country Living, but I have to post some recent inspiration along the blue lines.

From Brown Button… stunning hydrangeas, one of my favourite flowers. I could put a few uses to that cute shed too!

The Lettered Cottage… coffee table repurposed from an old school desk. Love it Layla!

From a lovely post by Catherine at Simply Natural (via Absolutely Beautiful Things).

Via Sarah’s Fab Day (source unknown), reminds me of Layla’s redo (above), with a great rustic mirror above the table.

And from the Country Living coffee-table book:

A perfect tone of dirty pale blue. Would look great with a brighter splash of red in it to set off the colour.

I had recently been thinking of cinnamon when I came across this one,

One of my favourite images from the book, all similar toned drawers, wooden pails, utensil crate and even the rolling-pin. Love that dirty blue colour!

The scrubby cabinet was on a porch, stocked ready for afternoon teas – how nice! Great wicker basket holding dried hydrangeas too.

The door and console both were painted with milk paint, the console with a black undercoat.

And it doesn’t get much more loved than this little fella,

So, what is your favourite image? Does a bit of blue do it for you?

Lovely images. So inspiring! I love a good dose of blue! My favourites would have to be Layla's coffee table and also the 'unknown' pic. Been looking at your older post and that Country Living book was a great find! Have a great weekend!

I so enjoyed this post Romana! The blue console table from Sarah's Fab Day appeals to me the most. And that gorgeous mirror placed on its top is true perfection.
