Board #464 | Black Slate and Spring

Doesn’t this green remind you of the tiny leaf buds that start popping out in early spring? Inspired by this stunning photo of Vera Wang‘s green dress, I thought black slate (a sort of chalkboard gray) and leaf bud green would be a lovely and unexpected Spring palette, and a nice choice for the first inspiration board of March. It has a slightly modern feel that balances sweetly romantic details like bows and springerle cookies and vines, and I think it could work in a wide range of venues from an historic estate to an industrial loft.

Mood: romance with a modern twist
Palette: black slate, pastel spring green, cream white
