When I create things on my own and pick out a color scheme and just go with it, I usually have no real idea in how I want it all to be, Its a lot of moving colors and guessing. Thats really what makes it fun! I love creating something out of so many materials!
As far as custom orders, the client always chooses the colors and I have them send over a palette, or an image of something that inspires it, the place in which its going so that I can also feel the same feelings they have when they see it every day in their home!
The color scheme for this one includes lavenders, light pinks, a pop of bright magenta and some pearly whites. Enjoy!
