Colour Crush :: Cobalt Blue

BlogEmily Rollings

I cannot think of summer without this evocative colour popping straight into my head and maybe it's the constant thoughts of the Greek islands that mean come August all I can think about is the colour of those crystal waters and cobalt topped chapels. The other destination that can hardly be overlooked when one thinks of this hue is the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech (pictured above), otherwise known as the Yves Saint Laurent Garden. So enamoured were my sister and I with this location as children that we persuaded our parents to let us paint the garden wall this colour - and thus it remained.
