Color Obsession

My new color obsession is the blue of this Makita tool box I photographed  hanging around the house ever since we began our renovation.  I started looking for items in the color but found it a bit of a challenge because  it's a unique blue.  It's neither turquoise, aqua, nor baby blue.  It's Makita blue.  A blue that can be cooled or warmed depending on how and where you use it.  I hope to find a way to incorporate it into our new master bedroom or bath by mixing it with taupes and grays.  A tribute to the tool box used to create the new space.  Take a look at what I found.

I was reminded of Andrew Morgan's amazing talent with textiles while vacationing at the Ritz.  All of the beds are draped with his throws.  Years ago when Cocoon (the store) opened in Boston we hosted a trunk show for him.  Back then,  he was peddling his wares out of a duffle bag.  Congratulations on his success, he's so deserving!  His Peacock throw displays a great balance of color and design.  I particularly love the gray background.

When working with an accent color it's good to use it in other forms such as leather.   Room and Board's leather sofa in teal.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!
