Tried & True
SHADES OF BLUE
This calming colour is used in the Skellys’ home to unify the decorating scheme. From patterns and stripes of cobalt and sky on toss cushions and bedding to solid blocks of indigo and navy on walls and upholstery, the hue is found in every room. Luckily, it’s one Elizabeth was only too happy to live with. “It was my mother’s favourite colour,” she says. “She passed away a few years ago after battling Alzheimer’s for 13 years.”
Blue is also the perfect companion for the crisp whites and neutral creams so popular today, and is making an on-trend statement for home decor this fall.
