{live here, eat that} something blue

L: Danish home via Bolig Magasinet.| R: Blueberries & Lemon Mascarpone tart by Donna Hay.

When I was a little girl, it was by far my favorite color, but now I hardly have anything blue in my home – or my closet for that matter! Not sure what happened there, today I like more energizing hues like red, green and purple. But how calming would it be to live in this Danish apartment bathed in blue? Pia, the woman who lives there, definitely worked her favorite color in and out and throughout. Blue in every room and she dared to used many shades of it. Her grey sofa complements the blue hues perfectly, while the colorful throw pillows and bed linens she added help break the monotony a bit.

Do you guys have a favorite color? How much of it do you have in your home?

And while you’re bathed in blue, you should think about baking this yummi blueberry & lemon mascarpone tart. The pictures I used at the top of my post is from a recipe by Donna Hay, but unfortunately I couldn’t find the original recipe on her site – but try this recipe by Sugar and Snapshots (pics below), seems like a winner to me!

    Oh. my. goodness. That tart looks amazing! The rooms are beautiful, as well- so pretty and relaxing. I have a lot of blue throughout my house; in fact, my living room is now a nice dark shade of blue!

    Blueberries and all shades of blue are my favorite!! I have more red in my home, but I feel blue is much more relaxing and welcoming. I’ll need to revamp my place and make that blueberry pie!!!
