Hawaii Ocean and Dazzling Blue

Blue hues represent openness, serenity and restoration, and what better way to celebrate spring than by giving a refreshing look to your home decor?

Our newest Color Craze duo, Hawaii Ocean and Dazzling Blue mesh the bright blue of the with the deeper, complimentary shade of Dazzling Blue to make a beautiful pairing that is sure to reinvigorate, bring inner peace and stability as we transition from the renewing energy of spring into the slower (and hotter!) summer months.

Blue palettes like this combo transport my mind to the restfulness and tranquility of our beautiful oceans. Our oceans need help now more than ever. In honor of World Oceans Day, coming up on June 8, 2019, join me in supporting this wonderful cause that strives to promote a healthy future for our bountiful bodies of water.

 

World Oceans Day is celebrated each year in collaboration with the Ocean Project and connects events, volunteers and donors from around the world that support the health of our worldwide waters. Find more information, including how to donate to World Oceans Day, here. For more information about the Ocean Project, click here.

Blue hues are always in style, and they can really add a sophisticated look to your home.  This combination storage and dining area featured on Domino’s style blog is a perfect example.


The bright and bold look of this New York City kitchen-dining room hybrid makes a statement that is sure to be remembered by all who visit it.

For a subtler take, these bathroom tiles featured on Designtra are perfect for when a bath needs to be an escape to more placid waters than those that come from the faucet.

Color Craze: Caneel Bay Blue and Sea Green, Colors of Peace

Caneel Bay Blue and Sea Green

Fresh, clean, invigorating and calming all at once. Blues and greens are natural palette companions but this duo has a special relationship. 

Ray Anderson Quote

Often paired in real-life depictions of the richness of our fertile planet, we are reminded of the beauty of Earth and asked to respect it as our one and only universal home.

While I have enjoyed working with these life-affirming colors in preparation for creating this post, they reminded me of how easy it is to forget that many parts of the world are still recovering from the effects of weather-related disasters. Parts of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are still rebuilding from hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Join me in support of the rebuilding of the US Virgin Islands by donating to any of these worthy funds today.
