I'm obsessed with this photo I ran across last week of Carolina Herrera Baez at her home! I have also been seeing an onslaught of blue lately in catalogs, stores and Pinterest. It seems the whole world is ready to embrace blue as the color of spring. I think I'm on board with that. Already the mosaic swim suits and blue-patterned dresses are getting me excited for a change of weather and state of mind. Hey a few blue throw pillows might help until our next holiday...
Harper's Bazaar Spring 2014 street style.
Got to try this look...
A vintage men's Ralph Lauren jean shirt buttoned up with leggings!
Yes, please! Morocco you know how to do blue and pools...
In fact blue tiles are a huge inspiration this year...
Love them as a fresh backsplash!
Both looks from House Beautiful.
I'm crazy for these Tory Burch swimsuits!
Tory got the blue memo. She has so many blue things to fall in love with right now.
This adorable cover-up too.
Okay if it's just too frigid to even think swim, what about throw pillows?
I'm loving the navy and indigo with white and wood tones.
Perhaps a trip to Portugal? Did you know how they have darling streetcars?
One of my favorite spreads ever from Bazaar shot in Morocco.
I want the whole look, sandals and bag especially.
My pal May is there now for her 50th with girlfriends and riding camels in the desert!
I can only imagine how cool that must be.
The amazing Mary McDonald in Veranda.
A beautiful mix of tile, plates, stripes and prints.
This month's House Beautiful was chock full of blue.
This home (both pics above), designed by Miles Redd was especially fabulous and inspiring!
Indigo is a memoir combining a woman's search for her identity and a research into the origins of Indigo.
I'd love to read this! Has anyone else?
Perfect indigo on this coat!
Lorenzo Castillo - Pinterest. Loving this wallpaper!
Denim and dark blue are also everywhere now.
Paint something boring blue. This desk really makes this room!
Dreaming of a summer dinner with a mismatched mix of blue plates and linens.
Plates can be beautiful wall art too.
Think I'll start collecting...
Ralph Lauren Home
Okay sorry last Tory Burch. Just so perfect this dress.
Charlotte Moss in Veranda. Love her!
Another fabulous melange of blue from Elle Decor.
Digging these shorts with maybe a slouchy navy blazer and cute flats?
Crazy for this J Crew pair.
I'm going to redo the boy's bath this year and I may do one wall in a similar navy.
It's just the perfect navy, not too dark. (Okay reality- will dark show the dirt more?)
Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014
I'm done with my brown rugs. (You know the feeling?)
This pretty navy rug also from Pottery Barn has me wanting to switch and go blue.
I'm also a fan of muted denim-hued blues.
Close your eyes and you are there! Fab wardrobe included!
Spring is just a few weeks away. Hang in there pals in the snowy climes!
We can do this!
(How boring am I right now? I can't stop thinking about the next episode of Downton Abbey. I don't know how we could make it through January without it!! )
