Cornflower Blue

You may know it from your very first box of crayons, and perhaps haven’t thought much of it since. Lovely, simple, and popular in Country Swedish  Styles. 17th century, Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer is associated with his affinity for the hue and preferred to pair it with yellow. Beautifully offsets traditional china patterns, light pastels, and blond woods.

    • Hey Cat, this color is intriguing to me… I tend to prefer warmer tones over cool blues, but I admire anything that makes me think twice about my style preferences 🙂 Thanks for interacting with my blog- I really enjoy hearing your thoughts!
