Board #341 | Mustard and Blue

I’ve had this photo of the yellow dress in my mind ever since I first saw it on The City Sage – are you as in love with yellow as I am? It certainly brightens dreary winter days…

Mood: sweetly sophisticated
Palette: mustard yellow, powdery blue, cream

    Ooh, I love it! Such a great color combo, light and fresh. I’m glad I’ve been locked into my color scheme for awhile, otherwise I’d constantly be changing things up ;)

    That J. Crew clutch is A to the Dorable. They do such great stuff.

    Loving these spring colors, Kathryn!

    oh my goodness, you’re psychic!
    I am designing a new suite based on this color combination. I love it!

  • People St.Clair says:

    This has become one of my favorite color combinations. Thank you for the lovely board.

  • citysage says:

    That Twig photo is definitely one of my all time favourites—and you’ve done it justice with this board! What a fresh and beautiful take on this color combo. It makes me long for spring!

    My favourite thing about the photo—other than the gorgeous colors—is wondering why the dress is hanging in that stunning bathroom. Is there a lovely lady somewhere, just waiting for her bath to be drawn so she can get ready for a romantic evening on the town? That’s when you know a photo is great: when it has the power to set your imagination running!

    Thanks for the link love Kathryn :)

  • Sheva says:

    Oooh yay! This is the color combo that I am using for my wedding. Seeing it all put together on this board is so exciting!

  • OK..too crazy. I was thinking about this exact color combo last night! I was watching Mad Men and there was a room with the blue wall and mustard yellow balloon. All I kept thinking about was – what a great color combo! So quite happy to see this today. Love it.

  • Veniae says:

    I was wondering if anyone knows the designer of that yellow dress? Mustard is my favourite colour and I really think that could be my future wedding dress. The (beautiful) site the picture came from was unfortunately unhelpful.

  • Caitlin says:

    This is so lovely. It reminds me of the French Countryside for some reason.

  • chelsea says:

    oooh! my ross, $14.99 shoes made the board! (i promise i’ll stop bragging about them one of these days… ) beautiful, beautiful board, by the way! makes me want to sip a mimosa by poolside.

  • Smomo says:

    I love this colour combination, I may well use it for a hen party/ bridal shower I’m doing for a friend

  • that photo is so gorgeous – i love love love that dress. and, on another note, if i were planning a wedding i think i would have a huge problem choosing which of your lovely inspiration boards to base my color scheme on. they’re all so fantastic!

  • ABC Dragoo says:

    Blue with yellow is by far my VERY favorite color combination ever! This is one lovely board.

  • That Girl says:

    Looking through your yellow inspiration boards has made me fall in love with it! A color I never thought I would like.


  • Hannah says:

    Beautiful, may I use this board as a cake design inspiration and post it on by blog – I will link it back to you of course!

  • perfect bound says:

    I saw a woman on the train last night dressed in this same color palette and thought, what a lovely combination. Your board is once again amazing!

  • Cheryl at says:

    This is an awesome color combination! My jaw dropped when I saw this board. So inspiring!

  • Kristen says:

    Lovely color combination! I was wondering if anyone knows who makes the yellow shoes in the center. I’ve been looking for a pair just like them!

  • Lily says:

    These are my two FAVORITE colors and I always wondered if it would be possible to have a sweet wedding that incorperated them both. You just showed me it's possible. Love it!!
