monday color combo

i hope you all had a fabulous easter and didn't o.d. on too many reese-y eggs, cadbury eggs, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs or deviled eggs. i sure did. it's another rainy monday here in atlanta. blech! so monday's color combo for those of you enduring nasty weather today should be a welcome one. it's pink and blue!! careful though, pink and blue can be tricky. you have to get the hues right and the doses. the cobalts and fuschias, the turquoises and hot pinks or magentas are my favorite, these are a bit more modern. whether in your home or in a glass with an umbrella or on a beach at sunset, pink and blue can be a lovely combination.
