On Tuesday night, I arrived back in Chicago after ten glorious days in Arizona. I take a trip to Scottsdale around this same time every year, but my level of appreciation for being outdoors in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert was at an all-time high after the winter we just had. More than ever, I made the effort to be in the moment whenever I was outside. I consciously took in the warm sensation of the sun on my face, the scent of the blooming flowers, and the visual beauty of the gorgeous colors of the desert. In fact, I can't seem to get those desert shades out of my mind - the sandy beiges, the vibrant corals, the rich oranges, and the vivid turquoise blues (there is just nowhere else where the color of the sky is so magical as the desert!). And in the spirit of my recent vacation, for this edition of color love, I thought I'd share some of my favorite desert-colored goodies as of late.
Are you a fan of desert shades? Are there any nature settings that particularly inspire you when it comes to color schemes?
