From enjoying warm summer days out on the beach with family and friends, to taking in the serene summer evening sunsets; coastal environments tend to hold fond memories among many of us. The dying glow of the fading sun, whilst waves crash against the pristine golden sands, help create the perfect environment to be inspired from.

A strong array of rich and vibrant colours, to some the city is a concrete jungle, with a combination of a variety of easy greys, to cooler greys reflecting the urban aspect of the skyscrapers and landmarks all around. Others may reflect the more laid back aspects of city life with undisturbed and beautiful natural views. With strong blocks of bright colours, including strong accent shades, such as rich oranges and deep blues, cities are full of vibrancy and colour.

Strong contrasting colours can help add intrigue to a room. Available from Rakuten.

About

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
