a case of the blues (and pinks)


Cobalt blue has been sneaking up on me for about a year now. My love of navy blue seems to have won the blue battle, but cobalt is doing a pretty good job of holding down second place. While checking out the new Christian Lacroix collection at Designers Guild (nice, but not my cup of tea), I found myself drowning in a sea of gorgeous blue fabric and wallpaper options. I’m not really up for wallpaper anything these days (taking down the wallpaper in our old rental was a headache) but some of these would be great for lining drawers or other craft projects around the house. I’ve chosen my favorites above and below, so if you’re feeling a little blue, I hope these will do the trick. xo, grace [Image above: Brush in Indigo]

*And because I can never resist a good pink, I’ve chosen some great pinks below, too.

I love the ‘Linneaus’ in Indigo! I, too, have been slowly falling in love with cobalt; even the name ‘cobalt’ is strong and appealing! We’re on the hunt for fabulous blue & white fabric for the dining room as of late. Thanks for the post.
