The summer is quickly coming to an end here in Atlanta. The back to school things have been bought and the kids have headed back to school. All of us at LAURA RAMSEY FURNITURE AND INTERIORS had the opportunity this summer to get away for great family vacations and recharged our batteries. The true glory of a vacation is that it allows us to slow down and stop for a minute to see the beauty that is literally all around us. Just thinking about the sound of a child’s laughter, or seeing a wave break on the shore while sea gulls call to each other, makes you stop and think about how much beauty is right in front of us all of the time.

Where does our color inspiration come from? When our eyes take in a beautiful sight are we really seeing it? Are we slowing down to smell the roses and thinking that’s enough? Or are we missing the beauty that this world places in front of us everyday? As designers, we were mesmerized by these gorgeous photos and the color palettes that they inspired. Do you want to redecorate a family room, design a new baby’s bedroom or romanticize a master bedroom? Then stop and take notice of the beauty that surrounds you. These are some of the beautiful images and inspired color palettes that have made us stop and take notice.


The intensity of the grays in the storm clouds against the clean color of the breaking waves is so calming. Then you add in the pop of the color of the red umbrella and wow!


We dare you to not find the various hues of the blues in this crashing wave not only soothing, but also utterly beautiful. Can you see a sun room or kitchen designed around the palette that this photo inspired?


Are we vacationing in the Pacific Northwest? Exploring the glories of Ireland or enjoying a cool, morning mist on an island in Hawaii? I guess it doesn’t really matter, all we know is that we are calm and serene when we see the beauty of the color palette that is inspired by this photo.


The monochromatic colors of this aged farm table against both the patina of the silverware, and the crispness of the white in the napkin, make this palette very soothing. It makes us wish it was a Sunday afternoon and we were heading for a favorite spot with a good book.


These turquoise doors, in what we hope is some faraway coastal village, are a great example of the wonderful beauty the world has to offer. Someone probably walks through these doors every morning and evening. We hope they take the time to stop to look at the glorious vibrancy of the color that adds to the beauty in their daily life.


The floral arrangement’s vibrant yellows, reds and oranges against the neutral tans in this photo makes us happy. Are you feeling blue? Walk into a room with this arrangement and you may just start having a different day.


This gorgeous photo of a simple flower and the color palette it projects is a perfect example of something that is around us all the time and the beauty it inspires! Imagine a daughter’s bedroom done in these colors. Gorgeous!
