What about blue ala Carrie’s new digs!

Carrie's new bedroom, Sex and the City

I posted just below about this latte gold and blue bedroom colour scheme… which I do still love, but had always lacked the colour ommph I’d been looking for. Perhaps this will be better?

he electric blue shade of the rooms coupled with the warm bright lights from the lamp cast such a lovely glow over Carrie’s (from Sex and the City movie) space. I’m entranced.

Coupled with white, the blue ties in styles from all periods, which is nice to see. I could work with this!

    The latte gold and teal looks warmer. I too was considering Carrie’s electric blue but once I looked at the swatch at Benjamin Moore, thought that it might be too cool a color for my bedroom. It is stunning, though.
