I added something new to the blog yesterday, a color of the month photo gallery! You will find it along the right hand side of the blog under recent posts. I will be posting my color pick on the first day of each month. This month I chose the cool, crisp shade of Cyan!
"Cyan (/ˈsaɪ.ən/ or /ˈsaɪ.æn/) is a greenish-blue color. Its name is derived from the Ancient Greek κυανός, transliterated kýanos, meaning "dark blue". It was formerly known as "cyan blue" or cyan-blue and its first recorded use of as a color name in English was in 1879. Further origins of the color name can be traced back to a dye produced from the cornflower (Centaurea cyanus). There are 11 glorious blues in the below photo by @Poppytalk.
CYAN IN MY DESIGNS
I will always always choose blues/greens if given the opporunity; the accents all throughout my house are of various shades of blues/aquas/turquoises . So, when designing freely, you'll most likely see a lot of crisp, clean and "simple" blues and greens. My designs below are just a few exmaples.
And a quick, funny VIDEO concerning cerulean blue and the fashion industry, I thought it was appropriate for this post even though it is a different shade of blue! Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of the color of the month for February, CYAN BLUE!
