Board #46 | Left At Albuquerque

How about a board with a Southwest slant? Instead of going for burnt oranges and dusty reds, I thought I’d cool things down a bit with pale greens and blues, inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s trumpet flower. I also like the idea of an event that echoes the simple lines of its surroundings, and succulents add to the desert feel.

Mood: minimalist, natural
Palette: cool green, pale blue, chalky white
