Loving Cobalt

I picked up the cutest cobalt blue peep toe booties. I'm smitten with them and can't wait to wear them when weather permits. It would seem they inspired a new appreciation of their shade in design... let's investigate, shall we? xo

Anzu said...

Gorgeous intensity of colour - I especially love the lamp bases. I also love those medieval paintings with the really intense blue and I read recently that the paint in those days was actually made from ground lapis lazuli!

I'm with Style Scout, that piece of artwork is really great. I don't think people give credit to the arts much.
I am a novice decorator by day and a singer here in Memphis by night. We have great art here and people pack out the restaurants and night life, but fizzle when it comes to art galleries here. People either get it or don't, not much by the way of in-between. I like your blog, just found it, hope you post again soon.
