Blogtoberfest day 17
There is nothing better than a beautiful, cool, crisp fall day. Vibrant reds and yellows shadowed by a rich bluebird sky, the smell of burning wood in the air,the snow slowly creeping down the mountain. It almost makes me look forward to winter. Almost…..
I tend to surround myself with rich colors at this time of year. I change-up my surroundings to be richer in color with more texture. I fill the fridge with comfort food – hearty soups, cheese and bread. My favorite fall boots and sweaters come out to play.
I feel very lucky to live with seasonal change. I could do with a little longer summer, but oddly I forget just how short it is on a beautiful bluebird day like today.
All this rich, vibrant color, knocking me over every time I step out the door has got to go somewhere. Being a neutral kind of girl is not always so easy on days like today.
So, what am I doing with all of this bottled up inspiration?
A work in progress. Lots of color (for me!) Big, organic,leafy shapes…that will be expanded upon.I am thinking…fun, flamboyant and happy.This is in the beginning stages, but I have very high expectations for it.
Check out the paint chips below.I chose these colors before anything. I want all of these colors to be incorporated in the finished product. Trust me, I have had to keep them very close at hand so as not to veer from the colors desired.
Beautiful colors with beautiful names.. Not entirely sure how I am going to incorporate them all, but if I go for enough walks in the woods, I am sure it will come to me. Fingers crossed!
