i spy: pistachio ice cream.


don’t ask me why exactly, but i felt very drawn to these colors recently, and found myself pinning a whole array of images on my pinterest boards all somehow reflecting this pastel palette of minty green, gray, and soft peachy-pink and orange tones. i was quite surprised to see the commonality in colors, and thought they’d make a pretty post, if for nothing else but a bit of inspiration. and, because for some reason they make me imagine pistachio ice cream.

  6. Beautiful. I especially like the blue-green/turquoise shades you included above. I’ve been feeling the love for turquoise in a big way ever since this spring. In fact, I even started doing a Turquoise Tuesday post each week. Thanks so much for sharing your color inspiration!

    This is a very pretty post! Love the combination of color
    used in both the art and homes. Relaxing + uplifting at
    the same time.

    OK, well I love everything about this post! The minty green is one of my all-time favorite colors. I typically pair it with red, but I have been leaning towards something softer lately and this is quite the lovely combination. Thanks for sharing such inspiring imagery!
