Blue Skies, Smiling - 405 Magazine

Blue Skies, Smiling

A bevy of blues to fill your home and surroundings with clean, crisp cheer.


All of the cool blue inspiration in this issue left us wanting more, so we set sail for some local shops to find some practical and beautiful home items. Navy, robin’s egg, sapphire, cerulean … these beautiful pieces – from furniture to rugs to accessories for the home – actually made us fall in love all the more. Solid blue, different shades paired together, blue and white, and even blue and white and black have us smitten. While these choices prove you don’t have to go all in to add blue to your homes, they certainly have us thinking about it.

“Blue is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.”
