While I was searching my image library for a suitable photograph for this months colour palette I came across this image, which I love. It makes me feel Autumnal, displaying all that’s right about Autumn, but not in the traditional sense. No oranges, reds and golds, but still Autumn to me.
I love the soft greens, just before the leaves turn and drop, nothing like the acid greens of Spring and the strong and strident Summer greens. Combine these with the warm velvety black and russet red of the fruits I feel a warmth. Not the sunny Summer warmth, but the enveloping warmth of a blanket, snuggled around you while you sit in front of the fire on a cold November evening.
Hm… Blankets… This could be next A/W’s colour palette for blankets, cushions, throws… Must run and put this on paper (or my new Behance Action Method software)
