It only really, truly got warm (OK, sweltering) here in New York last week. I’ve installed my window A/C units and the sun is out well into the evening, but my bedroom still feels like it’s stuck in winter. I’m hoping to make it feel a bit more seasonally appropriate and am inspired by the crisp whites and blues of Marianne’s nursery and this month’s Color of the Month, Paradise Blue.

Since I share my bedroom with my husband, I try to keep his more masculine taste in mind even if I don’t really want to (sorry!). I feel like something along the lines of this color palette from one of the suites at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn could do the trick. Clean, fresh, and summery without being girly. Do any of you have any no-fail, battle-of-the-sexes solutions for your home?

    The blue is completely versatile which makes it a great choice. It can be mixed with lighter more delicate colors but also earthier colors to satisfy both you and your husband. If you want to see the blues used in complete color themes check out the Color911 app. It comes with color themes already made and you can see any color you have in mind used in a wide range of beautiful color themes. Check it out, it is great for color inspiration! Color911.com
