Blue has a lot going for it. The color can be soothing and serene when presented in a lighter shade (hailed as a near-neutral) or bold and commanding when done up like a male peacock, as shown here. In fact, the zippy blue paint color in this Houston living room is called Peacock Blue.
Designer Gil Walsh used scalloped valances and drapes to create a rich look in the living room of this stately three-story Georgian home, choosing fabrics with colors of cocoa, burgundy and teal to echo the Oriental carpet, which was the foundation of the room's design.
