The spirit of blue.
I’m so pleased to have one of my designs featured in the January 2016 issue of Connecticut Cottages and Gardens!
I’m so pleased to have one of my designs featured in the January 2016 issue of Connecticut Cottages and Gardens! This Greenwich home belongs to a family who relocated from UK. They wanted a complete remodel of the home to make it suitable for their lifestyle. The design is formal enough to respect the architecture of the home but with an ease to accommodate a young family and their dog. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of the magazine to read more about the details of this project!
To me, Nautical Blue brings to mind a more lush, sophisticated take on summer.
The word nautical typically conjures up images of novelty items like anchors, gulls, and sailboats. To me, Nautical Blue brings to mind a more lush, sophisticated take on summer. It’s a strong, bold color that reminds me of growing up on the water. Nautical Blue makes me think of the ocean, reflections, and the places where I find inspiration. As part of an interior, you can do a play on a nautical theme in a subtle way by using nubby fabric or a blue and white stripe. The interpretation of this shade and theme doesn’t have to be literal.
