The April 2016 Traditional Home has such an eye catching selection of blue fabrics, trim and furniture, it inspired me to search out the best blue rooms and rugs in designer showhouses. Here is my selection of the 11 best blue rooms and blue rugs and in designer showhouses across America.
Los Angeles designer Mark D. Sikes recently told Traditional Home, “I love the timeless combination of blue with white. A blue bedroom is always a good choice especially when using a mix of prints, solids and stripes.” Connecticut designer Lynn Morgan said “I use navy a lot….and while I love to pair it with white, it is so versatile, it can be paired with almost every other color.” Quoted in the April 2016 Traditional Home.
