I’m not going to lie, it’s been a pretty bleak summer so far. Floods have been flooding, camps have been cancelled, and more seriously, it’s been catastrophe after tragedy around here. All around Texas we are still cleaning up messes and attempting to get back to normal. And I never thought I’d say this, but I’m pretty sure we are all ready for this rain rain to go away. Since I can’t control the weather, I’ve decided that I’m going to mindfully make myself to shift gears and move into a different headspace until the sun peeks through. No more dark clouds. I’m ready for some color.
When I think of summer, I think of oranges and yellows and bright pinks. Oh but no. Not this Summer. The Gods of Pantone have spoken and we are forecasted to have an easy, breezy, beachy summer with enough sea glass tones to make anyone want to collect some shells, take a nap and call it a day. At least, that’s what we think they are telling us. And you’re right, Pantone, we need to take it easy for a few months. Let’s do that.
Plus honestly, right now, I just want to look at some pretty pictures of pretty things that aren’t covered in water or mold. A visual breath of fresh air for five seconds. So in the spirit of color and easy breezy summer goodness, let’s look at how we would bring these colors into life.
