I love contrasts. I love contrasts in landscapes, in people's personalities and interests, in fashion, in art, in life. I love contrasts of attitudes, of textures, of lights, of shapes, and naturally, I love contrasts of colors. I just feel that contrasts almost always add depth, in almost any circumstances.
I fell in love with this photo from Twigs & Honey (via 100 Layer Cake) mostly because of the contrast between the pale, almost dull blush color and the vivid, almost indecent scarlet red- and I just had to turn it into a color palette post!
