Color Therapy: Peacock Blue

Oh how I love this gorgeous color! Peacock Blue is defined as "a shade of blue tinged with green." Although this color is strong and bold, it never seems to overwhelm a space. I'm working on a client's master bedroom and we decided to throw in a punch of Peacock Blue to the otherwise neutral color palette. We're just painting a small accent wall, but the unexpected pop of color will be a nice surprise. Take a look at all of the different ways this color can be incorporated into your decor - whether you're going for a dramatic look or something more subtle, Peacock Blue is versatile and timeless. How do you  feel about this color?! *** With that, I'm signing off and want to wish you a very happy Friday and a lovely weekend! xoxo - Julie
