|I used to write a blog called Cute, Smart and Organized that was aimed at reminding you just how amazing you already are. The following is a post from that blog.|
Surround yourself in rich, beautiful cobalt blue.
Cobalt is everywhere right now - isn't it pretty? With a bit more purple than basic royal blue, it is fresh, exciting and timeless.
The vibrant, ultramarine color reminds me of my grandparents coming home from long trips, loaded down with Greek fisherman's hats, and postcards of blue-roofed, white buildings lining the most amazing blue waters I had ever seen.
Today, I'm giving you a little inspiration for adding some of that Mediterranean color to your home.
First, classic cobalt and white. This dual-toned color scheme has stood on it's own for centuries, and for good reason. Clean and beautiful, it can move from Blue Willow traditional to ultra modern without skipping a beat.
Of course, you don't have to stop with just blue and white. Left are three on-trend color schemes for cobalt inspired by the Greek Isles, with ideas for introducing them into your space.
