Blueberry Palette

I know that fall is approaching because this is the first week we haven’t been in the 90’s all week, but I’m still clinging to summer in my mind. While most folks are putting up their fall decor, I’m still trying to coax the last bit of life out of my spring colors. That’s why, when I saw this blueberry picture, I just had to use it for something. Blueberry palette with blues and tanWhen you’re building a color palette to use in your home, it’s usually a good idea to include a version of a contrasting color to offset your dominant colors. Here, the blues are obviously the dominant color, and that soft straw or camel color provides a nice backdrop.

Here’s to the last remaining days of summer (if you have any in your area) and to the last of the fresh blueberries!

Never thought to look at fruit for color inspiration in the home. It's a nice color palette that you've put together.

Oh wow! I love this palette. It gives a warm welcome feel to a room. I love fresh blueberries, never have thought to use the colour. It is beautiful!

I never would have thought of this contrasting color with the blues, but you're right, they work beautifully.

Thanks Suzanne! Without a contrasting color, the blues could be a little overwhelming.

I LOVE this palette! And blue isn't one of my favorite colors. But this blend would give such a rich welcoming feel to a room. I've already, "grab" the palette and tucked it away for inspiration.
