Color of The Year

April 29, 2013


Coastal Living Magazine is a favorite along the Gulf Coast, and Fairhope has been featured several times in different stories about our beautiful area. I’m always excited to see what new coastal styles and travel tips the stylish magazine recommends.

And now I can stop staying up nights worrying and wondering. The final votes have been cast, and Coastal Living has announced the official, “Color of the Year.”

Drum roll please . . .

Sea Glass!!!!
I know, I know!  Can you contain your excitement?
Call your neighbor and fry some chicken, there’s going to be a shin-dig!
It’s peaceful, playful and oh so pretty. Tropical, tony and tasteful too.

I’m digging through my vast stash of Crayolas to come up with a perfect match. Is Sea Glass a good color for nail polish too?  Actually, my pup would look cute in a Sea Glass colored collar. Now I can’t stop thinking about it!

What do you think?
Does the seal of the City of Fairhope qualify as “sea glass” blue?

I was secretly hoping teal would be the winner. Bummer. Now I’ll have to change all my plans.
