Blue (and orange) Monday

You may or may not recall that I'm attempting a lounge re-do. On a very small scale of course. It took many more coats of paint than I anticipated, even with the priming but, we now have ever so slightly off white walls. The color is called 'Twinkle Twinkle'... how could I resist when it is the song I have sung to Pony Girl nearly every night for the past two years? An eco-friendly paint was used of course.
And now with the walls a blank and neutral canvas, I can dream of what colors I would like to add to the room. Lately I have been inspired by orange and blue, those two complimentary colors have been making me feel happy and lively. So after flipping through flickr, I have found some very happy inspiration that I thought I would share with you!

I always enjoy your amazing sense of color.

Well if you can replicate even a smidge of the joy that your mosaic evokes in your 're-do' then I'll be impressed. So gorgeous. I forget about orange...

very pretty :) Living in close proximity to bronco nation we are surrounded by blue and orange (I like your picks much better).

As a yote I accidentally pick purple and gold a lot but am very retro and love lime green and orange :)

It is so nice to get the painting done and get on with the fun stuff. I love orange all of a sudden, and would be happy, happy to sew all day with that orange machine. My daughter just found a delicious orange german typewriter at a shop on 13th and Hawthorne, wouldn't something like that look great in your new room?

Gorgeous combinations. Good luck dreaming up your redo. Can't wait to see the result!

Such cheerful colours. I'm feeling a bit in the mood for orange too, as I'm clearing out all my red, bit by bit, as the weather gets warmer. I don't seem to need the red in spring and summer, and orange is just as cheerful! I can't wait to see what you do with the room.
