Monochromatic Monday :: Water Colors

July 25th, 2011

Aqua_Watercolor_Inspiration_BoardI worked on this inspiration board over the weekend, as I stretched out under a big fan on the patio, frosty glass of iced tea in hand, and tried to escape the extreme heat that’s consumed Austin for the better part of July. It’s no surprise that I found myself gravitating towards cool, watery images like an oasis in the desert: turquoise, teal and aqua come together for a palette that’s so refreshing, I just want to gaze and gaze. Wouldn’t this be a lovely combination for a late summer party, when everyone seems to be craving a respite from the heat? Spend an afternoon crafting watercolored invites, don a pair of dangling aquamarine jewels and set the table with white orchids and seashells. I have a feeling that guests may never want to leave…
