color palette no. 20Good afternoon friends!  Today I am sharing with you another color palette.  I picked this image because I love the creamy pink with the pop of rich black.  And, I just want to crawl in that bed and take a nap.

Happy Monday!

color palette no. 19Hello and happy Friday! Today I wanted to share another color palette with you.  Aren’t good color combinations so inspiring!?  Lately, I have had color on my brain as I have been trying to decide the colors for our nursery.  It is just so hard to choose!  Right now I am leaning towards peach + white + natural wood.

I choose this image for my color palette because I love the soft blush tones in the background combined with the mustard yellow couch!  Stunning!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Thursday friends!  How is your week going?  Ours has been a little crazy, but I’m excited because tonight we are headed to a fun backyard party with Jonathan’s Wisconsin relatives!  And, I have a yummy peach and plum cobbler baking in the oven to take to the party!  I plan to share the recipe soon!

Today I have another color palette for you!  Some of the hues in this palette are similar to last weeks but there are some other fabulous colors too!  I am just dying over this outfit, and the beautiful coral color!  Have a great day!

Good morning!  How is your week going so far?  Last night Jonathan and I went to a local movie theater in East Town, and saw The Way Way Back.  Have you heard of it?  It was a really good movie!  I loved it!

Today I have another color palette for you!  I came across this picture, and just had to post it!  I love everything — the sunglasses, the pop of color, everything! I liked seeing the colors from the picture highlighted in the color palette because they seem like such a random assortment, but with just the right balance they look great together!

You guys!  I’m obsessed with this color palette!  I just can’t get over that black wall and white bedding!  What a perfect pair!  I think the trick with painting a wall black is using an extremely light color palette to contrast the black.  I like how even though the wall is dark, almost everything else in the room is white!  Beautiful!

The other day Jonathan and I were trying to decide what color to paint the bathroom and I suggested black.  Jonathan wasn’t too fond of the idea, and suggested I make a color palette to see what you all think of a black wall.  I’m curious, what are your thoughts on a black wall?  Would you do it?

As Jonathan and I prepare to move to our new city and into our new home, I can’t help but start to make plans for how I want to decorate our new space.  My mind is going crazy with ideas for new design projects and color combinations.  Just today I got a call from our new landlord letting us know they are going to be installing new granite counter tops in our kitchen!  I am SO excited!

So today I thought I would share a new color palette with you in honor of our new house.  I love this picture of blogger, Emily Henderson’s living room.  The brown leather chairs have the perfect combination of modern and cottage chic.  I also love how the room is mostly white with subtle pops of color like the beautiful pink flowers or the gold vases.  And, did you see that amazing blue color painted in the fireplace!  Stunning!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hello my lovely friends!  Today is kind of a crazy day because I start midterms!  But, it shouldn’t be too bad so I don’t mind.  Also, yesterday my drawing class took that field trip to Western Oregon University, and it was fabulous!  We went to a museum on campus that had an illustration exhibit.  The exhibit was really good, and it was fun to see illustration put into practice in so many different art forms.

I have another fun color palette for you today.  I picked this picture because I am totally obsessed with the chairs, and their great colors!  What do you think of them?

Good morning friends!  How is your week going!?  Mine is going pretty good.  I have been working hard on a drawing that I will be presenting in class today, so wish me luck!

I have had a few requests to bring my color palette column back so I have decided to do it!  I am actually pretty excited to bring this column back!  Today I have picked out a cute outfit from Madewell’s Looks We Love that I thought you might enjoy!  I just love that rolled, polk-a-dot button up shirt styled underneath a sweater.  You could also replace that shirt with a chambray shirt if you had that instead.  I am also in love with the different blue tones contrasted with cream and orange.

Happy Monday my dear friends!  How was your weekend?  Jonathan and I were in Washington this weekend for my cousin’s wedding.  It was really fun getting to spend some time with family.  And the wedding was fabulous!  Fall weddings are the way to go!  I will post pictures soon.

I have another color palette for you today.  So, the colors are not very “fallish” like I have been doing for my other posts but I thought I would throw you a curve ball and change it up a bit.  I really like all the soft colors in this photo and thought it would make a nice color palette.  I like the traditional light pink rose and isn’t that letter press type amazing?!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday dear friends!  How was your weekend?  Jonathan had the weekend off so we decided to celebrate fall in Corvallis.  It was fabulous!  Lots of pumpkin spice lattes and colorful leaves.

Today I decided to do another clothing color palette.  I am loving all the fall fashion in my favorite stores.  This outfit is from Anthropologie and I like the colors they put together.  And you gotta love the mixing of stripes and polka dots!  I also decided to do a little re-design for this column.  I hope you like it!
