Straight from Regina’s laptop. Sacre Bleu!
When I was a little girl, I asked my Mom to please, please, please buy me a box of doughnuts. When she came home, I immediately ran with the box to my room. I ate them one by one while looking in the mirror to see any sort of change. You see, I had heard Crystal Gayle’s song “Don’t it Make My Brown Eyes Blue” but to my six-year-old ears, it sounded like “Doughnuts Make My Brown Eyes Blue”. Man, was I excited — I could change the color of my eyes by eating doughnuts!!! When it didn’t happen, I started crying and my Mom came into the room to talk to me. When she heard the story, she told me that I was beautiful the way I was. She made me feel so much better. (I just recall her comforting me — but I can imagine that she had to have laughed heartily at some point. Will need to ask her about that.)
Since then, I’ve had a bit of a wary eye on the color Blue. Don’t get me wrong – I do like it quite a bit. It’s just, you know. Some dreams die hard. Let’s move on to a few beauties.
This tiled gorgeous-ness was featured in Elle Decor Italia.
The home of designer Michelle Halard was photographed by her son François Halard. The blue on the plaster walls of the French estate is a custom mix. The wooden chandelier was once a stage prop!
Beautiful and seamless ocean-inspired ombre finish by Miami-based Sweet Hues.
Soft, lovely colors and vertical pattern via Seabrook Wallcoverings.
Gorgeous, gorgeous ceiling (and plaster walls!) – the sublime artistry of Michael Duté.
Love this space as featured in Architectural Digest. The big glossy work of art is just perfect but I also like the added touch of the slim stenciled border.

So. I looked up Crystal Gayle on YouTube. I’m telling you — I can hear a “doughnut” in there! I feel vindicated. Regina 1, Crystal 0. Except for the fact that I still don’t have blue eyes. There is that. But this Brown-Eyed Girl is over it. Kinda.
