Things I love – Part 5 – Tiffany Blue

This is what I believe this is my last “Things I Love” post for a while.  There are other design elements that bring me deep joy, so I might add on.

I remember when I fell in love with Tiffany & Co.  A friend of mine got a keychain in that special blue box for a high school graduation present. Being from a small mountain town, I had never seen the signature packaging before.  Heck, I don’t think Colorado even had a store at that point.  When she took off that white ribbon, I knew it was something pretty awesome.  It took several more years for me to get a blue box of my own.  The packaging still makes my heart leap.  Several years ago, I went on a business trip and my husband surprised me by painting my bathroom Tiffany Blue.  He matched the box perfectly.  Although some people don’t get it (thinking it looks a bit toothpastey), I love the sanctuary that is a hot bubble bath in my giant jewelry box.

Here are some photos of rooms that use the color of my obsession –

Unfortunately, this isn't my bathroom. I would love a Tiffany blue clawfoot tub.

About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    I’m trying to find this Tiffany blue color for my daughter’s bathroom and I just can’t find a pure bright color from Sherwin Williams. Do you have any suggestions?
