Board No. 72: Pomegranate + Plum

7 June 2010


{Click to enlarge!}

This isn’t the most summery of boards, I’ll give you that, but isn’t it beautiful? I’ve been wanting to base a palette around Todd Pellowe’s lovely photo (top left) for a while, but it just didn’t come together until this week. I love the casualness of the variety of dresses paired with the over-the-top opulence of that fantastic pomegranate cake. The range of hues in the gowns really provides the perfect start for a color scheme, doesn’t it?

    I love this board! I'm currently planning my own wedding and these colors are gorgeous. I've been using the SW site for inspiration and just read about the road you took to work there. I also graduated from Wheaton (2003) and loved your story! Congrats to you, love your blog. Love hearing great stories about fellow Wheaties :)

    Hi Emily! Thank you SO much for your comment! I, too, love coming across Wheaties in unexpected places! Best of luck with your wedding planning — if you'd like me to put together a board for you, I'd be more than happy to do so!
