Arguably blue is the most universally liked color and it comes in a variety of shades sure to suit even the pickiest people. The versatility of the color makes it a top pick for interior designers and Beth Haley Design is no exception.  Using these well-loved color, we transformed rooms with bright finishes that range from soft, soothing sky blue to brilliant, eye-catching cobalt and deep and stormy navy.  As it is a color that is well-suited for bathrooms, kitchens, offices and bedrooms, we chose six recent interior design, kitchen renovation and bathroom remodel projects by Beth Haley Design to showcase different hues of blue, each is sure to cure your winter doldrums and inspiration your next project.

These bright-blue painted chairs energize the design, and by sticking to statement pieces, Beth Haley Design created a focal point without overwhelming the room with color. A nearby leather sectional is topped with blue pillows to create cohesiveness in the open concept design.
