Color Palette No. 14

6 Feb

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!

Color Palette No. 10: Back to School Edition

24 Sep

Hi friends!  Today is my first day of school!  Crazy!   I decided to do a back-to-school color palette for you today in honor of my first day.  I just love this outfit and I think it is perfect for school.  And fall!  I like the contrast between the deep red and muted yellow/cream colors.  I also think the light pink lipstick is a perfect touch!

Hi friends!  I am getting a late start today.  I have been out of town for a week and then Jonathan and I drove back into town late last night.  But the good news is Jonathan is back from Portland!  I am so happy to go back to a semi-normal life.  Anyways, here is the color palette for today.  It feels like fall out so I choose this color palette in celebration of fall.  Fall makes me want to curl up in a cozy place and drink a cup of hot chocolate.  Happy Monday everyone!

I have another fun color palette for you today!  I came across this picture the other day and just loved it!  There is something about this whimsical/colorful/
vintage/minimal look that I just can’t get enough of.  It has also given me an idea for my office.  I am thinking about painting my desk like this – maybe paint all the drawers teal or something.  What are your thoughts.  I would love feedback for this project because I just can’t decide.  If I do it, I will be sure to post the process for you to read.

Hi friends! How was your weekend? I have been basking in the Texas sun over here in Austin. And it has been wonderful! Today I have a fun color palette for you. I decided to choose a color palette that is a little different from my usual style. I liked that there is a major color definition in the green wall but that they used a lot of white accents in the table decor. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Well, hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  My weekend was bitter sweet since Jonathan left for Portland yesterday afternoon…sigh.  But we had a great time in Corvallis before he left and I know the rotation will be over before we know it.

Today I have another color palette for you and what a shocker, there is more bright pink.  I don’t know what it is with me and pink lately but I love it.  This color palette is a little different because I decided to highlight an outfit instead of a cool space.  I picked this outfit because I love the red cropped pants and a bright colored shirt to go with it.  And don’t you just love her red lipstick and nails! Doesn’t it seem like in fashion lately, anything goes?!  It is so fun to see what people are coming up with.  I hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend!?  Jonathan and I have been traveling a ton lately so we decided to stay in Corvallis this weekend and I think it was a good decision.  We were able to relax and get caught up on stuff around the house.  We also took a quick day trip out to the Oregon Coast on Saturday.  It was a beautiful day for the beach and we even got a little sunburn!

Today I have a fun color palette to share with you.  This color palette is full of fun pinks and I think you will enjoy it!
