More blues…

If there is a season for blue, summer is it. Spanning art and fashion to interiors here are more blues of all shades and all styles.  There’s no rhyme or reason to the order of these pictures and hopefully there’s a little something for everyone…

The Jason Martin painting is incredible not to mention the rugs in the story with it! The entire color palette is right up my alley!
Another great post!

Neutral/Light blue work well but also a bold - striking blue works well and stands out thanks for these!
