Colour palettes from the world’s most beautiful places

26 April 2018

Colour plays an extremely important role in our lives, influencing our mood and how we respond to our environment. Although we’re inspired everyday by the colour in our surroundings, Earth’s natural tones seem to spark the best creativity.

This is what prompted Expedia to select 10 of the most beautiful places from around the world and create colour palettes inspired by nature. From the greens of the Okavango Delta in Botswana to the whites and blue of Mount Cook in New Zealand,  these places provide brilliant colour inspiration to help you bring nature into your home.
