Why it's Best to be Blue

My favorite color is blue.

Maybe my fondness for this color is because it has the power to evoke so many different feelings and can change hats in various contexts. It can be energizing, calm, fun, cool, earthy, elegant, or just plain pretty.

Maybe it's because this color sings when paired with yellows, greens, or pinks.

Or maybe it's because of it's versatility- it works as a strong accent color or as a soft neutral.

Enough of me talking it up, let these photos convince you themselves...

Coley, I could not agree more! Blue is my favorite color by fare and love just about any shade of it. Turquoise is my favorite shade though. Blues are so calming and remind me of the ocean, which I love. Great pictures! I love House of Turquoise as well! It's such an inspiring website!

I am loving all these rooms, they are beautiful! I especially love the 2nd and 3rd rooms. I like the light blue wall behind the dishes and the big white couch with the bright blue chairs!

LOVING these pins!! Blue is also my fav color - navy is my absolute fav shade, but I love all hues of blue :)

I actually have a couch that is light blue, pretty much the same color as the second picture.

Thanks for visiting my blog, yours is super cute!

Coley, I love these pictures! You have the same taste as me. If I could magically turn all of those photos into my home, I would be in bliss! I love shades of blue - it's always so refreshing, light, and clean.

I LOVE kelly green. Probably initially because it's an Irish color. But I love it's happy preppy vibe. Great blog you have, happy to be a new follower. Thanks for stopping by :)

I love that funky blue chandelier..so quirky and fun but stylish. My favorite color is red because it's rich and romantic, and I love earthy browns too.

Any shade of blue because it's so soothing and reminds me of the beach :) Most of our house is this color, or if not the wall color then accents in this color.

I love that bathroom inspiration pic!!
