If you are looking for gorgeous inspiring photographs, than this shop is the place to find them. Canadian photographer and fellow Etsy shop owner, Bomobob has an incredible collection of art to choose from. Perfect for whatever space or project you are working on, his work is nostalgic, peaceful and beautifully captured.
Although it is hard to pick just one (you will see more of his work in future palettes), for now I chose Pastel Summer. Since spring is finally here I thought this piece was perfect. I love its color scheme with lavender, pinks and creams. The image is so lush and whimsy – I imagine myself laying in the grass among the fields of wild flowers, inhaling the sweet scents of nature. Seems like a perfect moment you wish could last forever.
There is tons of inspiration one can get from these photos. Weddings, parties, showers as well as interior spaces. This one in particular would be a sensational palette for a garden wedding with rustic accents or any event in the spring or summer. Make sure you check out more of Bomobob’s work and also his other shop, Aunt Aggie’s Attic.
Here is another great piece from Arcane Arts designer, Adrienne Vita. I love this color scheme because it is dark but not gloomy. There is a fun sensibility to it that I am attracted to. Somewhat childlike and definitely fantasy inspired. I think we all wondered at one time, what lies beneath, right? This is a little look into the world that lives underneath us, shown from Adrienne’s perspective.
Organically drawn and brilliantly brought to life, What Lies Beneath draws you in to a space that is quiet, misunderstood and deep. Mirroring that feel are pastel hues that add a touch of whimsy. Together the darker colors help weigh down a space while the lighter peach and blue are soothing enough to bring it all together. This palette would be perfect for a living room or office space as well as a romantic wedding or event.
Theater Clouds is Canadian artist, Elly Mackay. The minute I saw her work I was in love. Her pieces are delicate, mesmerizing and beautiful. The process in which she works is sort of like creating a play or film but in stills. She uses ink for the drawings on yupo paper, cuts them out and layers them in an assemblage of wonderful little scenes. With the addition of lighting, these dreamy images are born.
Mackay studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where she received her BFA. She is married with two children and spends most of her time creating these amazing pieces for us all to see. Thanks Elly!
The palette’s from which her work are created are mostly muted tones that have a romantic feel to them. They are great inspiration for weddings and baby showers, not to mention a calm and meditative interior space.
