Board #392 | Old-Fashioned Garden

Yes, I know – we’ve already covered how much I love green and white, and whenever I’m feeling pressed for a color palette, I challenge myself to make a green and white inspiration board that looks new. I’m not sure if this succeeds at that, but I sure do love the various shades here, and the old fashioned garden look. For any of you who are struggling with choosing wedding colors, I suggest that you strongly consider this simple palette. It will work in almost any venue, every season, and it can be made to look however you like, from romantic to traditional to sleek and modern.

Mood: old-fashioned garden romance
Palette: bottle green, olive, chalk
