Color Crush: {A Dramatic Summer Palette}

Even though the official start of summer is weeks away, the crazy warm temps that are rockin’ San Francisco have us thinking of nothing but pool time today. While we were saving this twist on summery colors for after Memorial Day, it just feels too right right now!

Yes, we’re taking summer inspiration from a moody and luscious bedroom! This room has actually been sitting in our inspiration file for ages. We love its androgynous glam feel – it could easily skew masculine or feminine depending on your mood! The style is eclectic and collected, but the use of grays and blacks keep the space feeling chic and sophisticated rather than vintagey. Of course, we’re swooning over the gray wall, the black velvet pillows and copper-colored accents. It reminds us of Morocco. And who wouldn’t love to have their bedroom walled in with floor to ceiling metal-paned glass?? Hellloooo gorgeous.

So we were thinking, instead of going with the season’s standards of bright white or bold neon, why not take a cue from this bedroom and put a sultry spin on your summer essentials?!

Whether you’re looking for a new accessory for your beach house, {or more realistically} your bedroom, we love this stool - made of cardboard - {hello, bedside table!}, while the floral pillows are anything but girly. I only wish I’d spied that bikini and tote in time for Greece. C’est la vie. Now we’ll just have to find another fabulous location to jet set to once summer makes its official debut!

How about you? Are you into breaking the mold when it comes to seasonal color trends?
