Palette:  concrete gray, pink adobe, chalk white, cast iron black

One of the things I love most about this color palette is that it’s equal parts romantic and modern – not too sweet, not too dramatic or bold. It would make for a beautiful wedding – perhaps in winter or spring? Something that I enjoy about these color boards is that the images in them don’t just convey a flat palette, they also express texture and depth. Even for those of you who don’t consider yourselves particularly design-minded, how would you translate this color board into a wedding (or other project)?

    So chic, so gorgeous, yet so unexpected. I love the feeling just from the few images you paired and the colors. You have such a gift for combing color and small details to create such inspiring, creative and unique boards that really tell a story or capture a feeling. xoxo

    I don’t know how this would work, since I am assuming the images in your color boards are probably not pictures you have the rights to….but have you ever thought about selling your color boards as prints? They would be lovely as framed artwork in people’s homes! :) I would love to hang them on my walls!

    Gorgeous! I like the texture of the concrete shower- it looks like leaves, especially when juxtaposed to the reflection of plants in the open window.

    It’s very easy to find out any matter on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this website.
