A Summer Color Palette To Inspire The Season Ahead

When it comes to dressing, my color palette is very minimal. Black, white, gray, navy… I’m just not a fan of brightly colored clothing. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love color, and lately I’ve been so drawn to it visually. Maybe it’s because it rained for pretty much a month straight here in Austin, and now that the sun is back out everything feels so vivid and alive. Colors are everywhere I look, on building walls, in clear blue pool waters or the murky rich greens of the lakes, in fresh fruit and blooming cactus plants, and of course in the blue skies overheard. I’ve been capturing the colors here and there, and put together a little summer color palette below.

Hey I especially like the one of the bus! I live in Austin too so understand about the rain. That shade of blue, purple, and lime are my new summer yard go-to colors! Am coordinating my plants, paint, and pots in those colors!
