sea blue

Spring is just around the corner and today I’m thinking of the sea and the many shades of blue it can be in a matter of moments.  Living by the water, I remain intrigued with the color changes that happen over a period of hours, minutes, or even seconds.  Each shade of blue captivates me.  So many times I think I have a “favorite” blue as I watch the waves lap at the shore or cross over a bridge, and slowly it morphs into a color even more interesting.


I spotted this beautiful bayside home tour by talented designer, Joe Lucus, which much like the sea, reveals a gorgeous range of blues from the palest of pales to rich, deep hues.

Love the airy living room with its touches of light blue.

I died a little when looking through more pics of this home (and his overall style) on his website – a must see.  The custom sectional in this home nearly stopped my heart.  Here’s a sneak peak of the exterior to entice you to see more…

And just as soon as I thought I loved the living room pale blue accents the most, I was equally intrigued with this deep hue on the bookshelves in the study.

The color of these cabinets is Sherwin Williams Slate Tile #7624.  It reminds me of the deep sea on a cloudy winter day.  This rich hue really anchors the space.  I’m going to mark this color in my dreamhouse files…maybe it could be a future study color.

See the rest of this beautiful home over here.

Cheers to the many shades of blue!

    I love light, bright, and airy (Scandinavian design) everywhere but a library. Nothing beckons one to read or reflect like a rich, deep, color in a library. Of course then one needs the masculine leather couch and velvet swivel rockers to go with it. I pinned this blue for my cabin/cottage that does not exist in my home area of Northeastern WA state/Idaho border overlooking the lake that I don’t own property on. Sincerely, Ohio Wife/Mother! :-)
