Design snapshot: Shaker blues

Blue base trim, a simple chair rail, and an understated peg rail modulate the height of this cream-colored Shaker hall wall. Intermediate blue door jambs and posts punctuate its length. The shimmering, darker blue, wide floor boards cheerfully bounce light while drawing you forward. The rhythm of the vertical blue components and the implied hierarchy of the horizontal blue elements, together, differentiate space within this hall, creating a sense of both enticement and comfort. I won’t soon forget the luscious blues that beautifully offset the creamy white backdrop. It’s a dreamy palette.
