French Blue doors and shutters

I recently had a new FB friend ask me a question about blue trim colors for a white house.  I shared with her the color I had used on my lead glass door for an antique booth that I had at Uniques Gallery in Roanoke, TX  a beautiful deep blue from glidden called cosair




Then I went on pinterest and searched for French Blue doors and I included in my search French Blue shutters and storefronts




















It appears the French sure do love the blue's seen in countrysides, storefronts, villa's


And my favorite designer......Rachell Ashwell is not shy in showing and using her love of blue and white!





 Here is a pic of Rachel in Front of the Lilliput Lodge at the Prairie, I posted a question on FB as to what color was used for her front and side door,  she was gracious to answer that is is a Farrow and Ball color but she did not have a swatch handy to name it.  She is so kind to take the time to respond to lil ole  me!!!  More pics of her blues and the liliput can be found at the Prairie website, it truly is a beautiful color of blue!



I love white.....clear crisp clean white with a shot of blue! I am inspired to use this decor in my antique booths as well as my home!!  (I am completely redecorating alot of rooms....that is a whole nother coupla of posts.....)





I have been drooling over this photo lately....... gotta love neutrals with a shot of blue

 Atlanta Bartlett  also a favorite designer of mine has in this photo shown me her perfection of the use of white with a "shot of blue" I smile every single time I view this photo.........the fact that it has the kind of stove you would build a house around does not hurt the eyes either......



I am putting in another Antique booth next to my existing booth at Lonestar, and was going to go all white again......but after looking at my previous booth in photo's one and two with the blue door, and researching all the french door photo's and since I already have one all white,  I promptly painted..........my doors............guess

A deep French blue, so when complete I will post photo's of booth with deep dark french blue french doors, I will show how a door booth is constructed, I will show my all white booth and chippy doors etc.

If you read this entire post then you deserve a blue lovers medal!!!!

Andrea I hope this helps with your Trim decision on your all white house!!  Please let us know how it turns out!!  


Have a wonderful day Ya'll!!
