Sorry I have been away!  I have been working on a special project.  One I hope to share with everyone very soon!  But until then... lets get back to our spring colors! (If you missed Yellow or Pink be sure to check them out.)

Ok - so I have been tossing up if I should do green or blue next.  I decided to do blue.  I think there are a couple different blue colors that are associated with spring.  There is the blue of the robin's egg, the bright blue of a clear spring sky, bluebell's and cornflower's, so many shades!

A lot of people do blue in bedrooms since it is a calm relaxing color.  However, besides using the cool, chill, mellow blues that people typically use, I think doing a bright pop of electric blue or turquoise can really add some energy to a bedroom!  I especially like the way it is featured in the rooms below.

Seriously - Don't you just love the bed skirt and pillows in the first picture!  So I thought I would round us up some fun blue accents to use about the bedroom.

The neutral base in this set is the Aspelund Bed from Ikea for $179.  That is a pretty good deal for a classically styled bed frame!   Starting directly right of the bed and going clockwise around we have the following:

- A Stick Lamp from Target for $16.99
- A Framed Andy Warhol Print from SmartBargins.com for $59.99
- A Blue Striped Vase from Ikea for $14.99
- A Blue Carafe from Ikea for $9.99
- A Blue Terracotta Clay Vase from Overstock.com for $23.49
- A 3-Piece Blue Bordered Quilt Set from Overstock.com for $33.99 (Great Deal!)
- A Bamboo and Cotton Throw from SmartBargins.com for $44.98
- A 4x6 Chenille Shag Rug from Overstock.com for $75.99
- A 14x11 Pop Art Cat Print from Target.com for $39.99
- A 18x18 Buddha Print from Target.com for $39.99
- A Blue Embroidered Pillow from Target.com for $19.99
- A Blue Cotton Cushion Cover from Overstock.com for $16.49
- A Blue Quilted Sham from Target.com for $14.99
- A Sapphire Silk Cushion Cover from Overstock.com for $27.99

I love the Blue!!  As always this is just me finding good deals.  No one poked or prodded me to offer these for you! 

So I am curious, do you like the brighter blues or the more mellow light blues? 

P.S. I am linking this up to Melissa's Inspired By Party at the Inspired Room! Come join the fun!

We are using blue in a few rooms of our home. In our bedroom, I'm mixing a shade of blue on the walls, with yellow and green accents, and dark ebony furniture.

In my office, I am using blue on the walls, white furniture, with orange and green accents.

I love that second bedroom, especially the pillows. I don't have any blue rooms in my home (yet :-)) but I'm in love with turquoise right now.

In that case, this kind of question should not be taken from any show telecasted
in specific country. Below are listed a few popular pubs where one can chill in Mumbai.
Ask your local club to run this for you.
