aqua love affair

There are those colors that I come back to time and time again--that no matter what the season, occasion, my mood or the room that I always love. Aqua just makes me swoon (I am not sure I used that word before I started blogging!) and I can't imagine that it is one I will ever grow tired of.

And with that have a lovely Monday!

Indeed you do love Jade! I think you did another 'Jade inspired' post recently, although I could be mistaken. You have such a great eye for beautiful things. I would never have thought of Jade as a favourite shade, but now I think it's lovely, so chic. Thanks to your images, lovely lovely

I'm really coming around to aqua - these photos make me like it even more. I love those french doors - the aqua is so unexpected.

There's something so soothing about this colour. Always reminds me of my favourite place to be - by the the ocean :)

I was thinking the same thing yesterday, as I pulled out my aqua colored sheets. I really love aqua and red.
Beautiful pics! I love reading your blog.

I'm with you: definitely swoon-worthy.

That living room in the middle of this set is to die for: high ceiling with floor to ceiling windows to maximize natural light, a perfect mix of natural wood and exposed beams with cozy fabrics, and unique, strategically placed pieces like the empty aqua jars. I’m in love…

P.S. I’m currently working diligently to master a Christmas d├ęcor palette of aqua, white, silver, and black.

Thank you for your inspirational and versatile blog! Do you think it would be horrible to pair aqua/jade/turqoise with strawberry pink? It happened me accidentally. First I didn't like it but then I thought "why not?"
