A Recipe for Summer Smiles

What is no longer green and yet not quite blue? The color of July is a transitional hue on the color wheel that melds the freshness of green with the watery depths of blue.

Is it bluish green or greenish blue?

Turquoise or teal?

Aqua or aquamarine?

IMG_1242 Whatever the name, July marks that time of the year we can all enjoy. The month of longer days, vacations and relaxation, July is represented by the artful blending of tranquil green and calming blue.

Imagine the color of calm water as the sand below adds a golden tone. The blue bends slightly toward green to reflect this summery hue. One of my most memorable aqua sightings is in the wake of a ship cutting through the depths. The foamy rush of trailing water produces a magnificent blue green color I’ve seen nowhere else.

Green and blue, two universally favored colors, combine for this favorite time of year.  It’s no surprise this greenish bluish combination is universally becoming on anyone who wears it.

Since color is an efficient barometer to predict our feelings, being surrounded by a hue that creates feelings of well being is necessarily reflected in your face.

Are you smiling now?

“More varied than any landscape was the landscape in the sky, with islands of gold and silver, peninsulas of apricot and rose against a background of many shades of turquoise and azure.”  Cecil Beaton
