This week's cozy and bright color inspiration comes from the shelf of Hill Country Weavers in Austin. I have yet to learn how to knit or crochet, but I'd stop in this store regularly (if we lived closer) just to look at the colors. Mmmmm.

My brain is officially on summer vacation because I forgot to post this last week!

When I was studying abroad in Bologna, a friend came to visit from Paris and I still remember this comment she made: "Italy is so...colorful!" And indeed it is! Looking at this photo I wonder if neighbors coordinated with each other to create their hillside palette. :)

Happy Thursday (pretending it's last Friday)!




Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy

a door-inspired color palette // navy, teal, light blue, pink, peach, yellow // Amalfi, Italy by Akula Kreative [pinit]


On our way into the town of Amalfi, we walked through this quiet, colorful corridor built into the cliffs. The patches of pink and peach reminded me so much of rainbow sherbet!

BTW // I had no idea until NOW that sherbet only has one r. I must have ordered this flavor five million times when I was kid and never noticed.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it. Happy Friday!

a valentine-inspired color palette

a Valentine-inspired color palette // yellow, orange, pink, dusty miller [pinit]


I love that, in lieu of flowers today, Andrew brought home cupcakes for me, cookies for the dog, and offered to wash my car. For me, creativity is more romantic than all the red roses in the world. :)

In my quest for something a bit unexpected, I offer up this Valentine's Day color palette based on an arrangement I made myself! (I'm kind of proud of it.) It's a mix of peach and pink garden roses, yellow daffodils, dusty miller, and a "nodding pincushion" protea. To quickly "style" it, I used gold paper letters custom cut by Barney Design.


Happy Friday to everyone we love, including our families, friends, and wonderful clients! I hope this bouquet brightens your day.

Happy Valentine's Day from Akula Kreative
