Eggplant? Plum?

i mean really, I’m seeing “brown-y purple” and “purple” but I assume you want something more specific

I would call them plum (darker) and mulberry (lighter). Pretty!

The first was described as “Inspirations: tea cups, neutral colors, plum, purple florals, burlap, vintage furniture”


The blog that published the second pic described it as a peach and plum wedding.


I see shades of purple and plum in both inspiration boards. Plum to me is on the red side of purple but nowhere near burgundy which I would group in the wine category.

I wouldn’t call either of them wine.

It’s hard to say what the official names are. I bet if any Bees work in graphic design they’d likely be more help. I’d say at the top we have plum, raspberry, peach and grey. At the bottom I’d say pinkish-lavender, rose, wine, clementine, and beige.

Basically warm colors with shades of purple, rose and peach.

I think of “wine” as being more red-based.  NEaring burgandy.  These colors are much cooler, more neutral.  I’d use names like eggplant (darker shade) and plum (mid-range).  I love these color boards!

I think of wine as more of a burgundy, and I do think those colors are more in the purple family, like plum.

They’re aubergine and mauve to me, although mauve can mean a lot of different things to different people so I’d second dusty rose as well.

If you all like the colors but aren’t sure which variation you like, I would recommend going to Walmart/Lowes and picking out different paint chips and putting them together. Then look and see which one appeals to you all more: a more wine-based palette or a plum-based one.
