ink blue....






growing up, the color of my dad's pen was always the same...in fact, the pen itself was always was the same one; nothing fancy- he's not that kind of guy... but always ink blue.
that color is no longer just reserved for a piece of paper...

Did you get a chance to visit Max & Co when you were in Atlanta? They have an ink blue bedroom on the second floor, with a great picture of an octopus over the bed. I immediately thought of it when reading this post.

These are lovely. I'm starting to fancy the color ink blue. This is a great inspiration page for that! Sweet that you remember such a detail about your dad. It's the little things...

For the longest time I would only use blue ink, it's so much cheerier than black. These days I'm just lucky to find a pen so I'm much less picky.

I used to not be a blue fan, maybe because so many things in life are blue...but now I'm really embracing it. And I'm loving all the graphic prints with this striking hue. Such as the bamboo cross-hatch that's popping up a lot. Interesting post.

Love this dark blue. Things to Inspire is right about their ink blue bedroom - I have picture I took there last week of it that I'm going to post up tomorrow.

I agree with Lauren Jade- I used to not be a blue fan... but it is growing on me. Much more than red. Still do not like red! :)

I've found that ink blue is more and more appealing.

I'm not usually a blue fan, but inky blue is just divine. Especially when combined with liberal amounts of white.

I love your blog!
