Rainbow Connection: Blackberries and Lemons

October 24, 2012

Fall is upon us. Are the leaves turning colors in your part of the world?

At this time of the year, we think about russets and browns, golds and olive greens. Well, today I’m giving you a new palette in the shades of blackberry and lemon – a delicious combination for weddings (a  trendy palette in Martha Stewart Weddings, in fact) but I can also see the palette used for feminine designs – birthdays, anniversaries, thank you notes, congratulations, all for her. Deepen the hues a touch and include the gentlemen, too.

Have fun!

As always, these are RGB colors. I’ve given you the hex numbers to make it easy to use these colors in your favorite graphics editing program, or you can simply save the palettes to your own hard drive.

    when designing with color trends (and any time really) it’s important to include the color terms in your keywords and if room in your card title. Brides are very particular with their color schemes and will search by color. Search “yellow purple wedding” on pinterest and you’ll get an eyefull!
