COLOR LOVE: Blush, Charcoal & Silver

Mood Boards are the starting point (or should be) for any visual project you are planning.  A mood board is a visual representation of a personality of an attitude that will help you decipher key elements for recreating that personality in your project or brand.  Maybe you want to slim down your wardrobe to essential pieces or you are redecorating your office, either way you want to start with a well-curated inspiration board.  (learn to make your own here)

In my Mood Board Monday posts I hope to inspire you with mood boards & how they can come to life in art prints, decor, photography, fonts, patterns & personal style.  


adjectives: modern, metallic, feminine, geometric, tactile

When using a mood board for print design, look for fonts, colors & textures that match the overall personality of the inspiration board. Geometric, metallic lettering is perfect against a clean, feminine script. The watercolor detail adds a textural element when seen beside the sleek, silver lettering.  Use the personality of your mood board & the adjectives to guide your choices in color & typography.  

color love: blush & silver


try a metallic lip stain-  Apply a light, blushy gloss. Use a light, fluffy makeup brush to apply silver shadow just on the innermost area of you pout.  

Not feeling quite so bold?  Why not try a swipe or silver shadow along the upper lash line. Keeping the metallic close in one dense shape will keep the look modern & not reminiscent of when you were singing "Genie in a bottle' in your mirror.

Finding inspiration in your mood board doesn't need to be complicated.  For example, a silver pleated skirt is the perfect translation for this boards.  Pair it with charcoal, suede boots for a bit of geometric edge & texture.
