A Late Summer Color Palette
November 27, 2007

I have actually come up with two completely different color palettes for Nicole...one a bit more subtle and romantic, one a bit more playful and lighthearted. Both using "vintage" chic as inspiration.

The first palette is a combination of deep purples, rose and cream.

I absolutely love this palette. It seems really organic and sophisticated. I think that working with colors that are muted and softened, creates a style that is more approachable and real. It seems natural to me, not contrived or over-styled. Accenting with deep golds and crystal brings a bit of sparkle to the look. And of course, candles as far as the eye can see.
