It’s summer! A perfect time for a collection of tropical color palettes to inspire your next project!
Are you a beach person? I tend to love the mountains, but there’s just something about the peacefulness of the beach that makes me long for a beach chair, a book, and a long afternoon.
The feel of a cool summer breeze, the sound of gentle ocean waves, the taste of fresh pineapple…a tropical afternoon is the best kind of summer!
Bring that easy, breezy feeling into your next project with these tropical color palettes!
Tropical Color Palettes to Beat the Heat
Sometimes all you need is a spark to set your creativity alight. That’s what color palettes do for me.
These tropical color palettes were so much fun to put together. Surfboards, jellyfish, flamingos, sunset over the ocean…when you can’t be there, making a project inspired by the tropics is the next best thing.
Some color palettes are bright and playful, others are tranquil and calming. Pick one that matches the personality of your design project and have fun creating!
