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

{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.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free.

Web Development Los Angeles August 25, 2011

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 this one looks feminine other combinations may look childish etc.

natasha {schue love} August 25, 2011

Gosh, I love the bridal hair! So romantic!

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!
