Royal Blue

The wait is over! I couldn’t be happier for new parents Prince William and Kate Middleton who welcomed their baby boy into the world yesterday at 4:24pm London time. Landmarks all across London lit up blue to celebrate the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby boy. All the excitement got me looking up royal blue (what a fitting color for the occasion) everything and I wanted to share some of what caught my eye.

Neon is BIG right now! I was ALL about the neon back in the day! (showing my age. 🙂 There should be a slogan like – “Neon. It’s not just for clothes anymore.” Or maybe it never was just for clothes….. Anyhoo. Neon is all over the interior design world. Don’t believe me? Look –

Oh yes, it’s happening!

The Marriage of Orange and Blue!

Not the first color combo to come to mind I’m sure but I love oranges and blues together! Those 2 colors can be mixed together in so many ways and there are so many shades of each to choose from. Please join me in appreciation! : )
