another edition of color combination inspiration

I am so excited at all of the great feedback that I've gotten from my color combination inspiration posts!  I got a lot of great, new color combination suggestions from my last post as well as some requests to revisit favorite combinations.

As always, I have done my best to include a wide range of subjects.  You can pull great color combos from virtually any medium for any kind of crafting.  Enjoy!

Green/Mauve revisit from Ann (thanks to Linda for this awesome suggestion last time!)

  1. Gorgeous! Lately I've working out different color arrangements with grey since we just painted most of our house grey! The kitchen will have pops of yellow; my studio has pops of turquoise, brown and lavender; and everywhere else has brown, green, & turquoise.

  2. Dear Rose, I love these pictures. They are all beautiful and transporting. Have a great day. Blessings, Catherine

  3. Lovely colours

  4. Love the green and mauve best!

  5. I thinkg the more unusal one was the red/applegreen/purple. Really different! I have used a combo lately that incldes a carrot/cinnamon color and black.

  6. Great color combos! I will be back to see more of your inspirations!

    My most recent color inspiration is an apple red/aqua/lime green combo.

  7. What fun inspiration! I haven't thought of some of those combos before but I liked them all. I've noticed purple and turquoise lately and I'm liking it!

  8. I really love that pink, yellow, and grey combo. I see grey paired with yellow a lot, but I love the spark that the bright pink adds. :)

  9. Love the lime, tangerine and pink :) And I'm sitting outside right the green and brown are looking pretty good too :)

  10. Love this series! I also love red/black/white (and decorated my bedroom with that scheme). :)

  11. What a lovely series of combos, Rose! Because we've been out of town, I missed what you are doing here. Inspirational!

  12. Nice color combos. I am really into black and white these days, with just a dash of some popping color :)

  13. This is so fun. I really like the red and turquoise. I added a couple of red beads to a turquoise necklace today and it totally changed the whole mood. It was awesome. :-)

    Next time I'd like to see something metallic!

  14. another great selection of color combos.

  15. Very fun color combinations! I like burgundy and just about any color. I used to frame black and white drawings and photos in burgundy mats and decorative black frames. Very lucious ;-)

  16. Fabulous colour combos! I love the yellow/pink - in fact, i wore an outfit in these colours recently ;-)
    Turquoise/red is also a favourite!

  17. Loving the colors in all of the photos!

  18. I love those combinations! The turquoise and red are awesome together.
    Everyday Inspired

  19. great post! I love looking at color combos. One of my favorites is (light) blue/brown. And burgundy is a great color, but I must say I always feel like I'm celebrating Christmas when I pair it with any color green. Guess I've been brain-washed... {:-D
