Color Inspiration for Summer

Summer is definitely in full swing here in Tennessee! It’s been crazy hot and humid lately! Once it’s over 90 degrees I want to be near a pool and that is all! We got a bit of a break today with some pop up rain showers, which has helped cool it off considerably.

Feeling the heat did give me a bit of inspiration, though! I realized that there are some great color combinations that you can get from “summery” things! I wanted to share with you a few of the photos that have inspired me to create a few summertime color palettes.

Below each photo I have linked the closest yarn color I could find to match these photos. I hope they inspire you to create something wonderful!

These sea shells truly show all the amazing colors you can find near the ocean! I think this color pattern would be fun for a summery project!

This picture is quintessential summer! All those warm tones go so well together.
I think these sunset inspired colors would make something wonderful!

Don’t you just love the vibrant colors of these tulips! Flowers in bloom always make me think of the hot summer months and all the things growing everywhere! It’s nature at it’s most beautiful!

Yarn colors (from left to right):
Bright Yellow
Hunter Green
Medium Purple
Bubble Gum

Hopefully one of these color combinations will inspire you to start a new crochet project! You could try this with some of your personal photos, as well! Look at your photos and try to pick out the 4 or 5 colors that “pop” the most. See if you can find some new combos of your own!

Happy crocheting!
