cross-point summer stitching – Blue & Yellow

Blue & Yellow

Portugese blue&yellow tile

Continuing with Summer Color Schemes “Sea & Sky”, yellow combines beautifully with so many blues. Blue or yellow is an enduring color scheme and can be found in tiles, dinner ware, bowls, vases, fabrics, decorative plates and jewelry in countries  all around the Mediterranean, and from there across the Atlantic in Central and South America. In Portugal, entire buildings are covered with blue and yellow tiles, inside and outside.

From pale buttery yellows to deep egg yolk yellow, sunny colors lift the spirit and bring instant cheerfulness. Combined with blue – whether indigo or turquoise – creates a combination both cool and warm.

Perhaps you have a bowl of Italian majolica in turquoise blue and pale lemony yellow, or a true blue and daffodil or buttercup yellow painted plate to use as your starting point for a summer scheme. Whatever your accumulated treasures that are your reminders of a life lived, at cross-point™ we offer custom colors so we can adapt any one of our patterns to your particular shades of blue and yellow.
