We first shared this palette back in April of And surprisingly a lot of you really adored this palette and thought that it was a lot of fun. I have to admit, I can definitely see why! This palette is just bursting at the seems with fun energy! It's modern, it's sophisticated and quite frankly, it's really quite hip! Yep, I said it, hip! So what do you think? Is this unexpected palette catching your eye? Are you surprised by the way these colors look side by side? I think this color palette was one of the most surprising for me because it's one that I would never have thought would have a chance at looking pretty.

{Color Tip:} When using contrasting colors, decide on one primary color and one color to use more sparingly to contrast. In this case we see a little more green than we do orange, which creates a fun & dynamic visual}

So I came to your page to say thanks for the comment. But WOW, I love this color palette. I have always thought of Fuschia and Navy as my color palette. But I am really feeling this one.
