Color Inspiration

Coral, Green and Blue

April 28, 2010

Hello Friends! It is Leslie with this month’s Color Me Pretty. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting a Ranunculus farm just south of where I live and I got really inspired with all the gorgeous colors.

Coral, Green and Blue

Coral, Green and Blue

I was really impressed with the coral toned variety and decided to use some of the photographs I took there as my inspiration for this column. I think the spring greens, light melons, darker corals and the light blue sky are so fresh and beautiful. I wanted to use this combination to provide you with some little ways to incorporate different palettes into your home life.

Over my desk I have two medium sized cork boards that I got from the Container Store and I love changing what is on them all the time. Sometimes I have a color idea on them and other times it is more about an idea -like desserts! I like to use my eyelet puncher to hang envelopes on my board to hold little scraps or as a holder of visual ideas that I may want to work on later. I also like to use larger clips to hang art work so that I am not putting holes in some of my favorite cards, like the bird and bloom one by Hadley Hutton.

I keep some of my paper collection in inexpensive cylinder trash cans. It is nice to be able to see what you have in order to use and be inspired by your supplies. Of course some of my papers are kept laying flat in a proper box but I must say I end up using what is out and visible first! I also have a hard time parting with some of my scraps as I like to make cards for my family and friends. A simple way to organize your scraps is by cleaning up the shape of the piece (with a pair of small, sharp scissors like this) and then popping it into a glassine envelope. I taped the envelopes into a new journal so that I can reference the colorful bits for future paper craft projects.

Sometimes it is fun to experiment with a different color scheme by incorporating some new colors into a little entertaining idea. A couple fun colored bowls for dips or how about straws and goody bags? Yes, even adults love goody bags after a nice lunch or dinner!

I wanted to take a friend some flowers recently and decided to use an old mason jar.  To dress it up I tied some paper ribbon around the jar and fastened a clothes peg to it to hold the card. This could look good on a table as well and is a fun way to add a table number or even some fancy scrap papers!

I hope you found some ideas to incorporate more colors into you day and I look forward to seeing you here next month.

Take good care,
Leslie

    Welcome back dear Leslie, I hope you and your family are holding up. This is such a beautiful, inspiring post (as usual), and I especially love seeing the behind-the-scenes bits about your creative process – from the inspiration at the flower farm to your inspiration boards back home and finally into a finished arrangement. Just lovely.

    I’ve been feeling very emotional lately (8 months pregnant will do that, I guess!) and visiting you & Holly here this morning was just the thing I needed to brighten my day :)

    Leslie,

    Your journal with the glassine envelops is a wonderful idea for corralling paper scraps. Love it!

    And I love the color scheme. I have an office with those gorgeous shades of coral and blue with walls of yellow. They are my inspiration. Inviting and warm, isn’t it?

    Thanks,

    Les I absolutely love how you share the “how to”. You illustrate it so well and your ideas are fresh and unique. Those Japanese tapes make everything better don’t they? I am yearning for summer and it seems to be taking it’s sweet old time with erratic spring weather here so your fields of ranunculus in the sunshine with that gorgeous blue sky took me away- thanx for sharing your creative eye so beautifully. And Yeh, it’s sunny outside here today:)

    What an inspiring place! If I wasn’t an Art Director, I would be a professional flower sniffer. Thanks for sharing, Holly!
    Some great tips for keeping your flower pickings longs this spring:

    Buy Flowers In-Season
    Flowers grown in the right season tend to last twice as long as those grown out-of-season and under unfavorable conditions. Ask your florist about his/her seasonal varieties.

    Buy Locally Grown Flowers
    Just like food, flowers begin to lose their potency, fragrance and beauty after traveling long distances. Find out what flowers are grown locally or in your region. These are the flowers that will seem like they were just picked straight from your garden, without the hassle of actually gardening.

    Buy Natural Flowers
    Natural flowers are beautiful and fragrant just the way nature intended. Hybrids and genetically altered flowers are often less vibrant, less fragrant and have a significantly shorter lifespan.

    Buy Flowers Built To Last
    There are flowers and arrangements specifically designed by nature and/or your florist that allows them to last a long time for your enjoyment.

    Dried flowers, also known as “everlastings” preserve the beauty of the flower, often for as long as a year. Some of the best flowers for everlasting arrangements are:
    Roses
    Hydrangea
    Safari Sunset
    Protea
    Sunflowers

    Happy picking!

    Hi Leslie. What beautiful colours, coral is one of my all time favourite colours – but surprising hard to find in homewares so I’m always creating my own. I’ve been experimenting with spring colours too, blue and yellow, to brighten up the chilly autumn days here in New Zealand.
    I love the mason jars idea as well, so understated and pretty.

    Ranunculus were the predominant flowers in my wedding floral arrangements so I have a definite soft spot for them. Also, I have a jumbo cork board in my home office and always regret putting little holes in some of the papers/artwork I hung up. Now, I never have to do that again.

    Hey, I love your post!

    I’m looking into these colours for a wedding and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind telling me the name of the pink and peach ruffled flowers in the blue jug (5th picture down).
    I did a google image search for Ranunculus but those colours and shape don’t come up, so I’m wondering if they’re a special type or a different kind altogether? I’m in NZ so the chance of finding them here are remote, but I’d like to at least try :)
