I dream of opening a Cupcakery. I have to remind myself that no matter how fun and how cute the store is, it is still work - and lots of work!! But while I dream I imagine how I would start.  What decorations, lighting fixtures, displays - but most of all, what colors????
Here are some of my Fave color palettes from Design Seeds for my dream Cupcakery :)

Love the soft vintage feel of these colors.  There definitely has to be pink!

There also has to be some kind of green or aqua - but this just doesn't quite have a girly feel to it.

I am naturally drawn to the next two because they are based on cupcake photos!
Can't decide if I like the softer vintage tones, or the brighter more fun tones.

I love the way olive green accents the pinks.
But it may not be colorful enough.

I think this one is my Fave!  It incorporates the pink, aqua and olive.

And here's a more toned downed version of the above - but I think I lean towards the brighter hues.
Would the brighter hues be too much after awhile?  Would the vintage colors be too dull?

Aw! I have already designed my own chocolaterie, pastry shop, tarte-cafe and - what I love most - my own sweet shop, that would have a stripy, dotty, patchwork design. It's so much fun to sketch your ideas! Especially determining things like napkins and fork handles (I'd love to have black ones with writings like 'Soooo good' and 'Mmmmmmh!' on it). xD
And I love your choice of vintage colors!

I find that it is super easy to envision the store that we want when we think about what we want it to look like. We will design the whole layout for the store in our heads and then continue to dream bigger.
