Delighful Discoveries - Blue and Green Bliss 10.21.10

I know you could probably never guess it by looking at my blog, but my forever absolute favorite color combination is blue and green. Has been for as long as I can remember and probably will be til the day I take my last breath. I know, I know... how could that be my favorite combination when my favorite color is purple. Alas, when it comes to color, for me, purple is more of a stand-alone color, while blue and green look astounding together.

When I finally got my own room as a teenager, I had the opportunity to repaint it in any colors I wanted. I ended up with royal blue walls and deep lime green trim and accents. The day of my first wedding, the photographer walked in my room and just said "wow... bright colors..." I was a bit worried until he added, "they're going to be AMAZING for the photos!" Whew... and they were. While I don't have any room done in this color scheme right now, I'd love to have a sunroom done in white wicker furniture with bright blues and greens scattered throughout. I think those colors just look so fresh, and clean, and earthy, and airy. Hmmm... earth and air... Considering our planet appears blue and green from space, perhaps it's just a reflection of my deep connection to Gaia that I love this combination so!

I've pulled several pieces from my shop for this feature, and added a whole bunch of wonderfully blue and green delights from some other fabulous shops as well. I hope you enjoy my version of this blue and green bliss!
