Perhaps it’s the excessive number of gray days we’ve had in the past few weeks, but lately I’ve really been dreaming about the warm, long days of summer. Oh, the joys of lazy afternoons on the boat, flip-flops, golden brown skin, veggies from the garden and an abundance of fresh fruit at the farmer’s market.
I was looking through old photos and happened upon this shot from a trip the hubby and I took to the North Carolina in July of 2007. While driving from Norfolk, Virginia to the Outer Banks, we stopped at a roadside stand that was just bursting with ripe, delicious fruit. We bought a couple trays and spent the rest of the drive eating our purchases and trying to hide our berry-stained fingers.
To me this palette has the right balance of playfulness, with a touch of dark plum to keep it grown up and slightly moody. Perfect for a teen’s bedroom or maybe a fun, alternative wedding!
