{Twist & Shout}: Shades of Orange, Black + White

March 31, 2011

{Burnt Orange, Orange, Peach, Black & White}

Although I'm typically drawn to creating designs that lean towards a more vintage feel, sometimes it's really fun to create a palette with a modern look in mind. You may think of orange and black as being a palette reserved for Halloween, but I think if done right, you can pull this palette off during any season of the year. The trick with this palette is that you want to keep black to a bare minimum. Only using it for the guy's tuxes for example. While the rest of the palette is kept light and airy with fun punches of color splashed throughout. Some of the ideas I'm loving for this wedding include the modern & sophisticated design created for the reception space. I mean who is not loving those fun lanterns? {continued...}

Party Lanterns & Newlyweds in Love
Notice how the table design is kept very minimalistic? Some other fun ideas are sprinkled throughout including a button escort card display which creates a playful visual as well as those fun flags that the newlyweds are holding. I've never seen that idea before! Throw in some fun prints including the incorporation of newspaper clippings plus those great orange and white stripes, and you have the makings of a playful yet sophisticated modern soiree. So what do you think? Are you loving this palette?

I agree with Samantha, how the heck am I going to choose a color palette. There are so many fun ones here on The Perfect Palette.

I am loving how soft this palette feels in the featured wedding! I love how the peach & white are the prominent colors and just a hint of the sharper burnt orange & black are used.

Eeep!! Love this. It's like a variation of my own wedding palette :) Perf!

Diana said...

Love the laterns and the orange bouquet. Orange and black can really be chic. :) Happy Weekend.

As to not veer into Halloween territory, the peach is extremely necessary! That said, I am loving the entire combo - and black must be used sparingly!

Dori said...

Seriously fun! Loving all the details.

While I have to agree with you that I am drawn more to palettes that have a vintagey feel to them, I love the cheefullness of this palette! You are absolutely right ~ the key is to keep black to a minimum...and the peach helps soften the orange! And lanterns...I do love lanters ;-)))

Orange and black are definitely everyday colors for me. In my gemstone/sterling silver jewelry, I use shades of orange by itself, but most often, I use orange to light up gemstone combos with i. e. ruby/red/pink colors. Blackened silver is also a great way to set off beautiful gemstone colors. Your color palette is very beautiful! Thank you for featuring my canrnelian/oxidized silver earrings :)

Mary said...

This is beautiful! By far my favorite color palette. :) :)

Molly Garrison said...

Wow, oranges and white with black accents...a halloween-y wedding, but very classy. If I were getting married in october, I would definitely use this color scheme! Great ideas. Thanks!
