Tipsy Tuesday - What Color Is Your Palette?

What color is your palette?

When working tonight on an upcoming event design I always start with color and texture to set the tone.  Finding just the right hue for your celebration is key.  While Hawaii lends itself to the lovely tropical vibe which incorporates citrus colors and grounding earth colors, it also reflects the hues of the sparkling blue pacific against a breathtaking sunset.  Take these elements into account but let your mind be open to the use of mixing both texture and fabrics when it comes to your linen selections and decor.  

First of all, always use a grounding neutral earth color such as cream, sand, mocha, green or water.  Then compliment these colors with fun touches of patterns and prints as well as movement of texture.  Monochromatic use of color is wonderful and especially when paired with a fun pattern or print.  Explore lighting techniques to further enhance the ambiance reflecting the tone you most desire.  

It is your day and if you love to ‘paint’ your event like I do…start with your palette and it will all unfold from there.
