Every season we find ourselves curating new favorites in our lives. Whether it’s a book we’re enjoying, a hobby we’re navigating or a home purchase that catches our every time we walk by, these picks always rise to the top. As things do, we’ll move on eventually but right now, these nine items are our summer 2015 favorites. We can’t get enough of their color, shape, pattern and uses, to name a few.

For as long as we can remember we’ve been pulling color palettes from eye-catching photos. We’ve got folders, magazine clippings, Polaroids and snapshots strewn on our literal and digital desktops just waiting to be utilized for their genius use of color. As of now, though, our new favorite avenue for color influence is Instagram. Looking through our recent posts, we’ve pulled five color stories that we just can’t get enough of. Our desktops are starting to clear up a bit but our liked photos and account follows on Instagram so no sign of slowing down. Any accounts we should be following? Drop us a line, we’d love to hear about them.
