A Mood Board for a Monday | The Freaky, The Scary and The Hairy

October 26th, 2009

Is everybody ready for Halloween? I am!

To celebrate Halloween this week, here is a scary, hairy, frightful and delightful inspiration board for you.

Even though these images are an unusual departure from my otherwise pretty and girlicious boards, I wanted to demonstrate that you can find beauty, gorgeous color combinations, and inspiration anywhere. In the freakish, in the frightening, and in the unusual.

Miuccia Prada made a name for herself with high fashion label Prada in part due to her offbeat mixing of colors and textures. She combined colors such as mustard yellows, grey browns and navy blues in ways that were eye catching and ultimately ground breaking. She gave new definition to what people could look for in color palettes and opened up a whole range of colors that would otherwise be ignored.

Beautiful images are always easy to look at because they’re appealing to the eyes. But take some time to look at things that you may otherwise not find initially appealing. You never know what may inspire you when you take the time to look.

Mood board based on unusual colors and images for Halloween.
