i’ve had a long love affair with the color blue. i love all shades of blue. blue makes me happy and i think it goes with everything. and there are times i have crushes, and right now i have a color crush on cobalt. 

cobalt adds so much to a room, whether it’s in a graphic fabric, an abstract piece of art, or even a piece for furniture. it instantly make a room feel cool. same is true with adding cobalt to an outfit. a cobalt sweater, jacket or accessory can make any outfit chic, and it feels cool.

cobalt was my color choice for the holiday house, the boutique hotel i just designed in palm springs/ see the recent domino story here. it’s also one of the newest colors in our mds stripes spring 2017 collection, and cobalt is the color i’m relying on for my spring 2017 henredon high point market set up. more on that soon, but as you can see i think cobalt not only goes with everything, but it’s cool.
