{Autumn Elegance}: A Palette of Fig, Light Plum, Antique Gold, Ivory + White

August 24, 2011

{Fig, Light Plum, Antique Gold, Ivory + White}

As we near the end of Summer, it seems to me that there are two schools of thought. Some people wouldn't love anything more than to hold onto Summer as long as they can - and then there are others, like myself, who more than welcome the change of season and everything that comes along with it. I think Fall has some of the prettiest palettes. And this one is no exception. Here lately I've really been attracted to shades of purple and I especially am loving this fig color. It's such an intense color and it really goes nicely with antique gold. {continued...}

Details We Love
Lovely Wedding Tables + Bridal Hairstyle


What I love most about this palette is the attention to detail. From the handmade dinner menus complete with antique gold ink, to the lovely table numbers, this palette has so many creative things going for it. I personally love how elegant this feels - the elegance is seen in the gorgeous china and the lace detailing on the bride's gown. Plus, who isn't loving the bride's whimsical and romantic hairstyle? I have to admit, I'm completely smitten with that sweet little hair flower.

I really like the color palette used here...kind of gives a subtle and serious look to the page.I think colors an be effectively used to make the page look where they belong...like this one looks feminine other combinations may look childish etc.

Beautiful images! I must admit to being one those people that are trying desperately to hang onto the last of summer but thanks to bloggers, I am starting to get excited about autumn! The warm rich colours, the slight misty chill in the air etc! Bring it on!

Mmmm, loooking that pretty, I think you are right in predicting Fig could be a big trend, I reckon it would work from just about any season depending where you put the emphasis on the palette!

I used this palette to inspire my wedding last October. I used it to help inspire me with this time consuming endeavour: http://pinterest.com/pin/24136547974532411

I got so many compliments and I couldn't have done it without the help of this beautiful palette of colours!
