Colorful Fridays: robin’s egg blue

February 19, 2010

Today I want to introduce a new series on this blog, Colorful Fridays. So much that we design to be ‘eco-friendly’, ‘green’ or ‘environmental’ is beige or a variation of beige as a reflection of the natural world. However, nature gives us an abundance of color. Just think about spring . . . the intense greens as trees leaf out, the purples of crocuses, yellows of daffodils . . . there is so much color in the world that I think needs to be reflected in sustainable design whether it’s furniture, architecture, interior design, art, or industrial design. So, I’m dedicating fridays to an exploration of color, inspired by nature.

Today, I’m going to explore robin’s egg blue because it’s just one of those colors that is so vibrant, cheerful and cannot be thought of without thinking about spring. And hopefully (fingers crossed) spring isn’t too far around the corner.
