New Yard Project Part 4: The Blue Wall

Next on our yard to-do list is choosing a striking wall color. We're inspired by the above photo of a blue stucco wall somewhere in the Yucatan. A bold color sure makes the palms pop! And it's almost the exact same color as the sky. Below is our wall and a few color chips. The idea is to make our palms pop, too, with the vines creating an undersea kelp effect.

What do you think? Do any of these blues look like the "the one"? After a while, they all start to look really similar.

So far we're partial to the above chip, second from the bottom.


  1. I really like that, Amanda. I am partial to bright colors. Thank you so much for following along with my trip. It was a wonderful experience and I really appreciate you coming along!!

  2. That is a GREAT color, Amanda! They're all great blues, though...LOL! The one you've chose is a nice half way, don't you think? What a super idea... This is going to be FABULOUS! Can't wait to see the finish... Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

  3. That's a beautiful color....waiting to see the completed wall....Blue has always been a favorite color...have a great time painting...The inspiration image looks amazing...the wall kind of merges with the sky..
