something blue

I have a new-found love for all things blue.
I don't know how it happened, but I would guess it all started with the bathroom.

I took a big leap out of my comfort zone when I tore down those silky red curtains of ours and turned our bathroom into a beach haven. But it brightened up the small space and cheered my mood.

And then I turned Talmage's nursery into a blue room. Before he had green curtains, then yellow...but it didn't seem BOY enough. So I put up light blue sheers, pulled his baby blankets from the closet, and added a fun little rug and some other things.

Remember those Anthropologie-inspired lamps I made a while back? When I saw this fabric I knew I could do something with it to match them...
And that's just what I did!

I thought that maybe the madness has stopped until I saw this darling laundry room decor at a boutique...I had to have them!

Maybe its the lack of sunshine in these here parts that is making me crazy for a little brightness...all I know is that I can't get enough!

What color do you just love in your home?

edit: hours after writing this post I even changed my blog background to blue. Have I gone mad?

I bought that same material a year ago to make a bag. I have yet to make anything with it.
