Blue, blue, blue

Maybe it's because it's December, the approaching the holidays, the long nights and short days that I'm drawn to these vivid blues.  I'm not usually fond of bright color, formal interiors (or trim on pillows), but all week, I've been stealing glances of this room by Joseph Minton.  I just want to cradle that plump Fortuny pillow, lie back on the chenille sofa (Rose Tarlow fabric, by the way) and stretch out my flannel pajama-clad legs on that gorgeous ottoman.

Here's another photo of the room, plus there's 17 more for you to see at Traditional Home (link above).  Another bonus is that the on-line article includes the sources for many of the fabrics and furnishings Minton used throughout the home.  I think it's time my sofa had some new pillows.

  10. I am not a fan of formal anything, or of pillow extravagance, but you are right that room is most inviting. Helps to keep an open mind.
