Island Dreams color chips on Family Fresh Cooking blog

The weather has sure been all over the place lately in Southern California. My kids keep begging to go to the ocean and my husband and I keep begging for it to get a bit warmer before we splash splash. This photo I took on Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands. The weather was warm, bright and the perfect inspiration for a ColorFresh color board!

Follow my ColorFresh { Island Dreams } board on Pinterest for more color inspiration based off this palette.

These colors are popping up everywhere lately. It’s still chilly in NY but they make me want to have a pool installed and book a trip to an island!

Sounds like a great idea. My folks just told me it got chilly + rainy again out in NY. Last week it was steamy. Go figure. Happy this color palette could help make things look brighter!

Those colors just scream calm! Well…maybe not scream since it’s supposed to be calming… 😉

Gorgeous shot Marla! When I redid my living room I used the color palette from a photo I took of one of my favorite places on earth. Everytime I step into the room I’m reminded of my “happy place”!!! Great board BTW… love it!!
