Peacock Blue....Is this color for you?

via Design Happens
Favorite color of the season:  Peacock Blue!! Sure, it is a bit bold, but it is so beautiful and glamorous! There are a ton of ways to incorporate this hot color into your home.  You can create a focal wall by applying this color to one wall or really go chic by painting the entire room!  Peacock Blue looks awesome with stark  white because it creates a high contrast, but it also works well with muted colors and neutrals, such as gray and off white. If you like the bold look, add a bit of Chartreuse to the mix.  Another great pair for this color is gold, which is my personal favorite! If you paint one wall Peacock Blue, try adding white as the second color and then add gold accents like mirrors or chandeliers.  If you are not willing to commit to Peacock Blue as the main color in your scheme, try adding a touch of it here or there! A tuffted sofa with matching bolster pillows from Monarch Restoration looks amazing in this color. If you think an entire sofa dedicated to this color is not for you, add some accent pillows in a rich fabric from IMAN home; she has a great peacock pattern. If you really just want a small dose of  this gorgeous color, try adding a Peacock Blue lamp like Susan Schneider's to your night stand or console table. Check out how other designers have showcased this beautiful, rich color.....
