Color Palette - Brick & Orange
June 19, 2008

I am in love with this brick red and orange color palette, with hints of olive green. It's rustic and casual, but with a few sophisticated details could be completely transformed into an elegant affair...


Original Image by Michele Michael, Oranges by Fiore Designs, Tablescape Image by Lori O'Toole, Flowes by Rosenow Floral, Dress by Maggie London at Nordstrom

I chose the Michele Michael image on the top left because it just seems like the perfect marriage of chic and country. I can completely envision a wedding out on an old farm, tables adorned with a lighter pink linen (just like in the center/right image), florals that are a blend of oranges, deep reds and olive greens, and maids that are pretty but sophisticated in a wine colored gown. I love the end effect. You could really dress this up with a hodge podge of vintage glassware, rimmed in gold and tons of votive candles.
