so when we last left off, our color combo was sand + black…some neutral goodness. now we’re taking black and adding a splash of red to it for some classic style. my mom always loved this combo – and it must have rubbed off on me because when i really started getting into design as a kid , guess what color i painted my bedroom then? yeppers…red! (this was right after my lavendar phase…shudder!)
do you think this combo is a classic or too played out?
see all past color combo posts here!
last week we took a trip to the beach with the color palette of turquoise + sand. this week’s color combo is a bit subdued but that doesn’t mean it lacks in cool. it’s like a crisp, white button down shirt – always in style and effortlessly cool!
i’m back with a color combo (cue round of applause)! let’s see…when we last left off, it was mustard yellow paired with turquoise. so this week, let’s take it to the beach for color inspiration! actually, screw the color combo, can we just go to the beach??

hi all! can you believe it’s almost july?! where did june go? the summer needs to slow down!
today’s another color palette for some inspiration and you know i’m loving it already…it’s got yellow in it!! last week we left off with navy blue + mustard yellow…this week it’s all about yellow + turquoise. such a great color combination for summer – bright, colorful - just makes me feel lighter! could you see using these colors as accents or full on room colors?
last week we left off with navy blue in these color palettes…this week is an oldie but goodie…navy blue + mustard yellow! one of my favorites – it’s such a bright, colorful and totally cool color pairing. feels perfect for summer!…blue walls anyone?!
so last week i did a color combo post (grey + chartreuse) based on paper-source’s colorology. it got me thinking that it would be fun every week to take one of the colors from the last post, add a new color and voila, new color combo! that way, we get to see lots of different colors together AND i get to put my internet wandering to good use!!
love how bright, kinda preppy + modern this color combo is! next week…navy blue + ??
as i was working this weekend (and wandering), i came across this fun color chart over at paper source. please tell me that i’m not the only one who gets a kick out of these kinds of things! try to not look at the wording and just choose what color you’re drawn to most – then read what it says.
my immediate pick was “chartreuse” followed by “gravel” (you know i loves me some grey!) – interesting, kinda describes me!! what’s your color & does it describe you?
