Mood Board #129: Black Forest
By L. K. on Mar 19, 2014 at 5:00 am in
Today’s board was inspired by a “caketail” concocted by Lucy Heath of Capture by Lucy. She developed a delicious drinkable version of Black Forest gâteau, named after the tart cherry liqueur that originates in the Black Forest region of southwestern Germany and is used in traditional recipes for this beloved dessert. Lucy’s beautiful photographs of her boozy, Black Forest–flavored creations, which were served in homemade ice glasses, gave them a moody, eerily magical feel. We played off this air to create an evocation of the dark side of fairy tales. The color palette includes hibernal blue, icy pink, and red the color of Snow White’s poisoned apple.
