Chalky Purple

Smokey gray-blue and lilac don't often meet, but when they do, it's color magic! This pairing has a whimsical feel, especially with shine from silver trim, but high-style fabric choices keep it just serious enough.

Designer: Sabrina Soto

Getting Started:

Use a ratio formal to help you put together a color scheme. Choose one primary color to serve as 40-60 percent of your color, then one to two secondary colors to comprise 30-40 percent of your color and fill the remainder with one to two accents. Thinking of color this way can help you determine how much of each color to use. Go to the next slide to see how this scheme breaks out.
