a Venice-inspired color palette

a Venice-inspired color palette // blue, stone, warm gray [pinit]

 

Today's color inspiration comes from a window that caught my eye in Venice. Moorish influence on Venetian Gothic architecture can be seen throughout the city, namely in the shape of arches like this one. I love the little plants peeking through the stonework, too.

Just for fun, I'm throwing in The Orders of Venetian Arches by John Ruskin (1853, Vol. 2 of The Stones of Venice) so you can play "Find That Arch." Happy Friday!
