" Design Porter: COLOR STORIES Cobalt Blue


Cobalt Blue is said to be a man's favorite color.  Probably has something to do with blue eyes.  It is a very versatile color often used in the coloring of ceramics - as in Asian blue and white pieces.  It's a very popular color enjoyed by 65% of the population, the most often collected ceramic or chinaware is that of blue and white.

Here are my favorite room settings using Cobalt Blue.  The color is so crisp and fresh and can be used as the main color or hold it's own as an accent color.
