The Perfect Palette: {Color Your Wedding Beautiful}: Palettes I Love!

When it comes to helping you with your color conundrums, I'm your girl. Truth be told, reading my new palette requests in the morning is actually one of the greatest, most favorite parts of my day. Why, you ask? Well, that's because I get to hear from you! I hope you know and realize that there's nothing that puts a bigger smile on my face than receiving an email from a reader about how thankful they are for my help.

The simple truth is that helping you is what I L-O-V-E to do. It's what makes me tick. Want to know what else makes me tick? Yep, you guessed it, colors! Bright colors, soft colors, sweet colors, vintage colors, creative colors, and the list goes on... Today I'm sharing just a few of my favorite types of colors! What are your favorite colors?

Do you find yourself gravitating toward sweet colors like peaches and pinks?

Or maybe you'd rather surround yourself with a vintage color palette? What's a vintage palette you ask? Well, to me a vintage palette has very little real color and relies heavily on neutrals to do the story telling.

Or maybe you love creative colors. You know, strong color palettes that pop and make a bold + graphic statement. I love creative palettes because you often can easily incorporate fun details, like these old fashioned coca cola bottles for instance.

A timeless palette is one that won't ever go out of style. It's not trendy nor overpowering. It's not bold or in your face. It's simple, sweet and will never go out of style. For that reason, I love timeless color palettes.

What's better than timeless color? Simple color! You know, monochromatic palettes that come together effortlessly. Those are the type of palettes where it's hard to make a mistake. They're easy peasy and that's what makes them a winner in my book.

I'm also a huge fan of homespun elegance. You know, colors that you can easily use to bring your handcrafted and DIY projects to life! I love this jar centerpiece idea!

Another type of color I can never get enough of are unique colors. You know, the colors you don't often see every day? Like mint for instance. Mint is a color that I just added to the color palette here on The Perfect Palette and I can't wait to play around with it some more. Unique colors make me happy.

And lastly, I love charming colors. You know...colors that just have a way of making you feel good. Colors that allow you to easily incorporate charming details. Colors that exude a specialness that not all colors have. There's a world full of color out there and I, myself am learning and discovering new colors and new color palettes every day. And you want to know what? I feel so lucky to be able to share my color ideas with you on a daily basis! So tell me, what kind of colors make your heart skip a beat? Oh, and what colors would you like to see featured here that I don't have featured here already? We're only 3 away from having 50 colors in the color palette!
