Color Palette of the Week: Evening Ride

Reading Time: 2 minutes

An evening bike ride in Bonn produces a gorgeous picture… and a great color palette. How will you use it?


One of the great things about spring is that I can bring my bike out and, unless rain is forecast, and take it for a ride.

I discovered biking last summer, and have not looked back since. But our winters are rainy and chilly, and wearing glasses does not make riding in the rain that safe or even practical.

But now that the sun is here at least a little more often, I can again enjoy the wind on my face and exercise while seeing to my transportation needs.

This beautiful photo expresses a joy and a love of biking that’s hard to describe in words… so here it is.

I love how the dark turquoise seamlessly transforms into the most beautiful shades of yellow. This is the kind of colors you expect from the ocean, not a sunset picture, and yet here we are.

This palette is balanced between cool and warm shades. Turquoise and yellow make a beautiful match, especially when mediated by a bit of green.

How can I use Evening Ride?

The palette of Evening Ride is perfectly balanced for any room of the house. The best fit, in my opinion, would be a bathroom. The colors can be linked to water and the ocean, and provide a soothing yet joyful (thanks to the yellow) space for relaxing times in the bath.

An understated living room could also do well in these shades. The colors are subtle and can be used in layers, highlighting any accessories or furniture you choose to add.

What do you think?

I think this must be one of my favourite palettes yet. The colors just seamlessly fit with each other.
