I've been a bit preoccupied lately with blue in the living room. Do I want a blue couch? Can I commit to something so statement-making and not regret it? Last week, I had the opportunity to meet designer extraordinaire Sarah Sherman Samuel at an event and I couldn't help asking her advice on my personal dilemma. Her advice? If I can't bring myself to go with a bold, blue couch, work the hue in an accent chair or two. While I can't quite find the electric shade I'm looking for, I did find some rather handsome blue accent chairs that I definitely wouldn't mind seeing in my living room.
