When someone says SUMMER, one immediately thinks of.. Tropical beaches? Busy nightlife? Clear swimming pools? Colourful cocktails? Hawaiian shirts?
When I started thinking about Summer this year, the first mood that came to my mind was the simplest possible. White sand beaches, white-washed buildings, light dresses, clear blue sea. Lots of white and sunlight and space. Silence and emptiness around to disconnect from our busy lives and just rest. Summer stripped-down to the bone.
I had fun putting together a moodboard for this particular Summer Mood to try and recreate the look and feel of what I had in mind. Then I hauled everything in the car, stole some things in the house here and there and styled a small set in the living room of our summer house. I was very sad when I had to dismantle it.
Per me l’estate – o almeno uno dei tanti mood dell’estate – è il più minimal possibile. Penso a spiagge di sabbia bianca, edifici di intonaco bianco, alberi di ulivo, vestiti ampi e leggeri, acque cristalline, materiali naturali come terracotta, vimini, pietra. Un’estate ridotta al minimo, per lasciare spazio a riposo e pensieri.
I still have a loong way to go when it comes to moodboarding (it definitely is way harder than it looks), but if practice makes perfect, I am more than willing to learn! On the other hand, I am quite good at (i.e. spend a lot of time) Pinterest-boarding. So! If you like this summer mood and would like some more inspiration, you could take a look at the Stripped-down Summer board on my Pinterest page.
What is your idea of summer? What does immediately come to your mind?
Il moodboarding e lo styling qui sopra sono esperimenti che mi sono divertita a fare per tradurre in concreto le immagini che avevo in testa. Per un’immersione virtuale in questo summer mood, invece, vi invito a dare un’occhiata alla board dedicata sulla mia pagina Pinterest. Spero che troviate ispirazione per riflettere sul mood che vorreste avesse la vostra estate o per decorare un angolo di casa, o chissà per le prossime vacanze, o semplicemente per sognare ad occhi aperti..
