Still on the Hunt for the Perfect Palette?

In a world that is bursting at the seems with color, I often find it difficult to find a palette that I don't adore! Maybe it's because I appreciate so many colors or maybe it's because I have the ability to see the potential in most all palettes? Whatever the case is...one thing is for certain! I see in color. I'm a visual person. And when I find an image I love, I become attached. And so I save these images, like the photo hoarder that I am... Always with the hope that I will get around to incorporating said photos into my palettes. {continued...}

Who isn't loving this cool gray-blue color and how it contrasts with these brighter shades?

Oh, and just look at how the brightness of these red cherries is perfectly accented with black, white and shades of aqua and green. I'm absolutely loving this one!


Shades of green and yellow pair together effortlessly with neutrals such as latte and camel. Don't you think?

Oh, and what's not to love about how these shades of yellow are playing off these shades of teal and gray?


Well, the truth is that some photos are special. So special, in my opinion, that they don't need any further explanation. Not too long ago I started a series of color palettes that showcase simply one photo. Not ten, not five, not three. Just one. And so today I wanted to share with you a few more of these. They're simple and to me they speak volumes about where and how color palettes are born. Your typical palette is simply composed of a few colors and a couple of neutrals. Easy peasy, don't you think? So tell me? What colors are you finding yourself gravitating towards here lately? Are you a yellow gal at heart? Or maybe you're more drawn to the oh-so girly colors like pink for instance?
