Board #544 | Me Ke Aloha

Mood: romantic, breezy
Palette: white hibiscus, sand, palm leaf, beach house blue

Our first inspiration board of 2012! And since it’s the midst of winter, I thought some of you might be craving a little destination inspiration. So we’re off to Hawaii! And as much as I love bright colors, I wanted to give you something light and breezy here. Neutrals like white and tan, greenery, and a bit of sun-bleached blue. I’ve drawn inspiration from things like palm trees, pineapples, and white hibiscus flowers, and added a few vintage touches like a retro fan, toy airplane, surfer postcard, and a darling Hawaiian quilt cake (I love Hawaiian quilts!).
