Blue on Blue

Sky, cerulean, baby or navy, this season being blue makes us smile.


Whether it’s a perfect length of icy blue grosgrain ribbon or a cake enrobed in a sheath of blue fondant, blue is the opposite of sad. The great outdoors have always been the original Pinterest or inspiration board; we only need to turn our gaze skyward to find new ideas. From the deep tones of indigo or navy to pale robin’s egg, blue can transform any room, piece of fabric or even dessert into something scrumptious. As a highlight color, blue is a smash hit – check out the objets de bleu we’ve chosen that would make any kitchen, living room or dining room happy.
