Board #474 | Hot Pink & India Ink

Can you think of another color that’s more fun than hot pink? Pair it with ink black, and it becomes utterly cool, and even a little sexy. I mean, how fabulous would a bride look in Jennifer Behr‘s sassy headband? This palette certainly lends itself to a more modern look, but here it takes on a vintage/retro vibe.

Mood: vintage sexy cool
Palette: hot pink and India ink

    Hot pink rocks! Especially combined with black or dark grey. I love, say, a black cocktail dress with a hot pink belt or shoes.
    Those peonies are absolutely fantastic.

  • Ms. Wife of the Year says:

    Very sexy. Not sure that I would have the guts, but I like it.

  • Michele says:

    So pretty! I especially like how this board combines hot pink and black in a more vintage way instead of so overly modern. I love it.

  • Anni {Lovely in Love} says:

    I have to say, this is the first time I have ever seen hot pink and black on a wedding inspiration board and liked them. I agree with @Michele, they're usually so modern and not to my taste at all. This one is so fun!

  • Leslee Mitchell says:

    Now this looks great. When I first read the tweet and thought hot pink+black I wasn't sure I'd like it. But I really like what I see. Very well done.

  • Nicole* says:

    Oh perfect! As an MOH, I am hosting a lingerie party and have themed it black and hot pink with DIY invites and decor! and I love the black chalkboard paint idea :)

  • Laura says:

    I love your boards. They really make my day and this one is no exception! I agree with Michele I like the vintage style combo of pink and black. Very fun.

  • Alison says:

    Awesome! Truthfully, a color combo that i'm totally OVER seeing… it's been done in entirely the wrong way but your inspiration board did it just the RIGHT way :)

    Fabulous job!

  • Ellen says:

    Love the feel of this inspiration board and just the right dose of pink too!

  • Angela says:

    Does anyone know where I can find the dress in the upper right hand corner?
