Cobalt is coming on strong

Cobalt Blue is the ´in´ color this year.
Cobalt Blue is the 'in' color this year.

Have you noticed we’re in a blue period?  Blues are an important and popular mainstay in design, mostly for its calm, tranquil effect on us.  But cobalt blue, as bold as this, is a more confident jolt of color that is calling your name this coming season and beyond.

The strength of character cobalt displays is a great playmate with many other colors; white, black, neutrals and primaries alike.  Vincent Van Gogh declared, ”Cobalt is a divine colour and there is nothing so beautiful for putting atmosphere around things...”

French artist Yves Klein created a sensual, deep blue reminiscent of lapis lazuli, forever known as International Klein Blue. C2 Paint is customizing a perfect match, should you be interested.

It is daring, it is dominant, it is dazzling!  Which, coincidentally, is one of the colors included in Pantone’s picks for the 2014 color forecast.  You’ll be seeing a lot of it because we’re on a blue streak!
