My Favorite Color? Blue&Green
May 13, 2016 § 2 Comments
When I was in college, back in the style-challenged ’70s, my response to “What’s your favorite color?” was always “blueANDgreen.” They came as a set for me, and even the vintage floral fabrics of that decade still have a nostalgic, times-were-great-back-then appeal.
So I am thrilled to see the combination back around, especially for the summer. Talk about bringing the outside in… is there anything more appealing than the yellow-green shades of Hosta together with the cool watery turquoise blues? The combo works for me.
So as I do every year at this time, I put away all my hot-looking accessories including my red and cream striped window treatments, art with spicey oranges and reds, and all the red pillows on the sofa, and I replace them with the cool-palette colors that remind me of summers at the lake and carefree times. Summer is here!

That’s my favorite combo, too! Except I’ve never been brave enough to do a true blue wall, as it seems too cool and overwhelming. Green, on the other hand, is all over my house. I like bluish greens, like Ben Moore Wythe Blue and Martha Stewart Milk Pail. I also like SW Rainwashed.
Gorgeous paint colors you mentioned. I have Wythe Blue in my bedroom. Love it!
