Soft & Quiet: Blue

When thinking of soft and pretty colors, people often go straight for pink or lavender. But I think blue can also be very soft and feminine, too. In fact, did you know that until the 1940’s, pink was considered a boy color and blue was for girls?

Here’s some inspiration on how to use blue for a girl’s room:

And for the really adventurous, try a deeper shade like navy or peacock blue. These colors aren’t just for boys!
