our aquatic earth
good morning and happy tuesday everyone.
it’s a crazy day from what’s on the news. i hope you’re safe and sound and for those who are facing difficult times due to mother nature, please know we are all praying for you.
it’s earth that inspired my color choice to explore today. she’s so full of shades and tones it’s hard to pinpoint something specific but i’m finally honing in on one in particular: aqua.
(38702878020678901) it is somewhere between turquoise and celadon and i had to try not to cross the lines. not sure how i did, you can be the judge!
(bohemianwornest) even though it’s a color found so much in nature, it can sometimes be a little extreme and almost gaudy
(38702878020676243) but then again, one shade down it’s neutral, like so many we’ve explored over the past few days.
(38702878020680243) i love to see it in subtle tones on furniture like the little sofa.
(38702878020678983) and it’s got a dreamy quality in glass
(38702878020678973) adds a pick me up to any vignette (here almost crossing the turquoise line, maybe it’s both)?
(38702878020678783) it’s great in a bath
(38702878020687776) or in a dose of glass tiles
(38702878020679943 i keep coming back to nature to see where the color wheel blends
(38702878020679979) i find it soothing and love to see it on walls
(dianeburn.com) again, a color that’s timeless whether it’s used in a cottage or a baroque chateau
(38702878020680065) aqua velvet
(38702878020678907) it’s a bold color but kind of fun to use in unusual ways. here someone got creative with an ombre
and a gorgeous concrete floor
(madebygirl) once you choose your palette
the sky’s the limit! hope you have a fabulous day and if you’re using aqua let us know where!
