Palettes from abstracts
Something I love to do from our work is create color palettes. (Clients appreciate it too!) Palettes can make your decorating so easy and yet exciting at the same time. If you need Pantone or Benjamin Moore colors, we are happy to supply those too.
Here are a couple I have just created. I haven’t selected a ‘pop’ color on either as yet because these have been done for fun, rather than for a client.
When palettes are created for clients, their own preferences are taken largely into consideration, of course.
This is a favorite because it brings out some of my own person color preferences.
The deep purple and the almost-blue mauve color blend so well with the earth tones of the other three colors.
The bright pink, almost in the center of the image would make a great ‘pop’ color, too. I can imagine this print on a white wall with the five accent colors brought out in cushions or soft furnishings. The bright pink would be great as a color for candles or a small ceramic – fresh flowers too.
I’ve never much liked blue which is why I like to create palettes using it – to make myself like it more
I love this palette though. Although I originally saw this print as being perfect for a beach home (or somewhere in the sun) it soon became obvious that this print, and these colors would be a way to brighten up a room in more gloomy parts of the world. I would use the darker blue with caution – just as an accent color.
The earth tones balance the blues well and perfect ‘pops’ would be the lavender color or the orange that you can faintly see on the left. Note that the print has two almost-circles - the orange one and the blue on below and I would echo the circular theme in the decor.
