Blue & Green should always be seen!

Currently working on 3 interior design projects 
with wallpaper in them,
and while each house is quite astonishingly different,
there is no shortage of styles of this fabulous product.
One of the projects has a blue and green colour scheme,
so I have been hunting for suitable papers.
These stunning wallpapers are by Publisher Textiles,
and are hand made in Australia.
They have an almost Art Nouveau feel to them.
And this glorious paper, Wistaria by Jocelyn Warner,
is a contender too - it is so very luscious.
Sort of a modern twist on the English country style.
(If I use this one, I will bring in green through baskets of lime green 
ferns which would be a fun contrast.)
And all of this got me thinking just how sublimely 
these 2 colours make a balanced combination, 
in clothes & accessories...

...in interiors...
...in vintage clothes...
(these are from the 1950s and are from Mrs Press)...
...or even in floral arrangements.

 Whether pale or bright, 
this combination works.
Pale grass green with navy blue/
emerald green with pale sky blue. 
No matter which tones, 
they are always a lively and refreshing burst of happiness. 


  1. I love blue and green together! The wallpapers are divine, Good luck! x

  2. Happy New Year Virginia...I know January is almost over but I'm only lurching into 2012 now! Love blue and green too but that Jocelyn Warner paper is very special. Looks like a lovely project. Annie x.

  3. Absolutely stunning colour combination! The wallpapers look so beautiful, as do the clothing pieces! Ahhh such a perfect palette for Spring as well...


  4. I love blue and green, but I am obsessed with the blue Wisteria paper...stunning!!

  5. Agree completely - they look fabulous together as demonstrated by your beautiful selection of images. I am going to add some Kelly green to my blue and white to break it up a bit and some pink in another room. Absolutely adore that Warner wisteria wallpaper, wouldn't it make a wonderful fabric for an evening dress!

  6. Soo exciting Virginia - love the wisteria wallpaper - absolutely stunning:)
    Have a great sunshiny week sweets,

  7. A glorious colour combo, it always works...I love all of your choices, just divine!

  8. I just love that wisteria wallpaper, might have to try and obtain some for my new house bedroom, love your ideas and definitley go for the blue and green.

  9. Virginia,
    this is one of the most beautiful and refreshing combinations ever, and it`s all about summer.
    Fabulous selection.
    Wish you a special day.

  10. Blue and green should ne'er be seen except upon a gypsy queen is the phrase I learned. For me the most beautiful combination of the two colors is in a plumbago bush but that probably has more to do with the heavenly blue of the flower against the slightly dark green of the leaf. Otherwise, not a combination I gravitate to, except for the kitchen which is stunning.

  11. Love this combination! The result is so fresh and uplifting!

  12. What a lovely post! The colours of nature always work together and the pop of the green ferns against one of those papers would be divine.
    I really love that wonderful printed vintage piece also.

    Enjoyed dropping by as usual.

  13. The wallpapers are absolutely gorgeous particularly the first and fourth one. I also love the second last dress. It's beautiful, stylish and unique all at once!
