About the Design
The summer weather has been hotter than hot, but nothing distracts me more than imagining myself on the sand, listening to crashing waves and feeling the sea-salty breeze. The beach lends an endless amount of inspiration, from tropical hues to grungy sand textures. Here, I used a combination of water texture and bright, summery tones (a color palette I borrowed from design blog Design Sponge ) to create a fun and relaxed design.
The type featured is the ever lovely Archer.
I hope you enjoy this nautically inspired wallpaper calendar for August!
