Hello, all! It’s Mari here from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find beautiful and interesting home decor inspirations. I’m so happy to be visiting with you at New York Interior Design to share a guest post about winter dÈcor inspiration. I’ve chosen what I think is one of the loveliest of color palettesógorgeous stormy blues.

I’ve pulled together eight rooms that show how appealing moody hues can be, for both background colors and accents. As seen in the storms that inspired them, these palettes are created by a lovely†mix of blues, with green, gray and even purple undertones. Please enjoy!

Stormy Blues

From pale blue gray to dark and mysterious navy, this living room is filled with stormy hues like clouds moving in from the ocean or rolling up over the mountains.

This eclectic space is one of my favorite stormy looks. I adore the wall art above the fireplace and the dramatic architectural detailing at the ceiling.

With red accents, this lovely home office is enveloped in a moody blue. The large painting adds a literal stormy element to the design

Shades of watery blue are dramatic in an intimate sitting area. I love the textures on the velvet loveseat and the contrast of a brilliantly-hued Chanel poster.

What a lovely mix of color we see in this space. Once again artwork is the focal point and literally interprets the stormy theme.

A muted stormy palette is stunning in this inviting beach house living space. In the soft glow from the contemporary pendant light, it’s a lovely mix of colors.

A single stormy shade of blue works beautifully in one of the Bellinter House bathrooms. The glossy dark wood flooring offers a lovely contrast.

It is amazing what you can discover when you have the time to walk around New York City and really pay attention to what is around you. I had the luxury just the other day to wander around looking for inspiration for a wrought iron railing for a stairwell that we are designing in one of our client’s homes. While I was walking up and down the streets I couldn’t help but notice all of the beautiful metal grid work that was created on the buildings. Some of the work was very simple straight lines, while others were very ornate and contained gold and brass metals as well as the wrought iron itself. It is incredible how this architectural detail can add so much character and interest to its surroundings. Next time you are in the city and have some free time, I highly recommend taking a moment to really admire the beautiful architecture and other details that this city has to offer. Here are some of my favorite examples..

I have made it a policy to keep all of my posts on Interior Design, or inspiration for interiors. However, I cannot help myself, I must write about our new member of the family “Honey”. She is an Imperial Shih Tzu , it was love at first sight. Honey comes to work with me all the time, and she is being trained to be a designer pup.. LOL ..this is my first dog ever. The timing was perfect, and so is she. I bought her from a pet shop named “Pets on Lex” I was reassured by a very notable trainer that they never get dogs from puppy mills. Honey has a very sweet disposition and is really smart. I bought her right from the window when she was 11 weeks old. I had a lot of help training her by the best trainer ever Pat McGregor. I never knew what I was missing. Following are some photos of Honey . Enjoy!!!
