1980's and 1990's Color Palettes

Long time no post! Let's get back into the blogging habit with some color palettes! Personally, I really love the colors that were used a lot in the 80's and early 90's. It's not all just dayglo neons, but also a lot of really charming pastels. These color swatches were inspired from a variety of different advertisements, clothes, and toys that were available in the 80's and 90's.

It's hard to put your finger on what exactly makes the color schemes popular in the era so special. I think perhaps that the girly colors aren't the traditional pastel rainbow but are instead filled with salmon pinks, turquoise blues, aqua greens, and peachy oranges. An so often they're combined with bold black an white or some other vivid color!
