Color Inspiration: Robin's Egg Blue

Color Inspiration: Robin's Egg Blue

We've been obsessed with Robin's Egg Blue ever since we saw this cheerfully painted dresser (below right) in our friend Clara's bedroom. Robin's Egg Blue is one of those colors, that as an accent goes with any color scheme. It's great to perk up those winter blahs, and as a reminder that spring is just around the corner — we hope! We've rounded up some more robins egg and teal blue photos after the jump...

Robin's egg blue is one of those colors thats not exactly defined. To us, and in the Crayola box, its its a blue with a bit of green in it (according to Crayola, there's an equal amount of both). This time of year especially, it reflects a bit of nature inside, while there's still so much gray outside.

We've always loved the lighter shades, but this winter we're really drawn to the deeper, more saturated hues like Clara's dresser (which she painted in Finer Paints of Europe 176-AR17).
