Keeping Cool with Green and Blue


When it comes to keeping cool on hot summer days, I can't help but be drawn to these crisp and cool colour combinations.   It's no secret green is my favorite colour-but when paired with blue,  greens take on a whole new personality.  The two colours that come together most often in nature are lively, and energetic.   I can't help but feel recharged and ready to enjoy my day.
