blue armoire and chaise

ECS_Swedish Country with chaise

What would you call this shade of blue? Wild cornflower blue? Or summer lake blue? It’s the perfect accent to offset the muted and spare Swedish country look of this room. And it’s got me thinking that one of the main differences between Swedish country style and French country style is that for the Swiss, less is more, and for the French, more is more, wouldn’t you say? How perfect too is the elegant upholstered chaise and the antique mirrored sconces against the faded, peeling wallpaper?
