Nature is often responsible for providing ready-made, harmonious color palettes you can draw inspiration from when choosing items for seasonal or year-round home decorating palettes. By sticking to the color palette, you’ll have no problem combining colors that you love in a way that everyone will appreciate.
If you’re looking for spring and summer home decorating palettes, florals can provide the ideal source of color inspiration. Below you’ll find four home decorating palettes fresh from Puget Sound region nature photos. Use these color combinations as inspiration for in and outdoor furnishings, bedding, table linens, art and accessories – anywhere you’re looking for an update – in colors that are particularly pertinent to the Pacific Northwest.
4 Nature-Inspired Home Decorating Palettes from Pacific Northwest Flowers, Mountains and Beaches
Home Decorating Palettes – Straight from the Skagit Valley’s Tulip Fields
Many Seattle-Tacoma area home owners make an annual trek to visit the tulip fields in the Skagit Valley. If you’re one of those who loves the vivid colors that herald the coming of spring in the Pacific Northwest, you can bring that feeling home with you in summer home decorating palettes from your favorite tulip colors. We’ve chosen this gorgeous tulip and its warm tones for inspiration. While any fine spring day is a good day to go and capture your own photos, choosing your favorite tulip varietal for color inspiration, you can also attend the Tulip Festival which runs from April 1-30 annually.
Home Decorating Palettes – From the Heights of Mt. Rainier
No Pacific Northwest nature-derived color palette would be complete without taking inspiration from the local monarch, Mt. Rainier. Holding court with her lush greens, craggy peaks and snow-covered glaciers, this fine lady provides home decorating palettes rooted in nature. Visitors to Mt. Rainier can capture their own great photos for nature-inspired home decorating color palettes from roadside stopping points on Highway 410 during summer months (WA-410 is generally open from Labor Day until heavy mountain snowfalls close the road in fall).
Home Decorating Palettes – Feeling Beachy at Saltwater State Park
Saltwater State Park in Des Moines offers south Sound home owners in King, Pierce and Thurston County a great destination for a family outing at the beach. Likewise, if you’re looking for someplace to take a special someone before dining at a waterfront restaurant, this park is an ideal choice. Its colors include sandy tans, browns and grays from beached driftwood, sky blues and watery greens. This is a popular destination for families who want to camp out, picnic or for taking prom, homecoming or senior pictures. It’s also a popular spot for scuba enthusiasts thanks to its underwater artificial reef.
Home Decorating Palettes – Everything is Coming Up Roses
Not to be outdone by a field of Tulips and much closer to home for south King, Pierce and Thurston County home owners is the rose garden at Pt. Defiance. The park, which features more than an acre of rose gardens, also offers site visitors a picturesque wishing well and quaint gazebos. It’s also a very popular Pierce County wedding venue and the site many choose to have senior photos, prom, homecoming and other formal occasions recorded for posterity.
