{Milk + Honey}: A Palette of Shades of Yellow + White

{Shades of Yellow, Camel + White}

When I think of the perfect Summer wedding, I often find myself gravitating towards yellow. Maybe it's because yellow reminds me of sunshine? Or maybe it's just because I feel like yellow THE feel good color that encompasses everything I love about Summer? I suppose what I love most about Summer is that light-hearted and carefree feeling that only Summer brings. And do you blame me for wishing that it was possible to bottle that feeling up and take it with me right into the Winter months? So I guess it’s really no surprise that today’s inspiration board is easy going and totally simple. A sweet palette of yellow + white that incorporates a very subtle honeybee theme and a lovely old fashioned swing in a sweet country setting. Sounds like a delightful way to spend the day to me.

Details We Love
Newlyweds in Love + Beeswax Candle Favors

So what do you think? Is anyone else a fan of the color yellow like I am? I for one happen to think that this palette strikes the perfect balance between fun + elegance. It's charming details like these beeswax candles and this lovely swing shot that really stand out to me. Charming, sweet and full of romance, this palette is perfect in my book.

I love the name of the palette..."Milk & Honey", so darn cute! It's sweet and soft with just the right amount of color to make for an elegant honeybee, end of summer theme.

such a pretty board, Chrissy! i feel the same way about yellow !

Alicia@CharityWedding August 22, 2011

Your palette was strangely perfect today. I told Kyle that I wanted to potentially paint my office yellow and as this isn't a color I would generally pick, he wasn't convinced it was a good idea. I told him a lighter yellow mixed with browns would be ideal and then I said I'll find him an example. So I came here and this was your palette! Love it!

Melina August 22, 2011

Yellow is a color I never favored but somehow always altered my mood for the better! I do love yellow just for the happiness it conveys!

Sarah {A Paper Proposal} August 22, 2011

LOVE yellow! Used it in my own wedding :) Love those pretty yellow dahlias up in the corner!


One can go so wrong with the kind of yellow- this would be the perfect one!
