Inspiration Board # 85: Plum, Slate Gray, Black, Light Pink

February 23, 2009

{Plum, Slate Gray, Black, Light Pink & Cranberry}

This palette is simply gorgeous. Again, I have to admit that this color palette made me reconsider my own color palette-but since I've already ordered the save the dates in orange-I will have to live vicariously through the bride to be-Nicole. Nicole wrote to me and told me that she wanted the wedding and reception to be romantic, but modern with a bit of a vintage feel. She admitted that she is not into bright, springy colors. She said she was more drawn to deep eggplant, black, ivory, grays, and pale pinks but she was not sure how to work with these in the spring without them feeling too "heavy." In my design, I incorporated the perfect balance of all of her favorite colors. Perfect for the vintage vibe-this palette is definitely not heavy at all. Vibrant? Yes. Heavy-not so much :)

These are my colours! Purple and red with pale pink flowers and the groom in grey. And it's the first time I've seen them combined anywhere outside of my own scrapbooking - I hadn't seen them together in a moodboard, inspiration shoot, etc. But - gah - I can't seem to view the moodboard. Help?! *dies of curiosity*
