Orange and Blue in the Garden

I was never a fan of blue in the garden. It just didn't seem to fit to me. However since moving into our house with a pool in the backyard, blue is a must. 

Last year while on vacation, I was influenced by the Beach Club pool at the Encore hotel in Vegas. The hot orange sizzled against the cool blue pool. So blue and orange it was. I loved it so much that I did a repeat this year ( after all Tangerine Tango is the colour of the year!).

My backyard - not quite the cool Beach Club but good looking none the less.  

Blue striped lounge chair pads and pillows are accented with orange towels.

So now that the garden is planted and the patio is set up, we can enjoy our cool blue pool with an orange infused cocktail!
