Early mornings are required to be spent outside. There’s much to see from the day before. I love blue this time of year when it’s so hot outdoors. After spending time watering I like to cool off inside with blue around me. Blue is always the color I turn to in the summer to cool off. The brighter the blue the more intense the cool. It can be as simple as a vignette with a blue and white dinner plate and fresh flowers. The magenta flowers turn up the intensity of the blue. The blue hydrangeas cool things down even more.
You don’t have to use a lot of new things to visually cool your home down. I love blue plates out and love to pair them with colors that intensify the hue.
Fortunately my wallpaper in the dining room has a rich blue included. But to tell you the truth I wouldn’t let anything stand in the way of blue in the summer.
Vintage glasses hold the hydrangeas. The lavender lamp bought so many years past. Magenta carnations paired with another flower from the local chain store.
Love those sweet dahlias!
Wisteria in June. After it was cut back, we gained some blooms.
They look so different according to the time of day and light.
I know neutrals are popular but the green on my buffet helps the blue stand out more.
