BENJAMIN MOORE ORIENTAL IRIS 1418: "I'm emotionally attracted to periwinkle blue. It's soothing and serene and metamorphic, because it goes from gray into blue into lavender, depending on the time of day and the month of the year and the person looking at it. No two people see color the same way. Blue combines two things I love, the ocean and the sky, which lifts me out of the quagmire of reality." - John Saladino
Love all things blue and white? Then this bedroom is for you. I would not paint the walls blue but white. It will create a fresh and clean feel, but the real charm comes from the mix of patterns and shades of periwinkle. A solid comforter keeps the combination of fabrics and colors from looking too busy. All the accessories -- from the lamps' blue-and-white shades to the blue-and-white rag rug --complement the scheme. Dark nightstands provide a bit of visual relief.
