Growing up by the sea had a tremendous impact on me; watching the reflections upon calm waters or the turmoil of rough seas made me a passionate fan of the most sensational color, BLUE. Its array of blue shades are etched in my mind. This is the one color I swear by. Period. This is my color. But of course, I’m not the only one who feels so strongly about blue. It is a color with a universal appeal and a versatility beyond borders. Whether its the intensity of lapis, elegance of navy or timeless quality of denim, blue has a compelling fascinating character, no matter the shade or tone. So today, I just want to share some blue inspirational images because no matter what any decor or fashion trends are out there, blue will never be out of style!
One of the reasons I love blue is because it is always true. It has the widest range of tones and yet, it is always blue. Mix it with white or black and it’s still blue. No other color has that quality. Neither yellow or red (the other two primary colors have that quality). Therefore, blue tones-on-tones are fail-proof pairings. No matter how many blue shades you mix, it just can’t go wrong. Add an accent like yellow or orange and kaboom! you get an even more intense blue, like Van Gogh pointed out. (You may want to read about making successful color combinations). Personally, I keep on adding blue home decor accents (despite the fact that I already have two blue sofas and four blue dining chairs in my open plan kitchen) because I simply can’t have enough of it. It’s a color that invigorates me and has always inspired me the most. Its boundless versatility is epic! The collection of images below might help prove my point.
Obviously, I could go on and on about blue. But, I’ll spare you from that! LOL! However, I do hope that I got you to appreciate blue a little more, because for some reason it seems to me that trends are trying to overshadow its remarkable character.
Although, this is an extremely busy time for me at work, I do have my radars on for the Salone del Mobile in Milan that’s taking place as we speak. I hope to manage to bring to you the latest trends from the most exciting Furniture Fair.
Catch you later, x
