According to Psychology Today, loving the color blue means that I love harmony, am reliable and always think of others.  Lovely…have a look and see what your favorite color says about your personality.

A few years ago when we moved back into our smaller home, we wanted to change the wall color from the rather bland, but accommodating and neutral Benjamin Moore bone white to a blue with a lot of personality.  I had seen a a spread in AD about a Moroccan home filled with stones, bricks and tiles designed and produced by the couple in the feature.  One of the rooms was a turquoise that I could not replicate, in spite of six attempts, so we settled on Benjamin Moore’s Silver Mist.  While the color is lovely, it lacks the punch I was seeking.

Given my search for the perfect blue, I was thrilled to see July Architectural Digest story capturing the blue moods of Pierre Sauvage, the new owner of Casa Lopez in Paris. The color of the walls in the photos with the sofa and the dining room is Bleu de Chine by Seigneurie.  The shade in the kitchen is a touch too royal  blue for my tastes, but Bleu de Chine is the color of my dreams!
