After that were a couple of hangups, and then a male voice came on, blues thumping behind it.

Sakey, Marcus

He studied the bright print curtains and wallpaper, the mix of soft yellows, blues, and pinks that trimmed out the basic white of the plaster and woodwork.

The mosaic there was blues and greens, and it stretched up in a passable imitation of a door, a round wheel of yellow right where the knob should be.
Он был выложен сине‑зеленым мозаичным узором и имел форму двери, а желтый кружок на правой стороне вполне мог служить ручкой.

To Hell and Back
Saintcrow, Lilith
© 2008 by Lilith Saintcrow
The rainbow from which it took its name arched overhead, faint now in the blaze of sunlight, the blues and purples almost invisible, the reds and yellows washed of their color.
Радуга, от которой озеро и получило свое название, висела и сейчас над ним, едва заметная при ярком солнце: голубой и фиолетовый цвета были почти неразличимы, красный и желтый совсем поблекли.

Scotch was the drink of choice, blues the music and the lighting scheme, smoke the preferred atmosphere.
Здесь любимым напитком было виски, любимой музыкой — блюз, а любимой атмосферой — табачный дым.

Ethel Henderson sat at her machine before the window of Mr. Lagume's study, and stared blankly at the greys and blues of the November twilight.
Этель Хендерсон сидела за своей машинкой перед окном в кабинете мистера Лэгьюна и безучастно рассматривала серо-синие краски ноябрьских сумерек.

Even as far away as the Farmer’s Inn, where they had blues bands like Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Free and Jethro Tull on a Sunday night.

The faint pink around his eyes usually indicated funky-junkie, but Roarke noted the eyes were the palest of blues-water blue-and just as clear.
Розоватые веки обычно указывали на потребителя дешевого наркотика, именуемого в просторечии «химкой», но Рорк заметил, что глаза у него бледно-голубые, прозрачные, почти бесцветные.

And later they paddled in a boat above the mysterious deeps of the See, and peered down into the green-blues and the blue-greens together.
А потом взяли лодку и поплыли на веслах над таинственными глубинами озера, пристально всматриваясь в его зеленовато-голубые и голубовато-зеленые воды.

"Oh, sir," said one of the blues to him, "people of your appearance and of your merit never pay anything: are you not five feet five inches high?"
Ну, — сказал ему один из голубых, — такой человек, как вы, не должен платить; ведь ростом-то вы будете пять футов и пять дюймов?
