Aqua is between blue and green, a mixture of green and blue. Farrow and Ball's Blue Ground, number 210

This color has caught my attention several times this past week. I was looking at colors to work with a deeper blue, more toward red. But this aqua kept catching my eye.  I saw it in fabrics and shimmering in wallpapers and looked at Josef Albers layers of colors. It was used much in the 60's and today a whole range of surfaces are using the mix of blue and green. It is cool, definitely, but how elegant.
