The following examples were grabbed from Pinterest. Each color palette will be linked to the original source along with credit attributed within the caption. The HEX codes will also be cited under each image in case you’d like to copy and paste them directly from this post.

The red dress against the dull yellow color of the van makes for a nice contrast with the muddy shade of the trees in the background.

The aged appeal of this photo along with the contrasting colors makes for one of my preferred 70s color palettes with hex.
