Delightful Discoveries - A Clean Slate 11.06.10

I'm starting off with a clean slate today... a clean slate blue at least! This delightful shade of blue has some greyish undertones giving it a slighty dusty hue and making it the perfect color to "cool" down warm tones or complement other cool shades. I think it creates a stunning and dramatic contrast when paired with black, but you might be surprised at the effect when you mix it with rusts or deep grey greens or even a sandy brown!

Ahhhh... such a relaxing, soothing color... I hope you liked my picks! I know I have my favorites, but I'd love to hear what yours were!

Tomorrow belongs to a color that's called Chocolate (#3) - not quite a brown, not quite an orange, and yet not exactly a rust. Should be interesting! If you have anything in this color you'd love to show off, I still have a couple of spots open and I'll be posting somewhat late in the day, so send them on over! I'd love to see them and I'm sure everyone else would too!

Hope your Saturday was wonderful and that your Sunday is even better :) See ya soon!
