Obsessed with Blue & Green

Blue sky and sea, green grass and leaves.  Maybe I’m obsessing over blue and green because I’m so ready for Spring.

What’s more prominent in nature than blue and green?

I really need to go to the beach, people.

I particularly am drawn to vivid blues paired with avocado greens, but I guess that’s becoming obvious!

Is this so different than what we saw about 50 years ago?  Check out this room in a  1964’s McCall’s Magazine.

What’s old is new again, right?  That’s just fine with me.

Love the look of these blue and green bedrooms:

It doesn’t have to be ALL blue and green – why not add another fun color, like a shot of hot pink?

What comes around, goes around.  I know I’m not the only one obsessed with this color combination.  How do you make blue and green work in your home?

    As much as I have always wanted to, I have never been able to get any room in my house to look anything anywhere near as put together as any of those…. *sigh*

    Very soothing colors. I felt calmer just looking at the pictures. Imagine how I would feel if my rooms felt that calm. I agree with Jamie, my home does not look that put together. I didn’t see a single Fisher Price or Little Tykes toys peaking from under the sofas! *double sigh*

    You make me laugh ‘cos I was obsessed with sunny yellows and pale grassy greens at the start of our summer here in Australia! Now it’s turning colder and I am getting into bright reds and oranges with intensity of colour..isn’t it funny how the seasons really impact us colourwise.

    Earthy blues, greens & browns are my favorite! Maybe you can help me with my living room dilemma… I have a beige sectional, with muted blue & avocado green pillows, we have brown curtains (for now) & all our furniture is espresso colored wood. What color should I do the walls? Just an accent wall of green? Or a nice vibrant medium peacock blue? Im so torn!!

    I’ve always been a big fan of blue and green paired together! Back then,any time I wanted to go with that in decoration, it seemed not appropriate. Thanks to you Kristie, now I can go with those two colors confidently! :)
