Colour Crush: French Blue

July 17, 2017

french blue

If  you’ve been following along over the years, you’ll have noticed that there’s one colour that pops up in my designs time and time again: blue.  And while I love everything from a saturated navy to the palest of sky blues, my current obsession is French Blue. The perfect cool blue and inherently sophisticated, I mean it’s named after one of the chicest countries in the world!

Perhaps it’s my yearning to spend a summer in France or perhaps it’s because when paired with white it creates the most fresh and crisp look.  Whatever the reason for my current turn to this particular shade of blue, I’m loving it.

Is there a colour you’re currently crushing on? What do you think of this shade of blue? I’ve got a feeling after scrolling through these images, you’ll be just as obsessed as me.

    Absolutely adore French Blue! Do you know where I could find those curtains that are in the first picture?

      Hi Colleen,
      Unfortunately I don’t know where the drapes are from as I didn’t design the space. A custom drapery workroom may be able to find a similar fabric for you. I’ve linked a few ready-made options with a similar feel. Hope that helps! Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Thanks, Neelam! Gorgeous taste you have!!!
    By the way, is the island countertop granite or some other material? May I ask what that color name is?

      Hi Val,
      I didn’t actually design this space, if you click here, you’ll be able to find all the details 🙂

      Suzanne Kasler designed the living room. Several of the upholstered and case goods are sold by Ballard Designs.

    I love the kitchen island color. I bought a sample of Benjamin Moore Hearthstone, but it doesn’t show any of the blue hues. It is a pretty color, but it is gray. Could the island paint color be any other color? I can’t seem to find anything that matches yet and would appreciate any suggestions!

      Hi Erin,
      This gorgeous kitchen was designed by Christine Sheldon Design, the specifics of the space were shared here. I hope that helps.
