Blue is often related to the feeling of being depressed or sad but it is also a colour that is very relaxing and soothing and if you ask people what their favourite colour is, it is most often blue. People always tell me that blue is my colour because it brings out the blue from my blule green eyes but it has to be a very specific blue. A pale blue or denim blue really does nothing for me except wash me out. My best blues are royal blues and bright blues and turquoise blues.
Other than the sky, blue is difficult to find in nature but I did manage to find a flower that was blue.
According to Wikipedia Citrus Sinensis is as follows: Citrus × sinensis (sometimes written Citrus sinensis), also known as the sweet oranges, is a commonly cultivated family of oranges that includes blood oranges and navel oranges.
I was sure I was looking for a lemony yellow colour but it turns out it’s more orange and can include blood orange.
Nothing says vintage red to me like red roses, hibiscus, old fashioned mums, poinsettias and cardinals. There is no doubt that the interior of this royal bedroom in Amboise and the mini library are both vintage colours.
