United Colors of Wimbledon

Billie Weiss/AELTC
Every time I watch professional tennis I get inspired.  I like the game, the preppy style, the colors, the atmosphere, the sportsmanship, the fanfare and the athletes.  The height of all this tennis inspiration happens for me at Wimbledon.

At Wimbledon the mix of colors are classic and fresh.  Working together are green, purple, white, navy, gold and silver.  The players have to wear all WHITE, the court is grass GREEN, the brand logo is GREEN and PURPLE, the ball kids wear a NAVY uniform and the trophies are mixed metals, GOLD and SILVER.

Sprinkle in the rainbow of colors coming from the audience, the shine of the sun, the blue sky and an exciting yellow tennis ball and I am left completely inspired.  So I went searching for interiors with these United Colors of Wimbledon and created a collection! (Stay to the end of this post to see a different and more important inspiration.)

And there's more where those came from, I created a Pin board called United Colors of Wimbledon if you're digging these colors.
Djokovic: You Live For This Moment
Before you go, there was something more importantly inspirational than the colors of this past Wimbledon.  It was the Champion of the "Gentlemen's" Final, Novak Djokovic.  Did you watch the match last Sunday?  It was EPIC!  Djokovic beat my favorite player, Roger Federer, after an amazing and entertaining fight.  Regardless of winning or runner-up-ing I am always impressed with the humility of tennis players and Djokovic didn't disappoint.  If you're inspired by honestly and vulnerability, watch the first 2 minutes his post champ interview.  The #1 tennis player in the world shares how he went to the restroom mid-game and had a "chat to himself" to overcome the mental game.  Love it!
