Mood Board: Summer Celebration To Inspire Your Style

Summer has us all feeling inspired. It’s a warm and wonderful time and year with backyard barbecues and pool parties and balmy beachside evenings.

Everyone has a different idea of what summer is to them, but we can all agree that it’s a pretty joyous time of year. With the festivities of Christmas and New Year’s now over, we’ve got to look to other things to keep us inspired and motivated.

Here’s a seasonal Mood Board to get those good vibes flowing.

The Colours of Summer

A traditional themed Mood Board will typically follow a specific palette. In this case, we’ve chosen five fun, vibrant colours for cohesion.

Bright summery colours include sunshine yellow and warm orange, as well as dark turquoise for something cool. We’ve opted for two blue hues that remind us of relaxing poolside, and the depths of the ocean.

Summer beach and bedding

If you’ve got beach on the brain, why not give your bedroom a summer facelift? Opt for the bolds and brights for a hit of vibrancy and tropical cheer. Add greenery for some fresh texture.

We’ll be hitting the pool and heading off to the beach this season. A beach towel not only dries you off and keeps the sand at bay, it’s also one of the hottest accessories for the summertime.

Celebrating outdoor entertaining

The best way to spend the warm season is out there enjoying it! Picnics, barbecues, pool parties, bike rides, bush walks – get outside and do it all!
