Color Inspiration: Blizzard 2011

February 4, 2011

…With Denise, of Bellis Studios!

I’m back with more color inspiration for the week. This is the time of year that many brides are planning for their upcoming spring and summer weddings. Well, Mother Nature decided to throw her own party here in the Midwest and we woke up to a winter wonderland. How could I not use that as my inspiration this week’s post?

I started with the silvery blue in the ring shown above that I found here on Pinterest. I built my palette around that, adding a touch of eggplant for interest. With winter whites, you can keep things simple and elegant while you let Mother Nature add the magic.

Color Inspiration: Honeysuckle

January 28, 2011

With Denise, of Bellis Studios!

Hello everyone! This is Denise, from Bellis Studios. Jaime has invited me to do a few guest posts on one of my favorite things, color. To kick things off, I picked Pantone’s 2011 color of the year: Honeysuckle (Pantone 18-2120). It’s a bright pink, with lots of red in it.

Admittedly, I was a little surprised by it at first. Why would Pantone pick such a bright color? According to Pantone, “Energizing honeysuckle lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life’s ongoing challenges.” If you think about it, it really makes sense. This recession has been going on forever and we’re all ready for some spirit lifting!

I teamed honeysuckle up with an equally confident color, snapdragon (Pantone 14-0827). I think they play quite nicely together!

You can read more about Pantone’s 2011 color of the year here.

If you like the dresses shown in my inspiration board, you can find them at The Dessy Group. They carry all sorts of styles in Pantone colors like honeysuckle and snapdragon.

After working with this gorgeous color, I had to design an invitation using it. A touch of snapdragon yellow and soft natural green accents. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding! If you’re interested in this design, let me know and I’ll make up some comps. You can find me over at Bellis Studios.

Thank you Jaime for allowing me to guest post. I’ll be back next Friday with more color inspiration!
