This week I’m sharing a fun color palette in bright and dusty tones. This color palette isn’t too dark and moody, but it’s still filled with some dusty mauves, pinks, and blues, but the purples brighten it up! I loved this combination because it’s different. You don’t see this color combo very often, but it’s a gorgeous effect. Here’s the colors we used in this wedding inspiration!

We chose a range of colors for this centerpiece, tablescape, and bouquet that you don’t see together every day. We used a range of pink flowers in dusty tones; from the light blush Kiera Garden roses and the dusty blush quicksand roses to the medium dusty mauve Pieris Japonica buds and the brown mauve butterfly ranunculus. Then, we layered in blues to add a new tone to the color palette. We used delphiniums and blue muscari for the blues in these pieces. Then we added in the purples! We used bright lavender spray roses, lavender scabiosa, dark wine variegated carnations, and white and dark purple scabiosa. These arrangements are filled with some of my favorite flowers!
For the tablescape, we chose a neutral grey velvet linen. Then we layered in vintage styled details like the white charger plate, blue main plate, and the vintage silver flatware. We mixed in silver votives and and a silver compote. Then we finished the tablescape with linen lavender napkins tied with dusty blue velvet ribbons.
Here’a few tips if you’re loving this color palette!
One: Don’t overdo it with the color! I loved that we mixed the bright colors with more dusty tones. The dusty pinks, mauves, and blues toned down the bright lavender flowers. The grey linen was the perfect neutral to pair with this color palette. A bright white would be too high of a contrast and the flowers would pop too much. I personally think a colored linen would cause the table to look less elegant.
Two: Keep the designs airy. This color palette needs room to breathe between the colors. If it was all tightly compacted, it could look a little more elementary instead of elegant. I love adding in “flyers” or flowers the float over the top of others.
Three: Spring for the higher end blooms! The garden roses, blue muscari, scabiosa, and butterfly ranunculus really make this design come to life!
