We are feeling a little blue today on My Whimsy Ways but don’t worry its just the colour!!

This is a new fortnightly blog post on all things colours and how to use the colour when styling your event. So first in the colour series we are looking at Olympian Blue.

This is one of the Pantone Autumn 2012 colours and blue in all forms is tipped to be a big colour of 2013 in events & weddings.

Although blue is usually associated as a ‘cold’ colour I think Olympian blue is quite a warm rich colour that will definitely liven up any event & wedding decor.  It is also a rather versatile colour as it can be put with a variety of colours either as the main colour on the scheme or it would fit in perfectly as an accent.

My favourite colours to style Olympian blue with are the above. I love the contrast between the two striking colours and the muted tones of rose and rhapsody. These colours mixed together could create an amazing vintage/rustic theme.

I have created a mood board to show you how Olympian Blue can be incorporated into your event:



So is blue for you?
