Color inspired.....

Color!

What a deep and mysterious language,

the language of dreams.

~Paul Gaugin

































A vibrant and saturated
celebration of the
colors of Mexico...
Un-shy.

I think I've been to a couple of these places ~ that second photo looks like Casa Luna in San Miguel de Allende. These photos make me want to hop on the plane and head on down to Mexico.

**Zzzzzzz** Oh! Sorry. I fell asleep in the white lounge chair with the breeze caressing me, while watching the wave run from the island to the shore and back. Thank you for the sweet dream!

That indigo blue is just absolutely captivating!

When I was much younger (and white on white was all the rage in CA) I thought that the Mexican use of so much color was garish but now I love it and see the wisdom of it. Bring it on!

Amy said...

What's your favorite color then, Linda? What makes you physically relax when you see it (color-wise, come on, now!)?

simpledaisy said...

Love the image of the chaise loungers overlooking the ocean! Oh..how I would love to be there!!!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Amy...My fave color is a mangoey persimmon. My foyer is that color...our guest house...and the inside of the pool area too (overkill). It soothes my soul, and I see it all over Mexico and South America.

You???

Joyce said...

I could get lost and no one would find me! I love the colors and the sooo... many places to hide. LOL... xoxo

I find those colors soothing. Whether bright or more subtle, color is refreshing. That first photo, that bright blue, that's my color, girl!

Amy said...

Mine is the aqua-green of the ocean. It has a physiological effect on me. Instantly I feel better.
