designing with photography – jonquils

by Sarah January 07, 2013

As many of you know, I am a registered interior designer by trade. One of my favorite things about design is selecting a color palette and deciding how all the pieces of a project might fit together. Beginning today and the 2nd week of each month during 2013, Design with Photography will become a regular feature on the blog.

I will be providing a piece of my photography as a starting point for design, selecting a color palette and showing you how you might use the pieces in your own designs.

All the photography used for these posts is available for sale in my shop as art prints, framed prints, canvas prints and occasionally throw pillows. In addition, I will be selecting and sourcing accessories and paint colors to go along with the theme of the week.

This weeks theme is Jonquils and gives you a soft color palette to design around for the new year. I hope you enjoy this new feature and please don’t hesitate to ask any questions along the way.

The schedule for Designing with Photography will be as follows:

Monday: Photo of the week with color palette

Wednesday: Accessories and Fun Additions

Friday: Paint Colors and Final Palette

By the end of the year you will have 12 color palettes that you can use to jump start your creativity in your favorite space.

Have a great day.
