Proof that Black and Blue TOTALLY Coordinate

White, Grey, & Indigo | Featured on House of Valentina

I am working with a client here in Atlanta who happens to love a balance of light, darkness, and shades of indigo.  She just naturally gets that black and blue totally go together.  The old days of not wearing white after Labor Day (Is that an American tradition only?) and never mixing black with brown or blue with black are over.  They are the perfect compliment to each other and this home is proof of that.

I was showing my husband, Jack, this home a few minutes ago and he asked a question that I get asked all the time.  Can you create something like this in America?  And can you do it in suburbia?  The answer is absolutely yes!  The key is to paint the walls in shades of matte grey, white or black.  Add white linen curtains to the windows (preferable without blinds if at all possible) and consider adding small details like window seats to mimic the radiators while keeping the lines simple within each room.  Take a look around and I'll post a few more links below for anyone interested.
