{Vintage Lovelies}: A Palette of Shades of Red + White


{Shades of Red + White}

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had an absolutely fabulous weekend. I'm feeling optimistic today and looking forward to a great week. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd kick things off by putting together a monochromatic color palette featuring shades of red and white. I don't know about you, but I've always been a huge fan of the color red. There have even been times that I've deemed this rich and vibrant shade my ''signature color.'' And while I would not consider red my all time favorite color, it's definitely in my top 5. {continued...}

Because what's not to love about red? There are just so many fun things you can do with this color. I especially love the color red in weddings when combined with a subtle vintage inspired theme. Nothing says classic like a pop of red. So tell me... do you find yourself fancying red? Maybe you're considering it for your wedding? Or perhaps you're like me in that you're more inclined to use it in your wardrobe or in your home?

Definitely my signature color–and funny enough, I was just talking about how anxious I feel using it for our wedding! If the day is half as lovely as this board, I will have succeeded!

Gorgeous! Red hot just in time for valentine's day!

Bonnie February 08, 2012

Red and white always reminds me of candy canes. Or Valentine's Day. That would be more appropriate for right now. But I like candy canes better.

Does it get any more classic than red? I just love it! Currenty donning a red mani and somehow it feel fresh amid all the neons and neutrals of the moment!

Lissa (The Wedding Bistro at Bellenza) February 09, 2012

Had always thought red was for more "daring" brides. But your lovely board shows how pops of it can actually be quite classic!
