Color Inspiration: Sunday Funday in Belize

Belize color palette by Eyes Of Style

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to try out a new bar for “Sunday Funday”. Palapa bar is within walking distance from our place at Grand Caribe, and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you ever find yourself on Ambergis Caye! The watermelon cocktail(s) I drank did not disappoint. Made with real watermelon and local rum, it was not only a tasty drink, but a pretty one too!

I took this picture on the second story of the bar, that’s located on a dock over the Carribbean. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon! I was inspired by the colors of the Caribbean against my nice cool watermelon drink, so of course, the designer in me needed to create a color palette from the image. I’m loving these colors- how about you?!
