Board #296 | Paint a Rainbow

I know that so many of you are probably tired of brown as an accent color, but what about when it’s accenting an array of bright, fun colors? Often, a multi-colored palette can seem garish, or silly, or any number of unflattering things, but there are ways to make it work. I hope that this inspiration board proves that!

Mood: playful, bright
Palette: espresso, aqua, lemon, orange, fuchsia

    Playful and very pretty! It somehow reminds me of my childhood… I’m especially loving that truffle cake!

  • Jana says:

    This makes me happy. This is what I did at my own wedding. I couldn’t make up my mind on two or three colors so I cose several. I had so many comments about it, and I just love how bright and happy the look was. My wedding wasn’t anything compared to some of the creative masters you display, but I love it, and all the details that some people never noticed.

  • this is one of my favorite board’s you’ve done. how can you not just smile when you see such bright, fun colors?!?

  • Bri and Adam says:

    As a faithful Snippet and Ink reader, I’m happy to see my feet on a board! I’ve seen the multi-color wedding done horribly…but this would be quite lovely!

    I was catching up on blog reading and was so excited to see this board. This is the color palette we are going with for our wedding – minus the espresso. Although seeing this wonderful board makes me think about it…
