I think I picked the color in part after seeing this amazing room from Better Homes and Gardens (although it could have a little something to do with the Colts and the Super Bowl). There's something about those beautiful walls, luxurious curtains and the tone-on-tone palette that makes me feel relaxed.
I must admit, this room doesn't look like it has the most comfy sofa. So if it were mine, I might replace that pretty love seat with something a little more fit for lounging.
Still, I think I could make it work!
Here are some more of the beautiful, calming rooms I found:
The living room above is from HGTV's 2009 Dream Home. I could stretch out on that sofa and I love the big windows that let in so much natural light.
I really like the simplicity and the modern vibe of the space above by Mint Home Decor. The pale blue walls are a beautiful backdrop for the white and green. The pastels also soften up the modern furnishings.
This vibrant bedroom from Olympic paints offer a completely different shade of blue than the room above it. But the color reminds of the Caribbean so I still find it relaxing.
I love black furniture with blue walls (it's what I have in a guest bedroom) and so I was drawn to this pretty living room from BHG. The chandelier is gorgeous.
Finally, this HGTV bedroom is not quite my style but it looks like a retreat, the kind of room you might find in some upscale hotel. The linens and the king size bed look perfect for a weekend away!
So do you find blue soothing? If not, what color would you seek for the perfect room to relax?
