~ Bleu ~


I'm adding a few touches of Bleu in my home decor here at 425



I was inspired to add some bleu here and there after receiving my beautiful grainsack pillow from
I love the pale bleu stripes,so soft and it's also handsewn




The touch of bleu blends perfectly with all of my whites

I like to add greenery to unexpected pieces like the antique french enamel sugar canister below
I love the bleu lettering



Bleu ~ Blue

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
xo,
Rachel

When I saw Bleu I had to come over. I love blue spelled this way. It is the name of my french maltese doggie Bella Bleu...which means beautiful blue (just like the ocean). Lovely bleu touches in your french farmhouse and the grainsack pillow hand sewn by Michele. ox

Nice touch of blue! Your photos are great!

You have a great sense of design. I love the subtleness of the blue stripes as well as the fabric of the cushion. With a palette of white splashes of any colour can look wonderful if its tone is correct.
