Blue as a Neutral

As you may have noticed - neutral colors aren't typically our thing.

But as we all know, it's a very popular trend right now and many of our customers are taking that direction in their own homes.

So we came up with a compromise: pale blue as a neutral.

And we actually rather like it. It isn't a complete departure from our own style and the use of blue offers a great compromise for couples with different preferences.

So often, couples come into the shop with contradictory requests. One wants comfortable and warm and the other wants clean and unfussy.

Blue is cool and works well with both beige and gray tones. But it is a color and with the right accents, can bring some character and depth to an otherwise monochromatic look.

Even a single client wielding a Fall/Winter copy of the Restoration Hardware catalog would probably appreciate the sweet little scene above.

What do you think? Do you think pale blues, yellows and pinks can be used as alternative neutrals?
