In the Mood: February 2016

The past several days have been unseasonably warm in Houston. With temperatures in the mid-80s and sunny skies, it made for absolutely glorious weather over the weekend. We’re supposed to get a cold front tomorrow, but the warmer temperatures have me ready for spring! I’ve also noticed myself gravitating towards pale blue lately–a color I associate with spring– when I spend time on Pinterest. It isn’t usually a color that I use much, but I can’t deny how beautiful and timeless it is. We are presenting the design for a client project in a few days and I’ve used pale blue as the main color in the client’s bedroom. They wanted something classic and soothing, so I think it will definitely fit the bill. While it is technically still winter, I am sure we are all looking forward to spring and this particular shade of blue seems perfectly representative of both seasons. Don’t you agree?

  2. Paloma you must love Twombly’s art as much as I do!
    This blue is so perfect, not too pale and enough saturated color to make a statement!

  3. Hi Paloma
    Pale blue must be one of my favourite colours as I have a lot of it in my home, along with a collection of blue and white china so I especially love your post today.
    I hope that Spring is beautiful in your part of the world, I was delighted to see early blossom just coming into bloom over here,whilst walking on the weekend

  4. I loved all of this blue theme! Where is the floral coat from? I have looked everywhere for it, but to no avail.
