La Tendance Bleu-Vert



These luscious jugs and pots dipped in blue, green, turquoise, mint and pistachio paints are making me long for the summer days and sunshine of Provence (it's still raining and grey in San Francisco! Summer, where are you?) As I sit at my desk wrapped in a scarf and dressed in all black layers and Merrill boots to chase the chill away from our grey day, these images give me a little hope for sunnier days!

Enjoy a little soothing color break...these colors are very easy on the eyes!

Then seeing all these wonderful hot weather blues and greens in Catherine André's Summer 2011 collection made me realize that, yes, blue-green is definitely hot this summer, in France, anyway!

So of course I checked out the fabrics by Pierre Frey, just to be sure...and yes, lots of blue and green in fabrics and wallpapers to be found.

  7. I LOVE the pottery...! The colors! I sometimes color my mesh produce bags ombre green and blues; there is something very soothing about this mix...

  8. All those images are lovely and so refreshing. My favorite are the pots. All of it makes me yearn for warmer weather, even here in Los Angeles. It's been unseasonably chilly.

  14. Love the Pierre Frey fabrics. These are the colors I used for my husband's birthday party last night. I served a fish and risotto dish that I learned to make in Paris and a Sancerre that he likes ...pretended we were in Provence. :)

  15. Beautiful colours, they are the sort of colour I gravitate towards in Spring and Summer when I change from all my Winter greys... Have a good week xo
