Summer means finally letting the colors run free. It is the time to shake off any inhibitions we have about vibrant and bold and let the muted palettes take a break. Now it’s up to you where you want this color to reign. Personally, I find myself drawn to colorful art in the warmer months. Maybe it’s something about bringing the sunshine indoors, long after the sun sets for the evening. I have been known to swap out my “winter art” for “summer art.” (And, no, there is no set standard for classification. It’s just a feeling.) Here comes the sun(shine) is a way of living, don’t you see? It’s a way of harnessing all that this season has to offer and sprinkling it all around.
Jaymee Srp creates original artwork, textiles and home goods with vintage inspiration under the umbrella Retro Menagerie. Srp’s simple, modern designs bring the perfect pop of color to any space that needs it. The Orange and Yellow Sunburst and the Aqua Ombre Mountain Range are particularly reminiscent of the perfect summertime sunset, don’t you think? I find myself thinking this set should be right inside my front door, so that I always remember that the sunshine is a living, breathing thing; a constant. Come to think of it, Retro Menagerie is chock full of constant inspiration, don’t you think?
