Everyday Colour – Blue & Green

by Kate on January 16, 2011

Whenever I see blue and green together I hear my Mum’s voice…“Blue and Green shall never be seen, unless there is something in between”.

Blue & Green

There probably is some truth in that saying but not when I am looking at these guys.

Its funny that colour combinations can be treny, or not. I am a huge fan of the old blue and green together.
Have a happy Sunday Kate X.

Maybe that's the something between!

Great colour combination! They are so bright and fun:)

I have never agreed with that saying! They are my 2 favourite colours and ALWAYS look good together! I always think of leaves and blue sky or the shifting colours of the sea. How could you not like blue and green together!

My mother says that too :)

And I listen to her almost as much as you do!

Did they all learn that at mum school?? It's like pink & red, i LOVE that combination. I also patchwork with florals, stripes, ginghams & patterns, big original patchwork faux pas but hell, i love it!! Technically you do have the wood between your blue & green framing it only makes the colours work better!! I still love my blue & green, love Posie

This photo is great, I do love the colors and how you balanced the arrangement.


17 Jackie @ craftonmymind January 17, 2011 at 8:13 pm

I love blue and green together too – so much so that my boys think that the saying is 'blue and green shall never be seen with something in between".

I love blue and green together. Especially when they are soft blues and greens.


19 Karen January 18, 2011 at 8:29 pm

My Nan used to say 'Blue and green shouldn't be seen except with a spot of yellow inbetween'.


20 MsPurrl January 18, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Gorgeous! I grew up listening to that saying, but to me, blue and green are one of the prettiest of colour combinations :)

Sigh, such prettiness.
