Personal Reflections: My Beachy Palette

July 24, 2011


A mini mood board I assembled
the other day as I daydreamed
about decor plans for the living room.



The palette is inspired primarily
by a Meredith Pardue abstract
(her color sense is yummychic)
as well as an atmospheric
Sargent and glorious neutrals
(sand, putty, aqua, french grey,
quiet gold, black, and a little turquoise).

The
subdued
faded
worn
colors
whisper
lovely...




all photos mine

Those whispers matter, don't you think?
Because the unlovely has a way of grabbing our attention.

Human frailty
guarantees
life will be more than just
beer and skittles,
fabulous chandeliers,
and walks on the beach...

Mannnnnn, I do resent that about human frailty.



I'm a visual and sensual person
with a wild imagination.
The colors in my palette
have a sedative effect,
impart balance,
and ignite
hope.

And hope never disappoints.

Ever assembled a mood board yourself?

Peace to you right where you are.

  3. Oh, sweetie...

    You have such a beautiful soul. Honestly, I see its beauty through your art.

    I'm sorry I didn't visit you last week. I had to take a break. My belly is pretty big now and staying hour in front of the computer isn't making me any good. But I missed you!


    Have a great week!

  7. Perfect beachy colours; what a great inspiration.
    I have never made a mood board, I just go full steam ahead when the mood takes hold! Must learn to do this...less drastic, but still beautiful to gaze at.

  10. You are such a creative person love your mood board and your colors. I've put together such items but not for decorating more for what pleases and interests me. I always have a pile of stuff on my desk laid out that grabs my eye in this manner.

  11. I do believe
    this mood board
    could be hung
    up as a piece of
    art....one that
    brings back memories
    of all that you
    love and inspires
    you to create even
    more beautiful things.
    Love it.

    You're right:

  15. Ahh beautiful beachiness... your mood board is stunningly serene and soothing, my lovely, and making me crave an escape from the daily stresses, feeling a bit frazzled from months of constant hecticness.

    I do enjoy the visual escapes you provide here.

    Hugs,
    Meera
