Mood: Don't Call it Blurple

Color Palette Mood Board Don't Call it Blurple by Erika Firm featuring Indigo Laptop Bag by Alesya Bags

 

I love how edgy indigo looks when paired with peony pink, caviar black, crisp white, and delphinium blue. This is a powerful color palette for sure — even with pink and light blue hues in the mix.

When my friend Alesya was designing her latest collection of leather laptop bags that don't look like laptop bags, the stand out color was a purplish-blue hue that we temporarily dubbed "don't call it blurple." She settled on "Indigo" as the final color name for two reasons. Number one: technically, indigo is the color between blue and violet on the visible spectrum — which the bag most certainly is. Number two: indigo is the name of a dye of the same color extracted from the Indigofera plant, a crop important to early South Carolina history

I always love the colors Alesya brings to the table. Fingers crossed for a green in the next collection. Just sayin'.

MOOD: Prickly Pear

MOOD: Prickly Pear
Prickly Pear Mood Board by Erika Firm

Hot pink is a magical color. In my opinion it, like green and animal print, is a neutral. Really! It pretty much goes with anything and everything. This Prickly Pear mood board's vibe is vibrant, bold, fun ... and summery! Key colors are prickly pear pink, azure blue, spearmint green, rose pink, tangerine orange, kiwi green, and citron yellow. All these fun, bright colors remind me of Farmer's Markets in SoCal. I could go for one of those agua frescas now!

Ahhh, orange. I'm in purple detox this week, thankfully. Orange isn't a favorite color of mine, but I'm for sure warming up to it. I especially like it paired with green (go figure).

Key colors are Sumatra Orange, Celiosa Orange, Keffir Lime, Creamsicle, Melon, Parakeet, and Lagoon. For more Celiosa Orange fun hop over to my Instagram. Continue reading

Purple. You must be thinking I've lost my mind. But a few weeks ago, the magical wisteria vines were blooming all over Charleston and I was in awe. I particularly like wisteria purple paired with navy blue and chartreuse (you know I've gotta get a teensy bit of green in there). This Wisteria Hysteria mood board's vibe is bold, powerful, lush, and feminine. Key colors are Violet, Wisteria, White Lilac, Navy, Chartreuse, Orchid, and Olive.
