Beachside Blogging

Yes, I am still in Thailand and blogging beachside! (Sorry - I hope this does not sound like bragging to you poor folks in the snowy Northeast!) I am just obsessed with the varying shades of turquoise, cyan, aqua, azure, teal, blue-gray, sky, denim and cerulean blue. So as a continuation of yesterday's thoughts on color inspiration, here a few picks for favorite blues from top designers for House Beautiful
Olympic Paints Aqua Chiffon A58-3, selected by designer Tina McHenry

 Oceanside by Sherwin-Williams, #SW 6496 from Jackie Jordan
 
Glidden Paint, Clear Blue Sky GLB15 from Krim Dansinger

Pantone Turquoise 15-5519 TPX from Leatrice Eisman

Sea Kiss 5005-9C from Sue Kim

So even if you feel far from the beach - don't be afraid to let color brighten your interior! Even British Prime Minister Winston Churchill recognized the positive effects of color on our moods . . . 
"I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."
Winston Churchill 1874-1965
