Look at that. Just LOOK at it.
What a cute couple. Red/light blue has to be my favorite color combination in the whole world.
I've always been drawn to the drama and impact of a vibrant red, but also to the ethereal innocence of pale blues. But TOGETHER?
Together they are unstoppable.
It's like chocolate covered pretzels, or salted caramels. Sweet, but with a bite (and dangerously addictive...). I also love how nostalgic and almost retro they look together. It's even better when you throw a litle bit of pale beige or ivory in there. Reminds me a little of old, cross-processed photographs...
...Or of red balloons floating around in the sky.
I seriously can't get enough of these colors together. The other day I was pawing through my dresser looking for a particular shirt, and couldn't help but notice a distressing (but purdy) pattern emerging.
|This is far from all of it. I have a pair of red Converse high tops that I absentmindedly threaded with light blue laces, among many other matchy things.|
See that? I love it, and it scares me to death. It's not just clothes either. I've been picking out paint chips for my room. Guess what? Red and blue. I could bombard you with other examples like how my favorite beach towel is red and powder blue, or how I bought a tin of tea because the packaging was an attractive combination of crimson and turquoise, or how my ipod is red with blue headphones, but I will spare you the monotony. Seriously, I could go on about this forever.
Also, you should know that I am very enthusiastic about ANY particularly pretty, interesting or vibrant color. Color is one of the first things I notice when I see a picture, walk into a room, or even when I look at a person. But this is different. This is not just enthusiasm.
INFATUATION! (I wanted to say SPARTA there, but I didn't because that would just ruin the mood.)
I'm kind of afraid that one day my whole life will have a color scheme and I'll be too darn happy and color-obsessed to care. Oh well. Life is too short to worry about stuff like that, right?
I've got to go make a cup of tea in my favorite red and blue mug, but y'all come back now, ya hear?
See you later. :)
