Teal & Forest Green

The latest Martha Stewart Living magazine contains a segment on holiday wreaths. While flipping through the pages of this segment, I flipped right past this picture:

At first glance, I didn't think much of this picture, and I'm not sure why. But over the last week or so, whenever I close my eyes, I envision this festive winter-y doorway! Call me crazy, but this color palette has totally struck me and I am now completely enamored with teal & forest green hues.

The colors are just a smidge apart in the color spectrum, which makes them perfectly complimentary to one another. The stark contrast of the white door frame, makes the door & wreaths really pop.

Just think of how amazing a color palette of teal + forest green + white or cream would be! Sophisticated, yet current.

Using the DeGraeve color palette generator, I created this palette:

Beware! This is another tool you could mess with all day!
Anyways, you could bring this palette with you when picking out bridesmaid dresses, flowers, linens, invitations... I could go on and on, but I won't!
