Pastel Moods

The Book

What draws us to the cafes we visit, the buildings we live in? How does colour translate our personality via fashion pieces? How does natures’ own colour palette affect our mood?
Focusing on the colours most predominant in her work, each chapter explores a different colour tone, how it is used to speak to our psyche and what it evokes in us. Bathed in pastel hues, this book captures the deeper meaning behind how the colours we are surrounded by impact our mood.

Maria Vazquez’s photography proves that urban structures and daily routine can take on a dreamy, quixotic sentiment with the right contrasts. No matter where in the world she is, she can always find the same welcoming beauty in each town, city or country, in the form of colourful blossoms, buildings and details. Drawing upon colour psychology, Maria’s book Pastel Mood Pallets examine how each particular colour tone inspires certain states of mind, and how these reflect how we go about our life.


Pastel Mood Pallets walks us through photographer Maria Vazquez’ colour coded world, and the loudly unspoken sentiments she finds within. Broadening our awareness as to how our favourite colours speak to our subconscious, Maria reminds us that our choice of design, garments or urban environments rests on more than just sheer attraction.

Pastel Mood Pallets brings us a step closer to tuning in with our own, personal colour palette and the sentiments it is made up of.
