SHADES OF BLUE

Canadian Living - - Home & Garden -

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.
