I took this picture on a recent vacation to Fire Island. If you look at this color palette you can see why we draw from it so many times in our home decor. I’m not sure what is more beautiful…the rich blues of the ocean, earthy tones of the sand or the green grasses blowing on the dunes. I believe the place to find inspiration most is nature. While we have done an amazing job with our color wheels (who has to name all those colors??) when given the opportunity to paint a room virtually anything we want we can and should look outdoors to guide us when making a selection. By the way, this is the view from my brother’s girlfriends deck at her home. As my husband and I walked the beach there is an option to be naked up the ways from this one. Can I just say there is a reason why all the paintings in museums are of the female form! Yikes.
