August is the last month of Summer. August, however, has always felt to me like it ought to really be the beginning of Autumn. Perhaps it is simply in the sound of the word, August. August, to me, feels like colors faded in the sun. It feels like miles of clear blue sky, the sand, and the surf, cool water for days that are as yet still too warm though beginning to cool at night.
So, the accent colors for August are the sand and the sky.
