BLUE INSPIRATIONS


Vous voulez la vérité? Je suis très partagée par le bleu. 
C'est une couleur que je trouve belle, profonde, fraîche, sereine; 
c'est la couleur du plus beau ciel, de la mer l'été ... 
et pourtant cela fait longtemps que je n'ai pas eu de bleu à la maison. 
Exception faite pour la chambre des enfants 
où j'ai toujours eu envie de nuances franches : 
du cyan dans leur chambre de bébés, 
du bleu lagon dans leur chambre de petits garçons. 
Mon tout premier appartement à Paris était tout en blanc et bleu. 
Et depuis, plus rien!

Do you want the truth? I am torn by the blue. 
I find this colour beautiful, deep, fresh, serene; 
it is the color of the most beautiful sky, the sea in summertime ... 
nevertheless it has been a long time since I had something blue at home. 
One exception : my kids' room where I've always picked firm hues: 
cyan when they were babies and a  blue lagoon when they grew up. 
My very first apartment in Paris was all in white and blue. 
And since then, nothing more!


Depuis au moins deux ans le bleu est revenu en force dans la mode et la décor. 
Et quand je vois les magasins remplis d'objets bleus, 
du bleu clair pastel au bleu foncé indigo, 
je me répète "et pourtant c'est beau". 
Et pourtant je n'ai toujours rien de cette couleur chez nous. 

In the last couple of years, blue came back in fashion and interior decoration. 
And when I see stores filled with blue objects, 
from light blue pastel to dark indigo, 
I repeat to myself "it is beautiful indeed." 
And nevertheless, I still have nothing of this color at home.


Voici donc quelques belles inspirations pour cette couleur intemporelle ... 
peut-être que j'arriverai enfin à la voir chez moi, quelque part, par petites touches ... 
à suivre! 

Here are some beautiful inspirations for this timeless color 
maybe I will finally manage to see it in our new sunny home, 
in small touches, here and there ... to be followed!


Alors, vous aimez cette couleur? 
En écrivant ce post j'ai pensé à des amies sous le charme du bleu depuis longtemps ...
peut-être c'est votre cas aussi.

So, do you love this colour? 
While writing this post I kept on thinking to some of my friends 
charmed by blue for a very long time ... 
maybe it's your case as well!


Belle journée à vous et à très bientôt

Have a lovely day and see you very soon

  2. YES! My favorite blue tone is indigo though! I have a blue sofa I have loved for years and will change now because change is good! Perhaps for a different blue? ;-)

    1. Gudy, did you see the new book on Indigo (http://www.yatzer.com/indigo-the-colour-that-changed-the-world)? It looks fantastic and I think I am going to buy it ... blue has become a sort of a therapy ;-) Looking forward to find out the hue you will pick for the new sofa ;-)

  4. My room as an adolescent was indigo blue and I loved it. Our kitchen has a few blue accents (bottles, cups, bowls, an orangina lamp etc.) but nothing mayor... Curious to find out if you'll bring some blue into your new sunny home!

    1. Judith, I am working on it. I think it would fit with the dark red of the "tomettes". It might take time though so don't be too in a hurry to see where I put some blue ;-) xx

  5. Such beautiful inspiration! Blue is one of my all time favorites and I love decorating with various blue hues. It always reminds me of the sea, blue skies and holidays. Wonderful!

    1. I've always loved blue in the kids' room where I've always picked pretty strong hues. I start putting it elsewhere at home but I am still pretty "shy" in doing it ... but I agree about the holidays inspiration :-) xx
