Mocha Moodboard

September 13, 2017

This pretty pale color palette is everything.

I’ve never liked neutrals or fall colors, but this nude palette somehow combines both and takes them up a notch into something more sophisticated. A better version of both, if you ask me. I’m so in love with these colors that I created a little workbook with color swatches and web numbers (I even made up names and pulled colors from the images, because that’s my idea of fun). You  can either save for future reference, or pin to go along with the mood board. I designed the logos, and included font names in the workbook as well. The nude logo was created for the post, the Grey Jones Logo is for a custom client. I halfway think this is my sneaky and subtle way of creating yet another pink mood board, because there is quite a bit of blush in there.  Everything looks better with a little pink, no?

Some of the swatch book names I had fun coming up with: Spun Sugar, Champagne Fizz, Melon Ball, Pale Ginger, Iced Mocha, Coconut Water, Sheer Cotton, Salted Carmel, Pastel Grey, Creamy Blush.

deluxemodern workbookI used Adobe Illustrator to create this mood board / color palette, but Canva and Pic Monkey have options for making them online. There are lots of ways to pull colors from images, and I use Software called Color Snapper (for Mac, you can get it in the app store).

Along with updating my (long-overdue-website-so -long-in-fact-that-I’m-tired -of saying-it), I will be offering some new services, and removing some as well. One of the things I’ll be offering is Brand Coaching, which, in short, means that I will look over your brand identity and tell you exactly what needs to be done in order to refine and elevate your business. You will end up with clarity, simplicity, and a smart beautiful brand that you have full control of. If I can answer any questions before that info is added to our site, please feel free to contact me:

    I pretty much love these navy and nude colors! I’d like to have the same palette. Is there any way to see the whole collection of colors?

    Indeed, there are lots of ways to pull colors from images, and I suppose that you have chosen the right!

    This soft pink is very stylish and chic colour nowadays. Thank you for the best images with the best content.

    I love this, especially when I saw the feather!!!! Add some sparkle and I would be in heaven!! It is neutral unlike the rose gold, navy, yellow, etc that will only be in for a little while, then having to change all of your packaging, website, etc. It is much easier to change an accent color(s) and using nude as a base, the options are endless. Especially in bridal. I just emailed you, I wish I saw this before I did, I could have babbled a lot less!! Going to stare at this a bit more on my wall for sure !!! Love your work!
