July Musings: BURNT

Updated: Jul 1, 2023

Welcome to our first installment of RDCO'S monthly musings! Here you will find our tried-and true favorites that we can't wait to share with you all.

There is no doubt that all of us at Rebel Design Collective are crushing on bright hues to take us through the month of July. The promise of warm summer days ahead have inspired us to think coastal, with nautical tones of burnt orange and navy. Our July collection: Burnt, draws inspiration from the sun and water, through fashion, decor, and delicious provisions that are sure to spark impromptu dinners among friends and summer days spent on the water.

Sun & Water

July beckons vibrant pops of burnt orange hued tones set over dreamy navy blues to take you through some of the hottest days of summer! Enjoy our Sun & Water musings for the month of July, which includes our most coveted picks for clothing, accessories, and beauty.

There is nothing that shouts vacation (or a staycation) quite like a canvas tote, sun hat, and sunglasses! We paired this trio with a sleek leather slide, whimsical charms, and a chic day to night shawl to keep you warm on those coastal summer evenings. To top the night off, slip into our favorite zinnia pajama set to end the perfect beach day.

Starting the day with solar protection is a MUST, followed up by a luxurious face oil and tangerine lip balm to keep the hydration flowing. If you're dreaming of coastal summer days, apply a spritz of Sel Marin, to instantly transport you to the South of France with marine notes of bergamot, sea salt, and sea grass. Add in rich hues with a smoldering red lip and a vibrant terracotta nail to elevate your July look.


Creating an at-home oasis to fully escape the scorching summer heat is essential (and requires no travel!) Fill your space with vibrant hues of deep blue textiles, ceramics, and accessories to complement pops of burnt orange and neutral tones to cary out throughout the summer.

When we think of summer dwelling at home, creating a mood that incorporates seasonal tones is a must. We were so inspired by the burnt orange color palette, which signifies vibrancy and health. There is something so satisfying in a fresh summer glow after a day spent in the sun. We want to reflect that vibrancy in the home through linen textures and bold patterns (think gingham, checkers and stripes) and, of course, it would not be a summer refresh without weathered terracotta ceramics and woven rattan accessories.

When the outdoors become unbearable, it is so important to set the mood in-doors with light fragrances to cary you throughout the heat. Our RDCO team loves zesty citrus and refreshing sea salt to restore vibrancy during these dog days of summer.

Dining Al Fresco

At RDCO, we are always craving seasonal bites! We don't need an excuse to whip up a spontaneous meal that hits on both the savory and sweet palette. When putting together Burnt, we felt that nothing says summer quite like dining al fresco. Whether it be an evening out on the patio with friends and family, or packing bites for a day of tastings around regional Lodi Wineries. We will be keeping these summer dining essentials and provisions in rotation throughout July and well into the end of summer.

We love an impromptu dinner on balmy evenings filled with fresh and simple seasonal meals. Whether your summer dining includes a lobster bake with friends, or solo evenings with wine and oysters in hand, we can't help but gush over whimsical tea towels (we love a sardine print!), woven baskets and vibrant drink ware to accompany your fête.

Looking for a simple spread? Bring out the savory provisions such as lemon infused fleur de sel to top off oysters accompanied by a chilled wine. If your pallete begs for more sea, incorporate exquisite olive oil and lemon infused sardines to enjoy on crusty bread. We love to balance out the brine with a gorgeous tart citrus cocktail (or mocktail!) to elevate any summer soirée. Throw on your favorite playlist to set the vibe, (were loving the Vendredi Sur Mer radio on Spotify) and soak in these warm summer nights.

Burnt is truly all about soaking in all of the gorgeous treasures that July has to offer us. We hope that you've enjoyed our first Monthly Musings, and that we've inspired your summer mood. Cheers to a month filled with nautical indulgences!
