Sunny pastels

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Have you ever noticed how the harsh summer sun takes a little of the color vibrance away and makes everything look washed out and bright? Pastel shades seem to complement that attitude quite a bit, with all the whites and sandy shades mixing with seafoam blues and minty greens only too beautifully. I love them when used indoors, like the bedroom above or the amazing blue/white cement tiles below, and, most definitely, as a vernacular aegean exterior, accompanied by the stark simplicity of the forms.
