HYDRANGEA BLUE

I have a serious new crush on a color I'm calling hydrangea blue. You'll be seeing lots of it in my apartment paired with bright white and classic navy. It's a combination I can't seem to get enough of right now! Here are a few examples of the color I'm talking about...

What would you call it? As you know hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers so I think I'll stick with that. What's one color you're obsessing over right now?

I love this color too! I always thought of it as cornflower because it was my sister's wedding color and the bridesmaid dresses were called cornflower. Hydrangeas were her flower, so I definitely think that fits too!
I'm currently loving camel. I know it's neutral, but I usually wear a lot of color, so I'm kinda loving neutrals at the moment!

Mackenzie, I love this color as well! I usually call it Carolina blue but as hydrangea's are one of my favorite flowers as well, I'll go with hydrangea blue! It's a great color for you and would look great in your white walled studio apartment!
Since, winter is so grey and dreary I'm drawn to yellow/mustard and bright pink right now!

I adore this color of blue- hydrangea blue seems like a very fitting name to me! And now I'm seriously coveting that Coach swingpack!

i have always wanted to paint a room this color. all of my things are white, grey and navy and i think it would be the perfect pop of color to compliment it. i love having blue walls. i have also been loving red and kelly green lately.

I've heard it called cornflower or periwinkle, but I definitely like hydrangea blue better! I think I might just need to get that needlepoint cuff!

Have you seen this bag in Mackenzie Blue? Not that I'd ever spend $1900 on a bag, but it sure is pretty.
