Board#74: Apricot & Beet

Phew, we've made it to Friday!! We're bracing ourselves here for 'the world's biggest storm' to hit in the next 24 hours. Yes that's what they're saying, a storm the size of Australia (gulp!) is heading our way. Awesome, another weekend of rain... because we REALLY need some more moisture on the ground (insert strong sarcasm here!!)
Once upon a time if someone mentioned they were having purple and orange as their wedding colours you'd quite likely shrink back in horror and imagine some garish nightmare of colour explosion about to happen. Thankfully though there are far more tasteful ways around it when you pull back on the primary colour overload and mix in muted smokey lavender tones with a pretty barely there apricot. I am loving this unexpected colour combination right now and it's a nice alternative for a fall wedding, but equally doable for a lighter spring wedding. What do you think... like, or not really your cuppa tea?
