Saturated and vibrant, cobalt is blue's most intense shade.

And in the shop now, a rare find!  We have a pair of mid-century cobalt blue hobnail lamps with 3-way switches and new silk drum shades.



Incredibly vibrant when placed in front of a window, where the cobalt glass is illuminated by natural light.



$175 for the pair.  Email inquiries to thegreenroominteriors@gmail.com.

Have a bright start to your week!

Gorgeous group of photos you put together. And the lamps are lovely too!

Great images and wonderful inspiration. I love cobalt and I'm a real fan of more peacock blue. I love it when people are brave enough to go with it!

Blue is just heavenly, all shades of it! I love saturated color and my foyer is just a shade above cobalt :) My wedding bands are made of sapphires, so clearly I love the deep blue "see"! Love your rendition here XOXO

Kim,
Love the photos of the cobalt and orange! That combination is my favorite. I'm with you on the chair thing, I have way more then I need but a good one at a great price is hard to resist!

Very pretty. I like that painting but what really caught my eye was the prayer candle piece below it.

Love cobalt blue...was a house tour and one home had their butlers pantry painted a cobalt blue in high gloss, it was out of this world gorgeous. The lamps are great, really will add a lot to any room. Enjoy!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

All of the pictures are so pretty. I really like the lamp. You are right it would look great around a window where the light could shine on it!

My Interior Life said...

I'm loving all your blue inspiration pics and then I got to your lamps. Wow! What a couple of beauties!!

Hampton said...

you must have been reading my mind! Love cobalt blue and have been searching for a lamp that color for a few weeks--great post!

SHERRY HART said...

Beautiful lamps...wow. I would buy then but then I would have to start over in a room....which in itself is not bad...but maybe I should finish what I have started first :)

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

The lamps are a perfect way to bring in just a touch of cobalt blue to a room when covering the walls or a sofa in the shade wouldn't work.

Sara Mueller said...

love the color! so bold and elegant.

Mona Thompson said...

Beautiful cobalt blue! Aren't we happy to see color?

Andrea @ White Picket Fences said...

Those lamps are gorgeous! Hobnail anything is my favorite stuff to collect. Also, the room with the high gloss walls is heaven.
