Is blue your favourite colour?
I guess it must be, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this post :)
What does the colour blue mean to you or represent?
I like colours in general but blue holds a special place in my heart and it tends to sneak into most of my designs and paintings even if it’s just a tiny brushstroke. Be it a Baby Blue, Indigo or Ultramarine the variety of blue hues is irresistibly alluring.
When I think of blue I tend to dream of tropical places, coastal landscapes, ocean waves, beautiful beaches and blue skies. I think of relaxation, peacefulness and an appreciation for nature.
I can instantly recreate in my mind the sensation of hearing the sea crashing onto a beach and feeling the coastal breeze scented with sea salt. That’s how powerful colours are, they can evoke memories within us.
Below I share some imagery of the SO KLARA designs that carry the element of water, coastal lifestyle and sundrenched beaches. Perhaps you can be taken back to summer vacations once more before fully accepting that Autumn has inevitably arrived.
