Here's a brand new dose of color inspiration in shades of soothing blues. This box is number 8 in my Inspiration Box series. I haven't done one in over 2 years, but hopefully will work on them more frequently again. Life and work always seem to get in the way. Now there's a category on the right column so you can click to see them all. They are all based on monochromatic palettes. This one features soft, gray blues (fluffy vintage flowers) to darker blues (velvet flowers). I see it as a study in texture and hue. That's the name of the game for me and why I do them. It's a sophisticated approach to wedding reception or bridal party color. Nail polish is Oscar de la Renta's signature bridal blue. Vintage silk flowers were found at Elephant Props and wide ribbon is from Hyman Hendler. Cotton print fabric is from Hen House Linens. Silk fabric swatch is from Mood. Favor bag of tree branch buttons was purchased on Etsy years ago. That polka dot feather—like most of my things—has been hanging around a while waiting for the right moment to be included.
