Color Crush: Robin's Egg
Welcome to July! This month, we’ve fallen for the soft, tranquil shade Robin’s Egg. Robin’s themselves are symbolic of new growth and renewal, and their beautiful powder-blue eggs are also often said to be symbolic of joy, hope and clarity. As we’re entering the first full month of Summer as we settle into some normalcy, that’s something I think we can all get behind.
The iconic hue of Robin’s Egg blends well with a plethora of colors like, coral, gray and yellow. To bring a little joy and welcome new beginnings into your home, read on for our favorite ways to use Robin’s Egg.

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Robin's Egg in an analogous color palette is a total win for your design theme. Give an analogous color palette a try, and incorporate hues such as teal, turquoise and cyan along with Robin's Egg. This example by Denise McGaha starts with bright aqua walls and incorporates Robin’s Egg in the details. She then used pattern with subtle touches varying blues throughout the space, like in the lamp and on the window treatments, to tie it all together subtly and stylishly.

Robin’s Egg is surprisingly versatile. Whether your space is traditional, modern, or eclectic, this shade can help communicate the aesthetic you’re aiming for. It allows the details in a pattern to become a bit more noticeable without the shade distracting from key details. This soft wallpaper in this example by Kristen McCory is a great example of that touch of color in a traditional space. All the differing elements, including the Robin’s Egg color, come together to make a creative space where every detail is exceptional.

MAKE IT THE MAIN FOCUS
Robin’s Egg can be the main color in a space without being too extreme. To keep it fun and stylish, take advantage of pattern and materials. In Stacy Garcia’s home office, the wood paneling on the walls is allowed to stand out because of the softness of the shade. Then incorporate pattern in Robin’s Egg shades to spread out the color and add dimension. Love the patterns in this space? Give them a try!
