Daffodil & Pewter

Anne and I recently received this email from a reader:

Hello, my name is Anna. I just stumbled onto your blog, and I absolutely love it! I am an artist (painter) so I’m obsessed with color and combinations thereof. I also just got engaged, and we have only settled on one thing- the colors :) I have been searching desperately for some inspiration with this combo: daffodil and pewter. I obviously love your current ‘color’ week being combinations of colors with gray, and was hoping you could feature my idea? Martha Stewart recently featured a marigold/pewter combo, but I need more! Please help!

I adore shades of yellow and gray together but there are several ways to go with this palette.  After finding some pictures in our archive, I decided to build two boards for Anna, so that she could choose which she prefers based on her personal style.  First up, a very vintage chic board that blends the pewter and daffodil with shades of cream and brown.

Next, completely in the other direction, a modern board with geometric lines, some bling, and loads of silver, gold, and white blended with the main colors.

Anna, I hope that this helps you choose the direction of your event!  Let us know what you decide.  :)

    OMG!!! Wow, I don’t deserve TWO boards! These are just beautiful. I love love love the vintage gown from Impressionen. Again, thank you so much for both of these! I’ll send you pictures/updates when the ball gets rolling. Yay!

  2. I LOVE this color combo… this site is so refreshing, inspiring… I just love it! I found it through Rachel Trigueiro event design, and am so impressed with all of it! I’ve already been checking in from time to time… and I’m definitely visiting more often! :)
