If you follow me on Pinterest, you probably know by now that I have a bit of an addiction. As a visually-inspired person, Pinterest is my favorite social network and down time go-to. I draw a ton of ideas and inspiration from pins, and it’s one way that I stay current on decor and fashion trends. I also have a few magazine-style lifestyle blogs that I like to follow for inspiration, like My Domaine and Glitter Guide.
Mike and I have an ongoing joke about how I don’t read–I only like to look at pictures. We laugh about it, but the truth is that I do really like pictures! :) So, I wanted to share some pictures with y’all and tell you about the summer trends that I’ve been swooning over.
Pineapple has been popping up everywhere, and I can’t get enough of it! From accent pieces to fabrics, accessorizing with pineapples has been a huge thing this summer.
2. Greek Blue
I’ve always been a fan of bright cobalt blue–especially paired with white. Perhaps it’s because it reminds me of our 2008 trip to Greece, but this color just makes me happy!
3. Word Art
I think this trend may have started with Taylor Swift’s clever little graphic tees, but I’m totally on board. I have a nerdy affinity for typography (see, I do read!) so I love the idea of dressing up my walls with short, pretty messages! Bonus points for music lyrics or movie quotes.
Okay, seriously–aren’t pink flamingoes every little girl’s favorite “animal” at some point? Even at 31, they still put a smile on my face. I would love to decorate our back patio with a flamingo theme… It would never fly with Mister Weaver, but it would be so much fun–black, white, flamingoes!
5. White + Black
Speaking of black and white, I love that this classic color combo is so hot right now. Ten years ago we were all into the browns, and then we transitioned to grays… and now white and black are the neutral palette of the future.
So, which of these trends are your favorite? Check back next week to see how I’ve incorporated at least two of them into our master bathroom makeover!
