maybe it’s my current accessibility to the sea, but this week’s color story is all about living the life aquatic (one of my favorite wes anderson films, too, btw). there are many shades of aquatic, ranging from turquoise blues to deep-sea darker hues and they’re all quite soothing, and sometimes they even feel a little exotic to me. like a trip to a foreign port, an afternoon in a Moroccan riad, or a sail through the Mediterranean, these blue jewel tones just exude calm, but also often take a dramatic, sometimes stormy turn. here’s a few of my favorite blue hues and some decor accessories to get you there — and if you like this vibe, you might like to check out my aqualand pinboard for more. bon voyage to the life aquatic.
