Color Series | 52 | Aqua + Burnt Sienna

August 31st, 2011

This is such a great way to showcase a print against a bold color background! The aqua is a nod to 50’s retro, while the burnt sienna is totally mid century modern. The juxtaposition of both colors with the model right in the middle highlights every detail of her dress, clutch, shoes and accessories. I’m loving the genius of how simple and clean the styling is in this photo.

Color Series | 50 | Modern + Retro

August 29th, 2011

Love the 20’s styling of this photo with the cloche hat in the form of natural fibers. The fresh David Austin roses are a perfect contrast to it, and the bright colors of the pattern on the dress are all on trend.

Color Series | 49 | Midnight Blue + Blush

August 26th, 2011

Every once in a while, I see a color combination that I find very striking. This is one of those: midnight blue and blush offset with red and hot pink. Such a great combination. This look is well styled and the colors will transition well going from summer into early fall.
