The Weekend Dish: Yves Klein Blue

by

What are you up to this weekend friends?

Sarah and I are meeting to discuss an exciting new business venture (details in due time) and I am still crafting for my wedding (ditto)!

Oprah declared Yves Klein Blue the hot color for this year, though I think this vibrant and sophisticated pigment is always in vogue.

The colors and textures of this room inspired my wedding colors/materials palette of IKB, white, natural linen and wood and then I added red as a bright accent color.

Thanks to my personal art historian Mary I know how this color got it’s name.

Drew painted a wall in our bedroom this color last year as a surprise for me one weekend when I was away!

I referenced it a few weeks past as it’s a great color to liven up the traditional “fall” palette of table decor. Hope this color inspires you too.
