Tuesday Huesday: Swedish Seaside

My absolute favorite color in the whole world is blue, and I try not to “hog” too many of these Tuesday posts with it.  I realize that it’s not everyone’s favorite color – yet it’s difficult to deny the tranquility of shades of blue.  When I spotted this Swedish seaside layout in Cottage Style, I loved how all of the blues came together with white to make a very peaceful and calming environment.  The article also mentioned a “return to painted pieces.”

With all of these beautiful blues in one spot, you can imagine I wanted to put together a palette.  My thought is that you might not use them all together, but you could use any of them with white, or you could use two together for a tone-on-tone look to give your house some Scandinavian seaside charm.

This palette was created using FolkArt Acrylic colors (from left to right): Light Blue, Light Periwinkle, Periwinkle, Brilliant Blue

  1. Love lue and this color pallette is so special. Calming is the correct word.

  2. Blue is my favorite color too with the berries and mauve running a close second and third. But, I would probably not use that much blue in a room unless I painted the walls blue. Don’t know why, but that’s just my thoughts.
