Summer Blues

Okay, this is weird. I’ve been planning a Swatchbook of the Week based on hydrangea blues for weeks – inspired by my friend’s bridesmaid bouquets at her wedding, below. Pretty, no?

Bridesmaid Bouquets

And then I took the HomeGoods style quiz and… got exactly the same colors! Spooky. But how could you not love soothing blues and violets? Blue is such an easy color to live with, and I like how the pinky-purple warms it up. Layered on top of each other, they feel sweet and breezy and welcoming. (-Moe)
