monday color combo

in my research for this combo (which was a request from vicky dar over at room service decorating 101), i learned that it's some kind of taboo to use these colors together. in great britain in any case. something about " blue and green, never be seen", or "blue and green, only on the queen". poppycock, i say!! i wasn't a fan of this combo before i did this post. not b/c i thought it was heinous...i just didn't really have an opinion of it. a take it or leave it kind of thing. not so anymore, i found myself wanting more! as you can tell by the amount of blue and green i found. i just couldn't stop. it's so pretty. so calming. so fresh and happy. like a fresh cut grass and blue summer sky. it seems to work best for me in a country style setting. but that's not to say that the vibrant miami house of doug meyer doesn't turn it out either...so anyway...happy monday!!!

Very nice! I'm totally going for the Moroccan themed tiled tub nook!

You had me at the 3rd photo with that tiled bathroom.

The photo of that flower is amazing as well. Blew me away.

P.S...thanks so much for naming the honeysuckle on my blog. It was killing me not to know.

Proof that it can be done! I especially like it in the more saturated tones--really juicy, deep jewel shades. Sweet!

Methinks this is a winning combo, Jenny! You have put together a stellar collection of examples. Thanks and have a great week!

Great examples ! I only like blue when it is paired with green, I guess that is why I was so aware of this wonderful combo. Thanks for not letting me miss it. xoxoxox
