Colour Cocktail: Cerulean Blue and Candy Yellow

Picture the scene: sunlight is pouring through your balcony doors, the chiffon curtains are billowing in the gentle breeze and the roll of cerulean blue waves sound through your apartment with comforting regularity. The brilliant white walls of your sea-view living room are like a prism of perfection to the rays of sunshine that beat down with warm abandon. Dancing around the room your loyal rays of sunshine ache for a colourful partner to accompany them during the long summer days. All they ask in return for their uplifting warmth is a splash of yellow stripes, or a familiar throw in cerulean blue to lift their spirits and complete the perfect summertime scheme.

  4. You really do have a way with words, I can envisage that beach house like I was there right now waiting for my glass of bubbly (I wish!)

  5. I love these colors together. I just designed a color board for my design drafting class and used these colors for their office/den. So fun! And what a peaceful setting you described (:

  9. Hard to be cranky in these rooms!

    Pretty close match to the 2 only colors in the Swedish flag. I am already convinced you have a some viking blood in your DNA.

    Happy weekend to you, Will.

    Mom - there is a bit of a Swedish colour theme going on here, you are right! xo

  14. I just found your blog and it's so great! I fiddle about on my blog from time to time too (although i'm a bit slack and my layout skillz are nowhere near as good as yours!). I just posted something on blues and yellows this morning, funnily enough!
