I’m trying to be very intentional about decorating my home.
Once upon a time I would have filled it up just for the sake of filling it up.
I’m taking my time this go round but wanted to add some spring to my decor without purchasing items.
Come visit us at All Things Thrifty where we’re sharing the first peek at our kitchen since the move and the touches of spring that are bringing it to life!
They say blue is the new black.
You may have noticed a lot of navy blue popping up in all things home decor lately.
We just recently painted our office navy blue and are loving it!
We had some extra paint of several wall samples so we combined them together and put them to use making over this recent Craigslist find.
See the full transformation and colors we used at
And be sure to subscribe and stay tuned for more upcoming transformations.
We reached out to you on Instagram a couple of weeks ago to get your vote on which blue to paint our office.
You guys blew us away with all your comments! It was by far our most commented on post.
You guys are opinionated about your paints 🙂 and so are we, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite bold blue paints
that are super hot in home decor right now.
For us it came down to two contenders…
We present the ever popular Benjamin Moore Hale Navy on your left and Benjamin Moore Blue Note on your right.
Hale Navy came out on top from you guys on Instagram but anyone who saw the swatches in person, it was 100% BM Blue Note every time.
You cant go wrong with either.
Hale Navy comes out a beautiful deep “true” Navy while Blue Note has some more green and gray to it.
It just felt a lot more moody and I loved that it was a mix of colors.
They’re both beautiful.
This room went from light and airy to…
In the end, Blue Note came out on top!
Isn’t it gorgeous!
I cant get over the drama this room took on with a $30 gallon of paint!
While I want the majority of my house to be light and bright, every home could use a room or focal wall with a fun bold color.
We’ve collected a few of our favorites from the web if you’re on the hunt for just the right blue.
