An Engagement!

I am happy to announce that my step-daughter is engaged!! We are so happy for her and our soon-to-be-son-in-law!!  They are both beaming with excitement and we couldn't be happier for them.  The engagement ring is stunning and features a gorgeous diamond flanked by sapphires. Sapphires have long symbolized truth, sincerity and faithfulness, making it the perfect engagement ring!  With blue sapphires the intensity of the blue is the most important factor.  The intensely rich hue in her ring reminds me of my latest blue.  I've recently suggested the color for a few projects and have used it in both bedrooms and dining rooms.  Here are a few rooms that showcase the use of navy blue as a wall color.

Here are some of my favorite navy blue paint colors:

Best wishes for a Happy Engagement!!!
