Color Palette Inspiration: Mustard & Wood

I know it’s right smack in the middle of summer right now, but our Pre-Fall Preview is getting us all in the mood for autumn-feeling colors, albeit slightly. We’re feeling late summer nights, wrapped in a blanket on the beach with a breeze that’s cool and fresh; hangouts around a campfire in the woods when the sun is low in the sky; and road trips for days with no destination in sight.

Here’s some inspiration for a mid-summer color palette, with hints of fall brought about by two simple elements: mustard yellow and wood.

Pretty color palette… I love your inspo photos, mustard is growing on me.

Love love love this color combo. It brings back a lot of memories from my grandma’s home.

Come check out the Avocado Hummus I made,



I’ve been trying so hard to avoid autumn right now, because I tend to crave it too early (it being my absolute favorite season and all) and I want to savor summer as much as possible. This post is definitely not helping! I seriously can’t wait for boots and sweaters and coats, sipping coffee while sheltered from the rain in a music shop.


I agree with Lily…I’m finding myself wishing my summer away! I tell myself one day at a time, but I can’t help but think of cooler days, falling leaves in vibrant autumn colors, and cozy clothes. This is such a beautiful post and color combination!

Those beeswax candles are made by Pollen Arts and they’re rad!


Looooveee these two colors together! Definitely a must have for my wardrobe in the fall!
