It’s Australia Day this coming Saturday and the Aussie in me feels like a celebration is in order! I haven’t been home in such a long time for Australia Day, I really miss enjoying a sunny day out with my friends giggling, laughing and getting jiggy with it over a good old sausage sizzle and a few beers. Seeing as I won’t be spending Australia Day in the most Aussiest of ways, I decided to put together an Australia Day inspired inspiration board to get me a little closer to home. I’m really excited about this board because it’s the first of Simply Peachy’s revamped inspiration boards for 2013! It’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for some time now so I’m rather proud that I’m able to tick this off my list of resolutions. Yay! You can also now easily access all of Simply Peachy’s inspiration boards in the right side banner of the website by clicking on the “Inspiration Board” link.
I hope you love this colour pairing as much as I do! Red and blue makes for a lively colour palette that just screams celebration. With the right combination of the different tones of red and blue, it makes for an romantic, sweet and elegant palette. I find it’s also a little bit vintage but with a modern twist. I love it and think it’d be great for couples looking for a sweet and vibrant colour scheme. If you’re not a huge fan of how vibrant navy blue and red can be, tweak it a bit and tone it done just like I did in the board.
Happy Australia Day in advance! I hope all you Aussie peachies have something awesome planned for Australia Day wherever you are!
