Your opinions please

Hey everyone - can I get your opinions on something?

I working on a project and the main fabric is a deep plum wool knit.  I'm trying to decide what accent color I like best with the plum color. 

To be honest, I actually like all three - for three different reasons - which is why I need some opinions.

I tried getting an opinion out of my hubby but he pulled the ole "you know I'm not that good at coordinating colors" excuse.

I then tried the ole "you know I haven't really decided on any of them so I'm not asking you to pick the one I like best" comment, but no go.  That man's pretty smart :-)  Except this time I really didn't have a favorite and really did want his opinion.

So which of these three options for an accent pops out at you?  The color is a bit off due to my photography, but I think you can get a good idea.

Option A is multi-colored with hints of the exact shade of plum
Option B is a muted plum tone
Option C is a brighter berry plum tone

Thanks for your help!

  1. I always like a pop of color, so I would do Option A. But of course it will depend on the pattern and the effect you are trying to achieve.

  2. I pick option B. You know you are going to end up with a completely split vote right!?!

  3. Option A is gorgeous! Thats an easy pick!

  4. I love a print, so I'm drawn to A, but C really makes both colors pop.

  5. I do like A, the print, but I wonder if it's a bit too different from the maing fabric? I'd have to see what you're making to be sure.

    B gives a nice subtle contrast without being jarring.

    C seems a bit too red to go nicely with your plum.

  6. I like A, Sharon. Depending on what you're making (like a jacket from the accent), you might get more mileage from A than the others - it's got the kind of coloring that goes with everything.

  8. "A" is a definite for me bar none.

  9. I'd recognize that "Option A" anywhere, and can speak for it first-hand. It's beautiful fabric, and will garner many, many compliments.

  11. I keep looking at A, so that's my vote!

  12. I like B, good luck deciding.

  13. Well, it depends... It is hard for me to give an opinion without a bit more context, but my least favorite is B. That one seems a bit "dead" to me. I like A very much, but maybe C is better for your particular application. So, A or C. :D

    I'd pick option A. Great contrast, and the the fabric contains the main color, so it's not too far off.

    B is too boring in my opinion. C too obvious.

  20. In case you have not made up up your min yet , I say option Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Option A. In a heart beat. I have a poll going on on my blog too :)

  22. I like A the best, I think. The extra colors seem like it would make it more wearable with many more other colors. Unless you are doing a large color-block garment, the *maybe* I'd go with B. The C tends to put the color combination dangerously close to "Barbie" territory to my eyes. I like pink & purple, but the combination has just been way overdone in the girls section of the toy aisle.

  24. I think A adds a lot of interest, so I vote A

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like the muted purple the best (B).

    And funny, I just bought a deep purple wool sweater knit myself!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Like you need yet another opinion... I vote for A.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the combination A. It caught my eye immediately.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would pick A. It is the most interesting to me...the second choice would be C.

    ReplyDelete
  29. A. It was my favorite. That print is interesting. And it seems like it's an easy choice on the computer, but I wonder in real life...

    Happy sewing!

  30. I prefer Option A because I love the way Aquas and Plums look together.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like B. I like it because it is more muted - which is like my colouring. What suits you best?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I vote for A - really pretty fabric..

    ReplyDelete
  33. Option A for me, it's lovely, and bright.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love that pink and purple combo. Go with Option C.
