    Southwestern colors

    I have a client that needs some work done with a southwestern color scheme. Does anyone have a link to a pallette I can look at for ideas? It would be great if the hex codes were available but they do not have to be.

    Thanks,
    Palmer

    No wait I have seen that one. Those are a little too dark, maybe I was thinking of a different name for the color scheme, something with coral, and that bluish green stone, the name escapes me right now.

    Anyone have a clue what I'm talking about? Back in the '80's there was a big trend for southwestern design themes in home decor. I used to have a Southwestern bathroom. Those are the colors I have in mind.

    I don't know what your bathroom looks like, Palmer! ;-p

    Seriously, what you're talking about seems to have more of an island flare, what with coral and aquamarine, 80ish colors. When I think of "Southwest," I think of Texas and the cowpoke/frontier scheme with a wide-brimmed hat and spurs on the boots. When I think of the colors you mentioned, I think of lying in a hammock barefoot under giant palm trees at the beach.

    Alas, I am nowhere near a palm tree, a beach or a hammock. :-(

    But I am barefoot! :-D

    I think you're right those do sound more like island colors. Oh well, I think I came up with something she'll like. Thanks for the help

    Hiya Palmer. Bluish-green stone, do you mean turquoise?

    Sounds like you're talking about more of a Native American kind of color scheme. Sedona, Arizona - that kind of thing. Give me a second and I'll whip-up a little palette and post it here.

    YES! Turquoise that's the name of the color. It's tough when you get close to 40

    Perfect palette too. You're the best. Maybe that can be your next "Get the Look". Thanks Adam.
