A dramatic headboard made of natural wood is the focal point of this blue bedroom. Simple, neutral bedding and delicate lamps are stylish contrasts to the rustic look of the mismatched wooden nightstands.
This eclectic blue kitchen design features a peacock feather mural on the ceiling above the kitchen island, blue tiled floor, wood cabinets, new appliances, retro blue stools, backsplash, and recessed lighting.
Located in the front of the house in what once was an old attic space with dropped ceiling and skinny closet, a reflective electric blue vinyl wallcovering was used to give this bedroom bold style. The modish bedroom now also includes tons of closet space and a much larger window opening with lipstick red roman shades that floods the space with natural light.
This kitchen trends toward a warm and inviting aesthetic, cabinets and islands take a unique, trendy look. This custom island was designed to have an architectural appearance to serve as a focal point rather than a utilitarian surface.
Get that elusive deep blue hue gardeners crave with drifts of ‘Blue Heron’ corydalis (Corydalis curviflora var. rosthornii). Red stems contrast prettily with blooms and blue-green leaves. Plants grow 8 inches tall by 10 inches wide. For best results, give ‘Blue Heron’ a spot in part to full shade with consistently moist soil. Watch for blooms from late spring to midsummer. In cool regions, flowers can appear all summer, although plants may go dormant with hot, dry conditions. Other corydalis varieties offer yellow blooms or gold leaves. Hardy in Zones 6-8.
Several varieties of blue fescue (Festuca glauca) are available on the market. ‘Elijah Blue’ is a classic form, offering powdery blue leaves that bring color to the landscape year-round. Wheat-like seedheads appear in early summer. This grass thrives in dry conditions and is an outstanding choice for rock gardens, troughs or containers. Drought-tolerant and deer-resistant, ‘Elijah Blue’ thrives in coastal conditions, too. Plants grow 8 to 10 inches tall and wide. Hardy in Zones 4-8.
Deep blue blooms cover Blue Balloon Bluebeard (Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘Korball’) from early summer through fall. Flowers beckon all kinds of pollinators, making Blue Balloon a great addition to a wildlife garden. Deer-resistant, drought-tolerant plants grow to 30 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.
