Mountain Blues

A national survey by House Beautiful found that blue was Americans’ favorite color.    In the mountains, we tend to gravitate towards the warmer hues of blue like the blue in the central pillow on the sofa below.  The addition of the reds and greens in the other pillows and accents adds a warmth to the room that would keep us feeling cozy during our long white winters!

In an otherwise neutral room, a rich blue is a strong accent color. In the room below, Betty Burgess makes a statement with the blue chairs and then pulls the color back in as an accent in the vases on the mantle and fireplace hearth.

In the image below, the warm browns of the leather provide a perfect backdrop for the rich navy blue on the interior of the trunk and in the plaid of the pillow .
