It’s Wednesday the 13th… Are you ready for this month Link Party? I’m really happy with the theme we picked for this month; colors! Working on my color palette and mood board, seeing all those lovely bright colors and picking the right images, made me very happy! What about you? Did you enjoy the theme as well? The photo I’ve picked was from a cremation a few weeks ago in Ubud. Despite that it was a cremation, there were lots of colors in the decorations, clothing and offerings. Since we’ve been traveling I come across many colors everywhere I look. Colorful souvenirs, colorful design, colorful food, colorful people, colorful interiors, colorful cars (jeepneys in the Philippines) and colorful sunsets. I call them global treasures.
// My Color Palette of Colorful Escapes
Color #1 = #CCA02C // Color #2 = #0E82B0 // Color #3 = #A64473 // Color #4 = #B8333C // Color #5 = #2C1F3D
I love to find (and buy) colorful things for in our future home. Even we don’t have a clue where we are going to live and what sort of house it will be, I think it’s such a shame to not buy a beautiful global treasure because you will never know if you ever come back here or there. That’s why we’ve bought a beautiful tea set in China, crockery in Vietnam (90 pieces, 2 didn’t make it to Holland, the other 88 did), paintings from Cambodia, wooden statues from the Philippines, some small stuff here and there as decoration, slippers for in the house in Laos and so on. Now we are in Bali we’ve planned to buy some more stuff but more about that later this week. I don’t want to spoil the story about me going to a traditional market and ending up being married to a Balinese guy ;-)
Mood Board // Global Treasures
Photo #1 comes from Dar Kawa of beautiful baskets in Marakech. Photo #2 comes from Vineet Kaur. Hand woven blankets. Aren’t they beautiful? Photo #3 is a detailed photograph of my Hmong bag from Thailand. The Hmong tribes are great in handmade bags and other accessories. Last but not least is photo #4. I’m so happy I’ve found this Etsy shop of Leslie Sabella. She makes these beautiful drawings in paper and on her computer. I’m planning to write a post about her because her work is so amazing, colorful and inspiring!
And now here’s the part where I invite you to share your mood board and color palette that you’ve made last week. If you already blogged about it, this is how you can add your link to your beautiful project;
