much like its cool cousin green, pale aquamarine blue, and deeper darker shades of teal and turquoise are popping up all over the place. it’s a real colorfest and a celebration of all kinds of blue hues out there, so you may want to add a dash of your own if you like this week’s color story. i’m not sure i can do a ton of blue because it’s not my color palette du jour (hello, black & white forever), but i know that i certainly admire it from afar and it’s a color that says ‘holiday’ to me. there’s nothing quite like a splash of aquamarine to remind you of far-off destinations and shorelines dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored villages — like the Mediterranean sea, or perhaps capri and the amalfi coast to get specific. there’s definitely a somewhat european feel to a few of these rooms, and they’re beckoning me to take a trip abroad. soon, i swear!
