inspired palette {violet + khaki}

I am not a purple person. As much as I love color it has always been one of those that I have a hard time loving. It always seem to sacchrine. However, I do love it when paired with the weight of colors like khaki and olive...

cozying up

inspired palettes {sophie theallet + chris barrett}

I am actually not quite sure I will ever find (but oh I will try) two talents where their creations work as harmoniously together as those of Chris Barrett and Sophie Theallet. These two bold palettes are full of lovely and contagious energy...

So it isn't the 4th of July but patriotism will never go out of style and neither will the colors inspired by the sentiment....
