Deep Blue + White Color Palette Inspiration

I came across the beautiful blue painting below and knew I had to build a color board around it. A rich, deep blue complements crisp white to create a bold, yet neutral scheme. I especially love the unique, architectural details in the wedding gown!

Color Palette Inspiration: Pantone Color of the Year 2013

Yesterday, Pantone announced their Color of the Year 2013, PANTONE 17-5641 | Emerald! Their description:

Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

What are your thoughts on this color? Personally, I love the jewel-tone quality and richness of the hue. It is a big change from last year’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango, but a welcomed one, I think. Here is a little inspiration board to get you thinking about Emerald for your upcoming wedding or event!

Flowers: By Fleurology Design
Dress: By Elie Saab Spring 2012 Ready to Wear via Style
Shoes: By Gucci via Bluefly
