It's that time of the week again, we've got the blues 'cause the weekend just ended, but we're going to beat them blues together with the Monday Hues! Today we are featuring a palette of blue and charcoal drawn from a vintage Royal typewriter. When I see this palette, I envision a set of elegant wedding invitations on bright white card stock with modern calligraphy in charcoal blue ink. It also makes me think of New York City. And an elegant gala with women in gorgeous evening gowns and well groomed men in tuxes.
What does this palette inspire or remind you of? Please, do tell in the comments below!
Have a lovely week, my friends!
