There’s so much beauty to be found in the world, so why not use it as inspiration? Artists and designer throughout history have learned from and used color palettes from nature itself to create their masterpieces and you can too, whether aiming for an ambitious piece of art or simply picking a color scheme for your new kitchen.
To help you get some inspiration, Expedia has picked out 10 of the most beautiful places in the world and created color palettes from them that you can use however you like. At the very least you can get some ideas for where you next want to go on vacation!
The iconic scenery comes from all over the world, including places like the Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia and the Okavango Delta in Botswana, both offering an extraordinary range of colors along with breathtaking views. Some of the locations offer seasonal bursts of color, like the rich purples of Provence in France when the lavender is in full bloom during the summer months.
Others offer colors and sights that are created and destroyed again each year, like the glacial ice caves of Vatnajökull in Iceland which melt away only to return the next year in stunning blues, greys, and purples.
Nature is often at its most creative when it comes to rock formations, and Bryce Canyon in Utah has all kinds of colors on display in its amphitheater.
Some of them require an extra effort to see in person, like the Benagil Cave in Portugal, which requires you to either rent a kayak or go swimming in the sea to get to its indoor beach to enjoy the views and the contrast between the blue skies and orange cave walls.
But you can enjoy the colors and sights from your own home thanks to this list from Expedia. Which colors are capturing your imagination so far?
