color therapy

20130121-160318.jpg
Most of the world (well, the working world at least) has the day off today to relax, enjoy this beautiful January weather we’ve been blessed with, celebrate Mr. King, and tune in to the presidential inauguration. Sadly, I get to partake in none of these things (except for remembering MLK, I can do that anywhere), so to keep myself from falling asleep at my desk today, I glanced through my pins to find some brights to jump start my afternoon. A bold slap of pink and red anyone? Yes please. Now I’m awake.

I’m not normally a red kind of gal, but these images have me flushed.

We had a truly gorgeous sunset sky over the weekend, which lead me to putting together these three images I found.  I’m loving the color combo of pink and yellow lately, too.

It’s been a bright and sunny weekend.  Thinking this Monday needs a little glimmer of gold to make me want to work when it’s this nice outside.

First off, yes, I’m aware that polka dot is not a color, but a pattern.  But I’m kind of obsessed with it right now, so I thought I’d throw the color rules out the window for today.  The polka dot fetish is only seconded by my obsession with stripes, and I’ve never been much of a pattern girl until now, so watch out!  One of these days I’m going to combine the two in my wardrobe and things are going to get crazy up in here! Love it.

Ahhhh, it finally feels like spring is upon us here on the coast of California.  The hillsides are perfectly green and the garden is bursting with color and texture.  Today’s inspiration is all about the bright kelly green that comes from a rainy winter and a perfect spring.

This weekend was so beautiful and I got to spend lots of time in the garden, enjoying all the bright colors that seems to be so vibrant after a rain.  I was even able to cut some flowers and branches and bring them into the house; the first bouquet of the year! Today I put together a little inspiration board based on the greenery I saw this weekend.

Ice cream season is almost upon us and I’ve been dreaming about making homemade sorbets! Today’s inspiration colors are pulled from this delicious summer treat.  Enjoy!

The lavender in our yard is in full bloom, new growth popping up everywhere from the rains that we had last week.  I love the combination of the soft grey-green and the delicate shades of purple, so I thought I’d pull together a little lavender inspiration for the week.  I hope it inspires you as well.
