Inspiration Board # 165: Slate Gray, Orange, Mango & Red

March 18, 2009

{Slate Gray, Orange, Burnt Orange & Red}

Slate gray & orange paired with a little mango and cranberry....Quite refreshing now isn't it? This is the spring palette that I created custom for bride to be Theresa. The bride wrote to me and told me that her reception would take place on the 3rd level of a tapas bistro and that they had decided to serve sangria as their "signature" drink. She admitted that although their wedding date does fall during spring time, she really wasnt a fan of the pastel look. She said she was more partial to fall colors & she could really use some inspiration. The inspiration for my design comes straight from sangria. Just look at those vibrant colors! Slate gray was added in to give this palette a splash of sophistication and a bird motif was used to make a clever reference to spring time.
