One of my favorite finish colors in our ever-expanding palette is the Cobalt Blue. It’s brilliant and bold and reminds me of sitting at the ocean’s edge with my toes in the sand.
Tony Stafford, executive chef and owner of Ford’s Fish Shack in northern Virginia, is also smitten with the hue. He has used it throughout his two restaurant locations and, in particular, during the recent remodel of the outdoor seating areas.

It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!
Fall is a great time to cozy up at home and enjoy the longer evenings once we “fall back” in time. It’s also a great time to infuse warmer colors into your home décor palette.
