Color Inspiration | Space

Before we start on any project big or small, we dive into planning each of the 7 (yes seven!) design elements. Color is one of the design elements that sets the stage for projects. Every color has it’s own story and mood on it’s own. Combining multiple colors together we are able to visually tell a more complex story and begin to bring projects to life!


My friend, fellow milspouse and talented party planner, Shakira, approached me about creating an invitation and custom watercolor food cards for her space event. She wanted to plan an “out of this world” space event. I absolutely love that while she planned this occasion for one of her little girls, she didn’t want to go into the pinks and purple galaxy outer space. We kept the inspiration from what you think back to from science class space colors: navy blues, orange and teals. Then we brought in a modern twist by bringing the orange a bit towards the Pantone Color of the Year- Living Coral. To round this all out we used a dusky purple for a neutral.




Many creative programs (Adobe Suite, Procreate, etc) have a color picker or color grab tool. Download the image above and use the tool to snag these exact colors in your own project.


Alternatively, the hex codes for each of these colors are listed below so you can quickly copy and paste.





sWe hope you find this color combination inspiring! Check out the amazing photos from this “out of this world” event in our post and on Occasions by Shakira’s blog.

Do you have plans to use these colors? I would love to hear about your project in the comments below!
