True Blue

January 1, 2010

Lots of comments on my October 2nd “2010 Color of the Year” post from people who love the color blue.  Blue has been acknowledged as the most popular color for decades and there’s a reason for the phrase “true blue”.  Blue personality traits include being optimistic, empathetic, flexible, idealistic, tranquil, patient, devoted. Blues are  natural mothers and are often associated with Florence Nightingale. I say “blues” meaning people whose name carries the “blue vibration”. (To find out your personal color vibration, see the Color Numerology article in House Beautiful.)

The phrase “true blue” is also how I would describe my loyal and wonderful clients!  I discovered a thread on the GardenWeb forums “Comparison of Behr (Home Depot) and Ellen Kennon paint” and was thrilled to read such glowing testimonials (thank you,  thank you, thank you!) about our paints, as well as this “Lichen” bedroom, another example of our chameleon-like blues.

"Lichen" walls shift from blue, to green to gray

Blue is known for being calming, but I also love a vibrant cobalt blue. I created Mykonos Blue for artist Hunt Slonem‘s exhibit at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans (photos of exhibit & CBS Sunday Morning segment on our “Photos & Reviews” page.However, it looks even better in a small sitting room at Lakeside Plantation:

"Mykonos Blue" both energizes and calms

“I am amazed how much more I like the EK paint. The EK paint has a luminous quality; it reminds me of pointillism artwork (where dots of many colors give an impression of an overall color)”

Thanks to wonderful clients like her, we have never advertised!
