Inspiration: Monaco Blue


All of the colors from Pantone’s spring 2013 color report are pretty, so I wanted to feature more than just the color of the year, emerald. This week, I made an inspiration collage for monaco blue. Monaco blue is like a mix between navy and cobalt. I like it because like navy, it’s really versatile, but like cobalt, it’s vibrant. Here are some pictures of the lovely color I gathered from around the web. Click the collage for a larger view.

I love this color paired with orange, green, cobalt, camel, or just white. I also really like how it looks with black and white patterns (see striped tee and polka dotted shorts above).

I plan to do collages for more of the spring 2013 colors in coming weeks. Take a look at them here and let me know in the comments if there’s one of those colors in particular you’d like me to feature. I’d love your input! 🙂
