Totally Tiffany!

tifffany boxIt is said that there approximately 52 different shades shades of blue that the human eye can see, but no shade is more iconic than the trademarked custom color Pantone 1837.  This medium robins egg blue is the color that we have all come to know as “Tiffany Blue.”

The color known as Tiffany Blue was selected by Tiffany & Co. founder Charles Lewis Tiffany for the cover of Blue Book, Tiffany’s annual collection of exquisitely handcrafted jewels, first published in 1845. This distinctive color may have been chosen because of the popularity of the turquoise gemstone in 19th-century jewelry. Turquoise was also a favorite of Victorian brides who gave their attendants a dove-shaped brooch of turquoise as a wedding day memento. Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany Blue was later adopted for use on shopping bags, as well as in advertising and other promotional materials. True to the founder’s vision, the Tiffany Blue Box® became an icon of luxury and exclusivity. The New York Sun, 1906

I think anything in Tiffany Blue makes me think of luxury and exclusivity. I love Tiffany Blue and love it for the home.  Have a look and see how you can achieve your own brand of luxury at home.
