Color Palette Blog Walk: Round 2



My awesome friend, Brandi, is hosting her second installment of the Color Palette Blog Walk and today is my day, along with Paige, Katrina, and Jenni.  We are sharing are favorite pictures and the colors, within them, that inspire us.  Fortunately, and sometimes unfortunately, everything inspires me!!  I'm a little like a puppy, distracted by the shiny object I noticed out of the corner of my eye.  My color palettes reflect this "Everything is wonderful" notion, and the different facets of my personality.

Peachy

Ahhh, the PeachHoneyLove logo painting.  My brand colors have a little pink for my girlie side, and the creams and browns for my vintage side.  Vintage girlie... sounds about right.  The subtle tones of the pinks and yellows are reminiscent of a baby's room... soft and delicate.  It reminds me to be quiet, and whisper, when my mind is screaming.  We all have those days, don't we?


Breakfast

A picture of a bowl of berries... simple, yet powerful.  It represents my sassy side, and if you ask my husband, it's the only side I have.  The colors are so rich and sexy.  It's amazing how a color can radiate confidence and power.  It makes me want to put on that sexy dress, I've been afraid to wear, and go dancing.  Do you have a color that makes you feel this way?


Kauai

Mother Earth.  This picture represents the side of me that gets down and dirty in the backyard, pulling weeds and diggin' ditches.  The terra cotta color is splattered throughout my living room, the olive green draped over my bed and windows, and the taupe hung over the shower door in the form of a bath towel. I surround myself with these earthy colors because the keep me grounded, and make me feel at home. 

If you want to check up on the past color walk bloggers, and follow the rest of us, here's the complete schedule... Enjoy!!

I love the way you relate color to part of your personality and how it makes you feel. So true, I could never be one of those people who choose to wear black ALL the time, I would feel deprived!

Love that sassy bowl of cherries!! I agree with Jenni that it's very cool how you relate color to emotions.... I think I do it on some level, but not as personally as you do.

However.... the color that makes me feel confident and sexy? That would be pink! I love being a girl and pink is most definitely a color that we can claim as our own... and I love how it makes my skin look! :-)

Great photos and palettes!! I'm glad you played on Brandi's fun blog walk!!

Love those peachy hues - all of your palettes however, are yummy. Who would have noticed all the subtle hues in the bowl of berries. A good eye you have.

Brandi said...

These are so fantastic! I love all of them, but I have to echo everyone else - loving how you relate the colors to emotions here.

And I love the sassy cherries. LOVE them.

Thanks for playing along, my friend!!

Such a wonderful array. Those berries are quite sexy and sassy! Red is a power color for me! And black. I feel very powerful and sexy in black. I love the soft pink and peach colors. Such a soothing palette to live with!
Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the day.

Hi Jess...I sure enjoyed the stop at your blog to see your Color Palettes! You sure took a unique approach, certainly one I would have never thought of - relating your pictures to your personality. Not only did I get to visit your blog and see your pictures, but I felt like I got to know you a bit too! I relate most to the colors in your peach logo image...just love those! Thanks for sharing today!

I completely understand your comment about everything inspiring you, whether that might be a good or bad thing. I think it's a good thing! To be able to take inspiration from anything, anywhere is awesome. And we really are surrounded by so many sources. I love how this blog walk shows us that. Beautiful images and palettes, too!

Jess said...

A big huge THANKS A MILLION to all you lovely sassy ladies that walked by my blog this week. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
