Land and Sea -Decorating with Blue and Green

Whether thinking of an idyllic seascape or green pastures under brilliant blue skies, there's something about a blue green color combination that stirs our senses and yet calms us with feelings of serenity, purity and rejuvenation. It's easy to understand how this color scheme is oh so comfy in home decor,and no surprise that it's a popular pick for bathrooms and bedrooms.

Designing with blue and green color stories gives me a lot of freedom that's evident everywhere in our collections. You see it in our paint finishes, resins, glass, silk, crystals, all the materials that we use in the manufacturing of our products. So I had a bit of fun scouting our decorative hardware and furnishings and assembled some of my favorites.
