And we’ll have fun, fun, fun…

And we’ll have fun, fun,  fun…in the summer sun!  I have talked about how our colour preference is linked to memories in previous blogs, so get out there this summer with your friends and family and make some memories!

A positive or negative reaction to colour is often linked to childhood memories.  Our judgement of colour is not just based on what we see, but also on what we feel.  We really never forget colour.

A colour professional’s job is to ask the right questions to get you to remember those happy memories and the colours that surround them. So surround yourself with paint, decor or clothing with those colours that make you feel good.

Below are some fun summertime images that I hope make you feel awesome.  I have also included some fantastic colour combinations that capture those warm summertime memories.

  1. Blues in the soft sky colour of summer reminds me of summer, basically that daisy picture you posted is a perfect representation in my mind 😀

  2. The colours of summer berries reds and blues and greens (leaves & stems) remind me of summer.

  3. How do I subscribe to the blog? My favourite summer colors are shades of orange, red & pink – hot summer sun & sweet juicy watermelon!

  4. Really loved this rift of colour…and subjects…well done!

  5. Colours of summer for me are pastel blues,purples and greens. Along with red for those lovely sunsets we get. Then many shades of green for all our plant life.

  6. Summer Swim Lessons is definitely the colours that remind me of summer. Along with any festival colours.. cotton candy anyone?

  7. Given that I go to the beach along our west coast shores every day, it is the greys of the rocks, the sunbleached tones in the driftwood, the blues and greens in the water, the whites in the clouds and blues of the sky which remind me of summer.

  8. Bright sunshiny yellows, sky blue, vibrant golden tones. I think of sun and the beach, so colours that remind me of bright blue sunny skies and beautiful beaches!
