COLOR WATCH: TRUE BLUE - A DESIGNER CUE ON HOW TO PROPERLY USE BLUE!

A variety of blue prints are used in this traditional dining room...including blue toile wallpaper, upholstered dining chairs upholstered in a blue and white stripe fabric, Asian inspired ceramic blue and white lamp and garden stool and a several blue and white pillows. (above)

Here are three striking rooms from California based interior designer Barclay Butera... The glue here that thematically ties these rooms together...is the color...blue.

The decor styles here and the use of blue are clearly rooted and inspired by European, American and Far East traditional styles...with the use of the blue and white patterns making a classic statement that works in almost any modern household.

A guest bedroom features a delicate blue and white stripe wallcovering or wall paper on all walls, blue jaquard bedding, blue and white Chinese ceramic garden stool and a dark brown wood mahogany sleigh bed to compliment all of the blues. (above)

Bold blue pillows, vases , pottery and table accessories provide a colorful blue splash in a primarily white open living room and dining room area. (above)

These photos were sent to me by Julie Du Brow, Barclay Butera's publicity firm. Thank you Julie for these!
