Board No. 17: St. Valentine’s

16 February 2009

{Click to enlarge!}

Two days late for Valentine’s Day, but because I’m a proponent of celebrating love every day (not just on February 14), this seems appropriate. Jenifer Altman’s photograph of love notes crammed in to soft leather pouches was my inspiration for this board, but I had a really hard time with this one, because as lush and gorgeous as pink and red are together, they risk veering into a big romantic cliche.

What do you think – does this board work? Or have you had your fill of pink and red for the year? Would you use this palette for a wedding, or should it only inspire, say, Valentine’s Day parties?
