maybe it’s my relatively new life near the beach, but this week’s color story is all about living among the deep blue Mediterranean sea. there are many shades of aquatic blue, ranging from turquoise blues to deep-sea darker hues but 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 Mediterranean white-washed bungalow, or a leisurely sail through their beautiful blue seas, these jewel tones just exude calm, but also often take a dramatic, sometimes stormy turn. here are 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 ode to blue pinboard for more. bon voyage to Mediterranean blue.
