Trendspotting : Deep Blue Green

Is it blue? Is it green? It’s a little bit of both, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

I love that more deep and dramatic colors, like deep blue green, are coming onto the scene. But no worries for those of you who can’t get enough of the light and bright colors that are still hella popular.

Deep blue green pairs just as well with peachy pink, ivory, and mint as it does with other deep and luscious hues like indigo, emerald green, and plummy purple (more on this soon). And I’m totally excited by the idea of deep blue green paired with neon pinks and yellows – gorgeous! Plus, it pairs so beautifully with the ultra popular metallics, especially gold and copper. Seriously, what’s not to love about this rich, luxe color?!

I cannot wait to see what’s in store for this luscious hue in 2016. Deep blue green is versatile, it’s dramatic, and it plays so well with other on trend colors that I think it’ll be popping up in plenty of places in the coming year.

    I am trying to find the original source of the 3rd photo showing the abstract painting. I love it and have Shadow in my living room.

    Will – I didn’t realize that the original link for the Kostadina Nacheva abstract painting was no longer active. I just updated it to point to Kostadina’s website. It looks like the title of the artwork featured above is Nocturne : Woodland. Hope this helps!
