Color Inspiration: August

For August’s color inspiration we’re featuring one of the most notable photographers of all time: Slim Aarons. This man was known for taking photos of “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” His work fully captures the affluent lives of celebrities and royals from all around the world in their vacation homes in Capri, Vale, even the iconic 60’s look in Palm Springs which is the exact direction we’re going in for today’s color inspiration.


This photo is full of so much life, charisma, and style. Slim Aarons’ shots are noted for being extremely symmetrical by balancing the background to the people at play. We love the natural blues and greens from the mountains and landscaping of the stunning home. And especially the pops of yellow from the umbrellas, flowers, and the woman in the front’s dress. The most amazing part of Slim Aaron’s work is that none of it is staged. He simply followed them around while vacationing or doing events and was able to capture some of the most stunning architecture, fashion, and nature that the world has ever seen. His work is like most other famous artists where they were not really favored during the time. But in the past decade, art enthusiasts have needed a b eater insight on these eras. And thankfully we’ve had someone like this that was able to unlock this world that many of us never even knew we wanted to be apart of.

This shot is titled “Poolside Glamour,” this is one of his most popular photographs. It covers the stunning desert home built by Richard Neutra for Edgar J. Kaufmann in 1946-1947 You can view the Kaufman House here to fully understand its beauty and architectural design.

As always, this post was made with the help of Sherwin Williams Color App to determine the color matches.
