Blue Monday

Even though red seems to be grabbing all the headlines lately, I’ve been noticing a lot of blue on and off the runway and in the home.  I absolutely love Todd Alexander Romano‘s new blue apartment that was featured in the February issue of Architectural Digest with its pops of citron, chartreuse and red.  I also noticed these same color combinations in many fashion photos from New York, London and Milan.  Makes me want to buy something blue today!

    On my latest post on Armani recent runaway in Milan there is a blue purse to die for…you should add it here.

    What beautiful blue! Especially great to brighten chilly winter days here in Chicago and anywhere else. Makes me want to buy something blue today too!

    That second photograph is so beautiful (I love the home features too)…blue + chartreuse is a favourite combination for me.

    I love blue, always have and always will. That first picture is GORGEOUS..so luxurious…and love the 2nd pic of the chartreuse with the cobalt blue..stunning combination. To me blue will always be “in”.

    I adore the blue fur and the blue decor. So chic.

    I love this post! Citron and cobalt are 2 of my favorite colors, and while I’ve seen them together before in Todd’s apartment, I love the fashion ideas!

    Heather, after reading the new Matchbook magazine it’s occurred to me that you’re a style setter these days not just a blogger. In Matchbook, 0ne of my favourite designers, Chris Benz, mentions that he loves your blog. Congratulations, Amber

    I agree…blue is the new black…navy…in fashion and home decor …can handle the traditional as well as modern esthetic…k

    Yes blue particularly this shade Todd Romano has chosen, is big! Midnight blue, cobalt, through to electric Yves Klein and beyond is really happening. I blogged this one recently and it has been so popular!
    I love your wonderful inclusion of blue fashion imagery to compliment the interior!

    Love these posts of yours. You have a great eye for pulling together all these images on a theme!

    Yes…These blogs are always a thrill and a little lift to the day and week…lust like ice cream…

    Another beautiful post, like the blue skies on an awesome bluebird day. Who makes the lovely clutch everyone is carrying ?

    So glad you all enjoyed the blue post. I LOVE Todd Romano’s new apartment and just had to post it.

    PVS12- the blue clutch is by Celine.

    Just linked to your site from the 100 must read blogs by women list!! So glad to have clicked on you 🙂

    I’ve just browsed your site and some of your posts and love what you do!

    This is a great post showcasing blue. I actually bought these fabulous blue suede pumps a couple months ago that look a lot like the ones in the photo…I get so many compliments anytime I wear them since they are such an eye catching statement piece!

    Looking forward to keeping up with you now.

    What a refreshing dose of “blue”. I have been very much on a red and pink kick this past year, but your post reminded me that my previous love affair was with all things cerulean. Thanks!

    I love this blue. Glam and moody all at the same time. Love those first two photos and Gucci’s show for fall.
