      Color Craze: Placid Blue and Yellow Pear

      Cheery, springy, pastels-a-poppin'!

      Sunshine printPlacid Blue and Yellow Pear together make me smile. The pleasant print you see above in these happy colors makes me almost love the idea of wallpaper. (gasp!) But alas, the thought has now been pushed from my decorative consciousness. It says a lot about this color duo if its prettiness invited me to have a brief visit to the mystical land of wall coverings. No offense to those who can appreciate the wonders of latex, vinyl and adhesive. I personally have more of an aesthetic connection to paint, brushes and rollers. Nevertheless, these hues are a perfectly refreshing pairing for any room in your home, no matter how the colors are applied.

      Pale Peach and Almond

      Pale Peach and Almond - JulRe Designs LLC

      Pale Peach and Almond

      Soft. Subtle. Delicate. Dreamy. This color duo gives new meaning to "creamy".

      Pale Peach and Almond

      I'm a huge fan of this color combination for the home because, when used with the right amount of balance, together they can bring a calming softness to rooms that may have a bit of edginess too. Yet these two colors don't take away from sparks of pizazz. They provide a soothing complement and a little intrigue of their own.

      Pale Peach walls are certainly not a traditional statement and require a subtle hand when it comes to accessorizing but the use of Almond, whether it is with wall trimming, furniture, a picture frame or a lighting fixture will help to create a welcoming room.

      If you're not ready to commit to full-on Pale Peach walls with Almond accents, use small home decor items to add subtle touches to your space. Peach and Almond hydrangeas, live or faux, are the perfect touches for Spring (or add Rust colored flowers to the bunch for Fall) in a neutral colored room.

      I would be remiss if I talk about colors named Peach and Almond here without offering an inspired taste of the actual fruit and nut combination. Try this Peach and Toasted Almond Ice Cream recipe from Table for Two. It's fabulous! You'll thank me later.

      The Greens

      The Greens - JulRe Designs LLC

      The Greens
      green /ɡrēn/
      adjective
      1. of the color between blue and yellow in the spectrum; colored like grass or emeralds.

      Green Natural Gemstones

      For me, the color green signifies an abundant life in harmony, and supremely good health - all things that are important for my overall wellbeing. I've carried my adoration of the hue into my business with our company logo in 4 ombre green leaves, each representing a part of the foundation of our organization's core values: a passion for color, a love of design, respect for our community and a commitment to service to others.

      Detox Spinach Green Smoothie

      One of my self-care rituals is a regular detox day consisting of yoga, meditation, lots of rest and a juice or smoothie cleanse. I feel that giving my mind and digestive system a break is one of the best things I can do to help create balance, replenish my energy and maintain my glow. Lately, I've been whipping up this absolutely delightful, deliciously simple Detox Spinach Green Smoothie that I discovered on the food blog, Vibrant Plate. Give the recipe below a try the next time you want a healthy treat!

      Detox Spinach Green Smoothie

      Ingredients

      • 2 bananas
      • 1 apple
      • 1 cup young spinach leaves
      • 1 lime (or orange, lemon)
      • water as needed (I substitute unsweetened green tea)

      Instructions

      1. Peel bananas and apple, cut into slices and put into a blender. Wash spinach leaves and add to blender. Squeeze juice of 1 lime (can be replaced with orange or lemon) into the blender.
      2. Add water or green tea as needed.
      3. Blend until smooth (I use my trusty Vitamix) and serve.

       

      The Color Lab Blog - Green Handbags

      Of course, my obsession with green wouldn't be a real thing if it didn't continue in my closet. I use the vibrancy of the hue to liven neutral looks - tans, beiges and browns never had a better partner. Colorful accessories, like the handbags I found and love above, are a major way to make a dynamic impact with any outfit and adding almost any shade of green will take your OOTD to bright, exciting levels.

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

      Color Craze: Caneel Bay Blue and Sea Green, Colors of Peace - JulRe Designs LLC

      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.
