Blue Christmas

No one is fonder of a cream, silver and gold-decorated Christmas living room, than I, but sometimes it can be good to change the traditional up a bit and challenge the eye. I have worked with other non-traditional colour palates previous years, in decorating my own space for the holidays. I change things up a little from year to year for my own sake. Some years my eye craves something out of my usual comfort zone, as winter and the darker days settle in.

Not at all intentional, but I seem to have a selection of blue Christmas vignettes  to show this year.

Benjamin Moore Smoke 2122-40, one of the best pale blues I have found for north-facing rooms.

Benjamin Moore Overcoat CC-544 – can appear more grey than blue sometimes but the pink accessories in this vignette at The Cross Design really bring out the blue here

This window display has Benjamin Moore Flint Af-560 on the back wall. The pops of orange emphasize the blue.IMG_2128
