Color Inspiration…

You know, it hasn’t been a cold winter (knock on wood), but it certainly feels like its been a long time since the last sundress season (my favorite season).  In NC, it’s normally from April – October.

I’ve been craving those dresses alot lately, so I’m definitely going to get a bunch in stock for when the website launches.  Color is also BIG to me, if you haven’t had a chance to weigh in on my website colors, click here.

According to Pantone, the color of 2013 is Emerald.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m really glad, because I LOVE this deep green.  It’s gorgeous.

To find color inspiration for other colors, I like to go to Pinterest, (you can follow me by clicking here) and search “Color Inspiration” and I am always surprised by the gorgeous combinations that come up that I would never in a million years have thought of by myself, but they just work.

Some of the other gorgeous combinations I love:

Coral and turquoise – this is actually my inspiration for my master bathroom.

Love the contrast here.

Love.  So feminine, but structured.  You can buy the pillows here.

This inspiration is from nature itself.  Wow.  How bright and fun.

What are your favorite colors?  What colors would you like to see on the Yellow Dress Boutique website?

Playing the Waiting game…

I’m anxious to get the website up and show you all what I’ve been working on (and the cute stuff I have for Spring) but right now I’m playing the waiting game.  Waiting on the state, waiting on approval, waiting on loans, just waiting and waiting.  I know in the end it will be worth it, and there’s no sense in rushing it now as this has been a 3+ year journey to get Yellow Dress Boutique to this point.

At this point, I’m looking at an April 1st launch.  Any sooner would be AMAZING but I’m trying to be realistic.  Everyday (well, night since I end up doing all my work at night), I get to cross another thing off my to-do list, and I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with it.  I’ve even been adding things to my list that I’ve already done, just to cross them off (hello OCD)!

Everyday I get more and more excited to show you what I’ve been working on and I promise it will be worth the wait.

For now, I’ll give you a teaser with some pictures of my color scheme (I think I’ve settled on this one, at least)… I love the contrast of yellow and navy mixed with the in-between gray.  Yes, I think this is the one for the website.

What do you think about these colors for the website? I’d love to hear everyones opinions!
