Summer 13’s hottest hue- BLUE.
Intense, royalish blue, straight out of the crayon box. The color my son Cooper has begged me to slather upon his walls for at least 3 years :) He is still working on me…
The forecasts said it was coming, and they were correct! I see it everywhere. From catalogs, magazines, movie sets, to homes near you.
This hue is quite heavy, so you will notice it balanced by light decor. White, natural materials, metallics. Bright accent colors make it feel more playful and young.
A love or hate, isn’t it? I happen to love it in a restaurant setting. After a hot day…
Every time I see this particular shade, I think of a brief stop my Mom & I made on the Island of Capri/Italy. The most beautiful shades of ocean blue ever.
A powerful color sticks with you. Who is on board for this trend? I think it will be somewhat brief. Stay tuned for peach- cheers readers!
