Inspiring Blues

I recently changed colors in my living room. In California I had red as my accent color to go with our couches. Here I have been inspired to go with a wonderful blue. It ties in my grandmothers dining table and the lamp (seen in the photo below) that my mother painted for us as a wedding present. Jon thought I was crazy buying this rug as it was the first big blue thing in the room. But I think he is coming around to the idea. Still he thinks the rug looks like lots of fishing lures sewn together.




Here is the inspiration behind the room--my little Camille with her bright blue eyes that match her dado's eyes. I love those brilliant blues! I just needed a room to remind me of them on a daily basis.

That lamp is beautiful. You are so lucky to have such talented people in your family.

Everything that you do... is for a reason like in your post about her Grandma's song and family photos. You did this room for her. I'm so terribly sorry. I am praying for you. I won't forget you and your family.
