Robin's Egg Blue and Tiffany Blue

The color Robin's Egg Blue comes from the blue eggs
that the American Robin lays. The first recorded use
of the name of this color was in the 1870's. It is also
the inspiration for Tiffany's trademark color. Did you
know that Tiffany has trademarked the name of the
color Robin's Egg Blue? I thought I might showcase
some variations of this color in different rooms. It's a
very popular and very beautiful color.

I've never seen this color used in a kitchen but I must
say that the kitchen above with the Robin's Egg Blue,
dramatic chandelier with white counter tops is quite
fantastic.

Many of you have already seen Mary McDonald's
gorgeous office which is painted with Robin's Egg Blue.
Doesn't it look like a Tiffany's box? Just gorgeous.

Here's an interesting combination of Robin's Egg
Blue with a light olive shade of green. I never
would have thought to pair these two colors
together, but it does work. It gives the traditional
setting a bit of a modern feel. Very nice.

Here's a lighter shade of Robin's Egg Blue with brown.

The blue on the ceiling actually has more of a grey
tone to it. Paired with light brown, white and pops
of bright color - it makes for a very nice library or
sitting room.

This paint job with contrasting outlines on the walls
creates a lot of visual interest and some depth.

A wonderful blend of traditional furniture in a
modern home. The blue backdrop makes for
a lovely neutral in this particular room.

This is a really gorgeous guestroom. A light shade of
Robin's egg blue on the wall with deeper pillows. I love
the natural material used on the bench.

Don't like the color or look of your old brick wall?
How about a paint job? The blue did wonders for
this wall.

A soothing nursery in a light robin egg blue.
The hot pink rug really makes a statement!

Robin's Egg Blue can fit just as well with traditional
furnishings. This room is proof that it can be a great
neutral backdrop when paired right with other colors.

The color can be very soothing.

Do you like Robin's Egg Blue or Tiffany Blue? Would
you do a room in this color?

Stay tuned for Thursday's post - there will be a follow
up with paint color samples for those of you interested
in painting a room in Robin's Egg Blue.

I did not know about the trademark. My master bathroom is Robin Egg's blue. Lovely picks. It's such a fresh, upbeat and stylish color.

pinkstilettos said...

Yes, I love this color- one of my favorites actually!! Daisy~

Jennifer, Inside Out Colour and Design said...

How bizarre! I just came across your blog when I was on Villa Anna. The title of your post grabbed my eye as I recently did a post on my favourite colour combination - Chocolate and Aquamarine. Robin's Egg for me all the way. Love your blog. Think I will subscribe to your posts.

pixiepine said...

I love this color. I have a lovely dress in a color called Cloud, which is very similiar to this blue. We almost did our kitchen in Robin Egg blue, but ended up with a light grassy green. I can't wait till one day when I get a nice present in that signature Tiffany blue box, too!

Zelda said...

egg blue !!!? what a weird association ... as blue lips ... bleu cat .... blue sun ...

Mango Gal said...

This is such a beautiful post. I honestly cannot decide between the two!

Norine said...

the olive green and blue looks the freshest to me. I love blue, but tend more toward turquoise and orange. In fact, I realized the other day that I have always had some turquoise and orange in every home I have ever had.

Fifi Flowers said...

Your post is PERFECT for me to have linked too... BLUE HERE and blue on my site directing everyone here!!! FAB!!!
Hope you are ENJOYING life!

Erin said...

Like? No! LOVE!!! You picked so many of my all-time favorite rooms!! Such eye-candy! :)

Tiaa @ EYInteriors said...

I love them both! I am preparing to do a client's living room in blue and orange with a touch of olive green. I recently did a post about about it. Also, my basement is blue and brown. The more I look at this color the more I want to use it. Great post! :)

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

LOVE Robin's Egg and Tiffany Blue! My bedroom has accents of it. Beautiful post Karen!

Brandi said...

These blues are so absolutely gorgeous. I'm trying to plan out how I'm going to paint my new place (I still have to FIND the new place which complicates things) and I'm trying to resist painting every room some fantastic shade of blue. These photos just prove how many gorgeous variations there are...

Angela Darling said...

I've always loved that color.. especially with punches of hot pink mixed in.

Julia said...

I just bought the Domino book to day and I am so in love and inspired!

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

This is such an important color in my home, can't get enough of it!

The Buzz - Diane James Home said...

Did you see the cover of House Beautiful? Bunny William's gorgeous blue room for the 2009 Kips Bay showhouse.

{eloquent essence} said...

The blue looks so refreshing and lovely in these rooms. I especially adore the second photo. I just love how the black and white framed photos pop against the blue and white walls and furnishings. Although personally, I would prefer the table to have fewer accents. But it's still so lovely to look at.

M.Kate said...

Nice! I may repaint one of my room in this color, never thought about it before but when I see it here, it is so calming.

Jan said...

These are all lovely - such a restful colour.
I agree with previous commenter - a little too much going on at the office table.

bluehydrangea said...

Robin's egg blue or Tiffany blue, love them both! I actually love just about any shade of blue so all these rooms were right up my alley!! thanks for the great pictures.

Hayley (and Kyle) said...

I love the photo with the combination of robin's egg blue and olive; I wonder if it isn't James Merrell? I think blues and greens are great together if they've got the same amount of blackness and whiteness.

Sherol Vinhas said...

I've been thinking of incorporating blues into my home for a couple of weeks now. These photos really are pushing me in that direction! Lovely!

Small women are believed to find it more complicated to use fat than larger women as

This can be achieved by adding more weight, increasing
the number of repetitions, or by adding on additional sets.
