Not everybody likes blue

As you know, we recently bought new blue leather furniture and a colorful area rug for our living room. David and I both love blue. It’s our favorite color.

But, Maria told us that she is “not a big fan of blue.” She thinks we over-did it, because we also have a blue wall to wall carpet. “Too much blue,” she said.

I was surprised, because I thought blue was a popular color, appreciated by many. I think she prefers brown and other earthy colors. Me? I like the colors of the sky, the rainbow, the sunrise and the sunset. I don’t care for brown that much.

But, hey, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

This is our new living room furniture. The area rug is called “Sunrise,” and it is sold on Amazon:

This is a painting of “Lahaina Harbor” by artist David Warren. It matches the color of the furniture. Note the yellow accent wall, which goes with the area rug:

This is our blue planter, sitting on our coffee table:

Look at my blue tablecloth and matching cloth napkins:

As you can tell, I love blue, and so does David. But, not everybody likes blue.

    …blue is my favorite color too. I am looking forward to seeing the Lahaina Harbor and the huge banyan tree!

    I love the color blue. I painted my daughters bedroom blue when she was about ten and she just cried because she hated it. A few years later she painted it black! That took a few coats of white when we wanted to sell that house. But I guess I learned my lesson.

    Everyone has their favorite colors. I think your blue leather furniture is beautiful. Well done, if you ask me who also loves blue. 🙂

    I do love blue – it was my last bedroom’s colour but I shifted to turquoise when I moved to the apartment. Another shade of blue. I do love red accents which I have in my living room.

    We all have our own tastes and it makes life interesting when others love the earth tones – I am not a fan, I find them deadening.

    The colours contrast well

    So I had to look it up, because I like blue too. Most popular paint colors are earth tones. Most popular car color is black. But the “most popular color in the world” according to apartmenttherapy is … ta da .. blue!

    You do what makes you happy. You are the one who has to live in your home, day to day, and it should make you happy to be there. Ignore what others say. Of course, that means when you go to their home, you just enjoy what they have and don’t say anything about their choices.

  9. Lakshmi Bhat Says:

    Yes, tastes differ and as you have said beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Your home is beautiful.

    If you and David like blue that is all that matters. Your home is obviously decorated with love and care – and both show.

    Blue is beautiful for the inside of a house, but I would not want my house to be painted blue. I prefer a blue gray house with white trim. The house down the street has this color combination and it is stunning.

    I’m not crazy about blue but hey, we do what makes us happy. I am surrounded by blaze orange walls.

    I prefer reds and brown for my decor, but your blue choices are very nice and makes you happy. That is what matters.

  14. Alexandria Says:

    You have put a lot of care and thought into creating a lovely home!

  15. Andrew Says:

    Our carpet is blue. Your furniture is a very different blue to the carpet and I think it works fine.

  16. DeniseinVA Says:

    I like your blue décor. It’s my favorite color too, that an deeper reds. My Other Half likes green 🙂
