Truth :: these color palettes can take a long time to make...even when I'm working from the photo of someone else. Sometimes they feel like more of a chore than a fun, end-of-the-week ritual. Why? Believe it or not, I try really hard to come up with clever titles, even though I'm pretty sure no one reads them or even cares. (This excludes the recipes from Jamie - those titles were obvious.) Last night, the dog was at my side whining and carrying on because I hadn't fed her yet...and here I was, staring at the computer, tired, brain-dead, and trying to conjure up a peony pun. I peo-NEED this to work out? Nope, that's a stretch. A Peony for Your Thoughts? Been there, done that. Uggghhhh. Finally, I gave up, typed this in, and put my computer to sleep. Peonies Shmeonies, it is!
On another note, isn't this photo by Ananda Escudero Gomes perfection? The lightest of pinks against a matte, slate gray with deep greens and highlights of chartreuse and magenta...wowza.

WHAT ARE THESE COLOR CODES? The “hex codes” above are provided as a courtesy for those customizing website colors or looking for general color inspiration. They are not based on paint or Pantone chips. Remember that ink on paper will never look the same as light on a screen. If you like a combination you see, we recommend saving the image and heading to your local hardware store to find paint chips that match. Digital colors will change depending on your phone/tablet/computer screen, so be sure to color match with real swatches. Also, I make up all the color names.
YAY, Friday!! Have a great weekend!
