Color Play Friday - Downtown Savannah

Hello all and welcome to Color Play Friday!

Things have been a bit quiet around here lately but I'm happy I managed to post for Color Play Friday this week! For those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a weekly challenge hosted by Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week she provides a photo as inspiration and then the CPF participants create a color palette and a fabric bundle based on the photo. It's a lot of fun and everyone is welcome to join. For more info on how to play along, click the CPF button on my sidebar.

The photo for this week is actually one of mine. I love traveling and exploring and I took this one on a quick stopover in Savannah. The city was absolutely charming and I would love to go back and spend more time discovering the place.


Here is what I came up with for the week.


Ooh! I just love it! The palette is on the muted side and in a time when bright, saturated fabrics are all the rage that generally makes it harder to find fabrics in this range but I'm really happy with my choices this week.

Until next time!

Color Play Friday - Hydrangea Skeletons

Hey Everyone! I took a break from Color Play Friday last week but I'm back at it this week.

For those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a weekly challenge hosted by Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week she provides a photograph as inspiration and then the participants create a color palette and a fabric bundle based on the photo. It's a lot of fun and everyone is welcome to play along. You can click the button on my sidebar for more info on how to join in!

This week's photo is called "Hydrangea Skeletons" and it's absolutely gorgeous!


Seriously, this is my favorite CPF photo so far and there have been a lot of great photos in that pool!

Here is what I came up with.


There are a few metallics in the bundle; that was a happy accident that ended up enhancing the bundle as a whole and creating a wonderful cohesiveness. I think my palette this week has such a modern femininity to it. Overall, I'm incredibly happy with how it all came together.
