Color Pop: Cobalt Blue





Artist Jean Verame uses cobalt to alter the landscape.

Blues are everywhere on this planet. Look up and you see varying gradients of pale to bright blue. It's the top color for businesses and marketing. It relaxes us in spas and in most homes. It is probably the most pleasant widespread color out there in all its varying shades, tints and tones. Perhaps one of the most striking hues of blue is cobalt. Its brightness, especially in glass, is breathtaking and this pop of color in homes is pleasant and just overpowering enough to be fun. It is often associated with peace, spirituality and sincerity. Keep your eyes open for cobalt blue this week and you might see the color blue's fun side.

Blue bottles are the best and have been around for a very long time.



A blue door adds a subtle pop of color to a facade.



Don't be afraid to use cobalt on a wall and pair with a crisp white.



Furniture in cobalt is another way to add color in your home.
