Blue and white is so common and yet so powerful.The mixture of brown/white and blue/white here brings a high society look back to nature. The wall vases are antique delft.
Does this remind anyone else of Sister Parish's White House bedroom design for Jackie Kennedy? I think it's the shade of blue, tall window treatments, and gilt - not identical by any means, but the feel is very similar.
A boy's room - and it's NOT in blue! This is a fresh, citrusy look, but it's still male. The subtle jungle elements in the wallpaper are well accented by the stuffed menagerie. My only hesitation? Such a lot of white on that bedspread - I feel sticky fingers in the future...

I couldn't agree more-I loved this house.
I wonder why? There's chinoiserie EVERYWHERE!
I loved the intensity of the blue in the first room - none of that baby blue stuff, this is a full on, slap you in the face of tranquility blue!
Antiques Diva - me too! Yet, it's also not offensive. It's a wonderful color.
Yeah that blue is great, in your face but elegantly.
I found the blues so invigorating. Great choice.
Gorgeous! I need to pick up the new Elle Decor immediately!
I totally agree re the white bedding, especially since those look like Leontine linens! Good lord I'd never give my kid $1000 sheets.
Alicia and G - agree - it's just a beautiful shade. Unfortunately, Elle doesn't provide the paint information!
Averill - I know. Dangerous stuff! I hope it's at least got some scotch guard on there :)
I love Aerin's style. Very classic without being stodgy. Great post! Have a restful weekend.
Hugs from Sweden ♥
You too Anne - have a creative weekend :)
MM - thanks so much for stopping by! Your blog is lovely too - and I can tell that even without being able to read Swedish :)
that blue is beautiful.
and the wall covering in the second image is fab.
The pale blue room got a particular charm, It looks like a movie decor , fantastic things could happen here, an inspiring room anyway.
In brief, a successful decoration, no?
I just adore that last room, gorgeous!
