Blue & Beige

My favorite combination of colors is blue and beige.  There is something so relaxing about baby blue.  It reminds me of a New England  cottage.  If it were up to me, every room would be combination of those colors with a pop here and there of others just to break up the monotony.  While I still live at home, (and boy that sounds pathetic) my wonderful boyfriend built a brand new townhouse about a year ago and of course I have a say in the decorating! Both because my man knows that I have good taste, and because I demand a say. Luckily for him, we agree on general color schemes.  He is a fan of blue also. So I am looking for inspiration for a blue and beige living room.  Of course I am not going to try to apply high fashion to his bachelor pad, at least not yet, but a little hint here and there that tells people that walk into his house that he has a girlfriend would be nice.  As of now, he has white walls and furniture that he bought off of his parents.  Oh yes, it is bad.  So here are some pictures that inspire me...and hopefully him.  I fully plan on decorating his house and the biggest plus...I can use his money to do it! :)

Me too! Especially the 3rd picture. I loveee the little bit of sheen. Something different. I think wall paper adds a ton of personality to a room. And it can pull everything together!
