Happy March! The birds are chirping, and it’s constantly raining — all signs that spring is near! And I sure am ready for it. This spring, I’m really drawn to blue hues. Maybe it’s in anticipation of blue skies after a momentary rain shower. Who knows. I do love blue, generally. It goes with most everything, to me, and can evoke different emotions depending on your hue of choice. Here are a few examples:
Blue and Grey
For a soothing, calm look and feel.
Blue and Brown
Can be natural and warm when a lighter blue shade is paired with brown hues with golden tones, like tan.
Or contemporary urban when muted blue is paired with deep, rich brown.
Blue and Green
For a bit of vibrance, mix pastel green with denim blue.
Or go all the way into bright turquoise and neon green!
Blue and Red
For a little Asian flair, a good alternative to gold and red or black and red is blue and red. Cobalt blue and persian red, that is.
Or for a more traditional feel, mix in plum red and light slate blue.
Blue and Orange
Just a hint of orange can add a little funk into your style.
And a little bohemian chicness, too!
There’s also blue and peach; blue and yellow; blue and pink; blue and maroon…. I could go on and on like Pvt. Benjamin Buford ‘Bubba’ Blue in Forest Gump listing out all the different shrimp dishes he’d make. But I’d rather hear other blue pairings from you! What’s your favorite?
