House of Blues

I came across this house tour on Apartment Therapy and just had to share. I love all the house tours on Apartment Therapy and, while fun to look at, most aren't exactly my taste. That's one reason I like it; it is something different. But last night I stumbled across a home that is fabulous, and right up my alley.

I just love all the blue...

With the bright white.

The walls looked like they are high gloss..almost lacquered.

I love it!

It makes me want to break out my paint brush.

Or even better, call a painter.

This crisp, clean style of decorating is really appealing to me right now.

  1. I too am drawn to clean, paired down, elegant spaces. This is gorgeous and yet it looks like a "real house" as opposed to the often unattainable ones we see in magazines. I love the modern art too! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have to agree with you. This home is fabulous, isn't it? Very glamorous for South Austin too... a town known for being laid back and earthy crunchy. Thanks for sharing a beautiful space with us over coffee. :))

  3. This is funny you posted this because I was just thinking this weekend I want to paint something high high gloss. I am adding this to my file!

  4. I could move right in and not change a thing.

  5. WOW! I love the rich blue walls!!

  6. Beautiful! I wish I had the guts to do something so striking!

    BTW, I'm about to give you a blog award. Come on by in about 10 minutes to claim it!

  7. I love the navy wall with white furniture and yellow accents - so elegant. I think this might be my inspiration for my guest bedroom...

  8. I forgot to say that they used one of my all time favorite fabrics on the pillows... the crewel embroidery ones... Schumacher Nuata in Lapis. I want to use this in my house somewhere, but where.
    I will love it from afar.... and those glossy blue walls give me goose bumps.

  9. That blue is delish- I love that room!

  10. I have always loved the combination of blue and white together. A dignified team!
