Blue Rooms; Interior Designer, Amanda Burdge

Well the lovely Tobi Fairley has graced the cover of House Beautiful for their upcoming March issue. Huge congrats to her! I went online to see more about this fabulous room and discovered some old pics of other blue rooms that House Beautiful captured in the 40's, 50's and 60's, and couldn't believe how easily those rooms could transpire into todays interiors.

  1. I'm so happy you found my blog, as I'm loving yours! this is really a fun post. I love looking at vintage design mags. I have a few Better Homes and Gardens from the 50's and 60's. Have to say, I quite like that last shot!

  2. you know what all those rooms say... they just speak one thing... and its 'CLASSIC'... a huge congrats from myside too... i never knew blue could be so beautiful... its splendid

    take care and keep witing............

  3. Hmm, I am ahead of my time? I have painted my living room a blue/grey/silver color.
    Go me!
    heh heh

    But then, there is the cherry red kitchen....

  4. That's a great room! The colour issue is one I'd like to be in :)

  5. I just saw the "blue" issue of House Beautiful yesterday. I only had enough change in my pocket to buy Livingetc (silly me lost my wallet temporarily), but I'm planning to head back to the bookstore soon and by HB.

    Interesting how the "old" blue rooms could fit quite well into a 2010 house.


  6. I didn't see the old inspiration photos--thanks for sharing!
