All about blue

This months  House Beautiful explores the color blue. From denim to royal and all shades in between the blue hue was center stage.


They provided us with designers favorite blue paints and show cased some jaw dropping rooms in which the color blue was key.


Imagine my excitement when I found out via twitter that you were actually gifting some lucky New Yorkers blue chairs!


So dear readers of mine if you are in the NYC area keep your eyes peeled.


Throughout the city House Beautiful is placing blue chairs and the rules of finders keepers apply. The first person to find it gets to walk away with it.


How do you know where the chairs are going to be? They are giving out clues via their twitter account.


Here on some of the chairs you have an opportunity to win:


This chair is from Lee Industries and retails for $1,545. I’m dying to walk away with this one. It would fit nicely in my living room and look at all that bling with the nail head trim.


Another pick that I wouldn’t mind dragging home is this number by Room & Board that retails for $750.


I would actually love two of the following chairs for myself. How chic is this number by Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams? Ah true love and finding it for free is the only way it’s making it into my home with it’s $2,380 price tag.


I’m loving this shade of blue from Arhaus! It’s a great jolt of color. I actually found some mistint paint this weekend in that color and it’s just sitting around waiting for a project.


My favorites tended to be the more traditional chairs, but they also have a variety of modern picks that are heading out to be snatched as well.

To get a glimpse of all the chairs that are being given away check here!


If any of my New York readers snag a chair you must invite me over to check it out in person! I will be green with jealously! Perhaps I should make a trip into the city tomorrow and see if I happen to stumble upon blue heaven.

Are you sure they didn't say KENTUCKY instead of NYC? I know they can easily be confused! I love ALL of those chairs, especially the fluffy, comfy looking ones!
