Color Inspired by Nature
So often I am asked how long before a color will be out of style. We all remember the mauve period in the late 80's right? I believe that longevity of a sustainable color is often predicted by whether or not the color is found in nature. When making color selections, select a color palette that will stand the test of time, choose colors that you see in nature. Imagine the beautiful amber tones seen in this photo as a fantastic paint color for an accent wall in a guest bathroom, or the color of a wonderful shag area rug in a laundry room, or even the color of built-in cabinetry used in a library or home office. The possibilities are endless. The next time you take a walk on the beach or a stroll through the park be sure to take notice of the colors around you, you may be surprised where you might find your color inspiration.
