Color Inspiration (Guest Post)


Hi there, Holly’s readers! I’m Jessica from Coco & Mingo, and I was so thrilled when Holly asked me to guest post on her lovely blog and share some wonderful color inspiration with you all!

Before I started blogging my inspiration and color stories, I was working doing the same sort of thing in various design environments, in particular: fashion, textile, and interiors.  You can find inspiration literally anywhere, you just gotta keep your eyes and ears open! So for today’s post, Holly asked me to share something dealing with color + interiors or color + fashion.  Because interiors and fashion take inspiration off of each other in so many ways, I’ve decided to combine the two and show you how inspiration can translate into pretty much…anything!  The possibilities are endless!

I particularly love creating an environment or lifestyle within an inspiration board so that anyone can be inspired to take the direction into their personal lives.  I created the lifestyle mood board above because I absolutely love citrus + melon colors together.  It’s a fantastic combination for summer and a palette that can easily transition into upcoming Fall. It’s a great color to wear and really easy to bring into your home and lifestyle!

See below a few ways that you can incorporate this color palette into your environment:


1. Sparkling strawberry rosé sangria 2. Vintage mint green lamp with ombre citrus cloth cord 3. Yellow ombre vase 4. Tangerine roll-up denim shorts 5. Striped taper candles
