Yes – I am back with yet another “to-do-or-not-to-do” list – one of my own little favorite treats to do! Today it is all about the blues! Blue is one of the colors that will transcend from summer trend to autumn trend – the only difference will be the shade of blue. Out with the light and close-to-neon-vibrants and in with the deeper and moody shades. I do love blue, blue tones in all directions works for me – but I must admit I am a sucker for the moody blues and the deeper shades of blue – petrol blue is a big winner for me.
So here goes – my to do and not to do when it comes to the world of blue. And as usual I start with the YES list (mostly because that is the easy part).
Yes to this wall… I do want to snatch that framed b&w photo as well.
Mix your blues with your greys – yes to that.
Wishbone in blue – I do love you. . .
Yes to letting your blue mix with the lemons!
Yes to the blue velvet cake – it may look a bit on the dangerous side of the cake spectrum – but just another reason to love it!
Yes to the overdose of blue! I love the little letters on the wall in the same shade as the wall – and this shade of blue goes perfectly with the more neutral or natural shades of the woolly blankets and the other randoms.
This is my kind of pop of color – I absolutely adore this chair – feel like this is just the kind of DIY I could manage to pull of without too much problem.
Yes to the blue bed – this room is perfection to me.
I do like a well dressed man – and I say yes to the blue wool sweater!
Now to the hard bit – the NO part of this. . . I have found that finding blue I do not adore is quite the task. But I have done my best and here they are – my no-no-to-the-blue:
No to the fur! This was one easy no – since I am generally not a fan of fur. . . I do not eat the fox – therefore I do not see the reason to wear the fox – if you get my drift?!
No to this blue chair. . . Shabby Chic you say? I say just shabby!
No to this overdose of fabric and blue. . . There is no way I would squeeze into this.
I must admit the creativity of this thing is pretty amazeballs – still I would not find a place for this in my space. So no to the blue suitcase chair.
There is no way I could make this sofa work. . . I do love vintage, I do love leather and I do love some blue – but this – no way!
This is just blue-on-blue-overload – I cannot deal with it. I am more of a pop some blue in there kind of person.
No! There is no way I can say yes to this!
I’ll end this misery with a blue bathroom – to me this is taking the whole “beach house” trend a tad bit far. . .

It is obvious that my choice is yes to the blue – now I just have to head out and find some good blues for my own space.
