There's really no limit to what designer Summer Thornton can do to transform a space. So when she posted a photo of her mood board for a current project at a boutique hotel, followers swooned...not surprisingly.

With a gorgeous natural color palette of yellows, greens, golds, and pale blue, her pictures and samples are giving me inspiration. Perhaps the clipping that stood out most, however, is the one of a younger Queen Elizabeth. Will the hotel have some English flair?

Sadly, though—other than the color palette and clear vision—Summer's hotel project is still a bit of a mystery. "Too bad I can't tell you anything about it," she teased, using #shhh and #itsasecret to further hype up the upcoming reveal.

Based on her color choices and the caption, which reads "This hotel is gonna be bananas," now I'm wondering whether the hotel is located somewhere tropical—or, at the very least, warm! Either way, it's definitely somewhere I want to go as soon as possible. Between Summer's designs and me wanting to take a much-needed vacation, I'm ready to book an extended trip there immediately.
