Inspiration: Succulents and Steely Blue

12 Apr

When I saw the spring thistle arrangement in this board on Etsy I fell in love with the mix of the steely grayish blue and the subdued artichoke green. I immediately thought of succulents as the perfect complementing floral element since they have that unique grayish green color to them. Since the color theme was pulled from something organic I wanted to keep that organic feel with touches like the gray-blue river rock escort cards. Definitely not a color combo I would have thought of until I saw it, but I love the peacefulness of it!
