Simply Duets...

Red & Blue, Rouge & Bleu, Rot & Blau, Vermelho & 
Azul, Rood & Blauw, Rosso & Blu, Rojo & Azul...

When I don't have any blue I use red.

Cuando no tengo azul, uso rojo.

There is something about blue and red together that just looks so...jaunty...
Hay algo sobre azul y rojo juntos que luce tan...pícaro...

Call it aqua, turquoise, or Tiffany blue.  Pairing this color 
with a bright red makes a color combination that can be fun and 
whimsical, or surprisingly elegant...
Llámalo agua, turquesa, o azul Tiffany. Emparejándolo con 
un rojo brillante logramos una combinación que puede que puede 
ser divertida y caprichosa o sorprendentemente elegante...

Blue is tricky. It can go gray and sad. But not this warm 
Mediterranean blue. It's a bright, happy, not a cloud in the 
sky blue...
El azul es difícil. Puede verse grisáceo y triste. Pero no 
este cálido azul mediterráneo. Es brillante, alegre, como 
un cielo sin nubes...

Red never goes out of style. It's full of life, always fresh, 
always fun... 
El rojo nunca pasa de moda. Está lleno de vida, es siempre 
fresco, divertido...

If you don't mind veering into nautical or patriotic territory, 
you can't go wrong with a red, blue, white combination...the 
white makes everything snap...
Si no te asusta bordear lo náutico o patriótico, 
no puedes equivocarte con la combinación de  rojo, azul y 
blanco...el blanco hace que todo destaque...

Make the most of small details. Even a pair of sneakers in this 
color combo can provide a punch of color to any outfit...
Saca provecho de los pequeños detalles. Incluso un par 
de zapatillas en esta combinación de colores puede agregar un 
toque de color a cualquier conjunto...

A combination of blue balloons and  deep red wine creates a 
vibrating effect, perfect for celebrations...
Una combinación de globos azules y un vino de un rojo profundo

Red and blue in art, like an inspiration in the unforgettable 
french short "Le Ballon Rouge"...

A little red goes a long way. It's good in areas where you 
don't spend much time or in boring areas that need a strong 
burst of color, but then...blue calms and reenergizes, 
just as the ocean does...
Un poco de rojo consigue mucho. Es bueno para lugares donde 
no pasamos mucho tiempo o en sectores aburridos que 
necesitan una fuerte inyección de color, pero entonces...e
azul calma y reenergiza, como el océano...

...and of course, this color duet brings nautical association, 
reminds me of vacation time...
...y por supuesto, este dúo de colores con reminiscencias 
náuticas, me hace recuerda las vacaciones...

We can use different shades of blue, and red, to create impact 
in an exterior, or an interior...
Podemos usar diferentes tonos de azul, y de rojo, para crear 
impacto en una fachada o en un interior...

...we can make a bold and bright statement with reds tomatoes 
or strawberries over an aquamarine and white table setting...
...podemos hacer una presentación poderosa y brillante con 
tomates y fresas muy rojas sobre una vajilla y mantelería blanca 
y aguamarina...

In decoration, reds will dominate and blues will recede, so 
be judicious when placing reds throughout your home...use them 
as vibrant accents, and let blue tell the story...
En decoración, los rojos van a dominar y los azules van a 
retroceder, tienes que ser juiciosa al ubicar rojos por tu casa...
úsalos como acentos vibrantes, y deja que el azul cuente la 
historia...

Red and Blue Swirl. 1970.
Alexander Calder, lithograph.
  
A red and blue swirl could have completely different meanings...
from a roller coaster to this Alexander Calder lithograph, both of 
them fun and exciting...
Un remolino rojo y azul puede entenderse de formas muy distintas...
desde una montaña rusa hasta esta litografía de Alexander Calder, 
ambos divertidos y excitantes...

Red is a neutral for me. Like red nail polish, it's classic. It 
goes with every color, like this gorgeous aquamarine blue, 
and the basic duet: black & white...
El rojo es un neutral para me. Como el esmalte de uñas rojo, 
es un clásico. Va con todos los colores, como este maravilloso 
azul aguamarina, y el dúo de básicos: blanco y negro...

You can mix red with little patterns & different shades 
of blue for a bright an feminine outfit...
Puedes mezclar un rojo con pequeños estampados & diferentes tonos 
de azul para un conjunto femenino y brillante...



Daniel Craig.
The girl with the dragon tatoo. Millenium.


I've never seen a blue I didn't like. Everything from 
the darkest to the lightest and, on Daniel Craig...I love 
him it even more!...
Nunca vi un azul que no me guste. Todos, desde el más oscuro al 
más claro y, sobre Daniel Craig...¡Lo amo a él todavía más!...




Chloe dress.
Tiffany blue box.

And if Daniel romance is in the mix,  a gorgeous red 
dress and a cute tiffany blue box with a red ribbon...
...Tiffany Blue is Tiffany & Co.'s official color (Pantone 
Matching System number 1837, the founding year of the company!)... 
Y si Daniel el romance está en la mezcla, un bellísimo vestido 
rojo y una adorable cajita azul Tiffany con una cinta roja...
...Azul Tiffany es el color oficial de Tiffany & Co. ( Paleta Pantone número 1837, ¡el año en que se fundó la compañía!)...

...Gorgeous  makeup, a little blue in the eyes, and of course, 
red lipstick...to finish with a romantic getaway in Paris...
...Dreams, colorful dreams...
...Un maravilloso maquillage, un poco de azul en los ojos, 
y por supuesto labial rojo...para terminar con una escapada 
romántica a Paris...
...Sueños, sueños coloridos...




Gorgeous Superhero...















Like those infant dreams, when we were brave and fearless...
Como esos sueños infantiles, cuando éramos valientes y no 
teníamos miedo...



If you happened to peek at my past posts, you may 
have noticed my little infatuation with some bright 
bold colors.
Si les diste un vistazo a mis posteos anteriores, 
habrás notado mi pequeña atracción por los colores 
fuertes y brillantes.
It speaks to my inner sunshine girl, and my 
aversion to kirsch.
Esto habla de mi colorida niña interior, y mi 
aversión por lo recargado.
Because somehow, bold color combinations seem 
way edgier.
Porque, de alguna manera, las combinaciones de 
colores muy dramáticas se me hacen demasiado osadas. 
Naturally, I've got to find a way to squeeze them 
into my wardrobe or decor...
Naturalmente, tengo que encontrar la forma de 
introducirlas en mi vestuario o decoración...
¡Adoro los desafíos! ...y ¡Soy invencible!...;)


And you...Do you dare? 
Y tú...te atreves?


Big Hugs!
¡Abrazos!




Inés

    La mezcla rojo-azul es ciertamente preciosa, pero bastante difícil de llevar a cabo sin verse recargado o patriótico... me quedo con esos colores para el estilo navy!

  23. This is great...Typically, I'm a die-hard, head-to-toe dresser in black. All of the colour in fashion right now has been inspiring me to wear brights and the interesting thing is, I truly do find it gives me energy and perks me up! I love the red & blue envelope clutch. Thank you, Ines!
