French blues remind me of the sea and the sky. Natural and cool, these blues associated with water can feel warm for a cool color. Helping one recall days on the beach gazing at a lake or sea and the clear blue sky. Relaxing and easy they can be used to create a casual or elegant space depending on how you use them. Paired with a sunny yellow they are all about the sunny, happy vibe. When you use them with liberal amounts of white, a classic and elegant look can be achieved.
