Colorboard #11 – a little twist on aqua and orange

Categories   Colorboards

Which is one of the bestest color combos out there, as many people know. Remember Viola’s amazing wedding from a few years ago? (see details here, here, here). Still love it.

And you could take this palette somewhere a teeny bit more sophisticated pretty easily:

Wonderful! I really love your combination and settings of these colours together. I always find it interesting to mix and match new colours!

I am always surprised by the fact that I see colors like this work together in pictures but that I can never picture them as "wedding colors" until I see a colorboard here. I should try shifting my perspective a little. Lovely.

That is beautiful. Almost Parisian inspired as well.

Your image choice is always so perfectly selective and original. It's the triad of color--coral, turquoise and the punch in your backgrounds--your "accessory" vision that makes them so unique. The warm grey in the backgrounds that are subliminal really does it for me. You create mood and inspire vision beyond the ordinary and expected. thank you!!

This is such a gorgeous color palette! I can visualize the most amazing invitation package using these colors.

OOhh! lovely! I wish you would have posted this sooner; I would have chosen these for my wedding colors!

Very well put together! The combination looks wonderful. Its surprising how the accent colors make the aqua really pop! Great suggestion for the bride not looking for the typical run of the mill look.

I'm L O V I N G the color combo!!!! So retro and very inspirational!!

ohh i love this! I was originally thinking about orange, marigold, creams and a slate grey (bridesmaids dresses) for my colors - do you think adding some pops of turquoise is too much? or will it work since slate is such a neutral? We're having a fall farm wedding and i was picturing mums, dahlias, queen ann's lace and babys breath...would working some blue be too much? I'd love any thoughts!

Great color palette!

amanda on May 22, 2009

Kristy, We think turquoise would be the perfect addition to the other colors...but maybe you use it as an accent? We love little (but impactful) hits of color! Best of luck in your planning! Amanda
