Color Inspiration…Road Trip

road trip and fall colors

Time for some color inspiration today. Autumn is fast approaching and I always get excited when this time of year comes around. I love the cool crisp air and the transition into richer more subdued colors. I took this photo on a road trip we took to Chicago this summer. Thought there were some nice fall colors hidden in this summer sunset. What do you think?

Till next time…

Color Inspiration…Vintage Carnival

I’ve got another shot of color inspiration for you today. I was looking through some amazing photos. Color photos from the Great Depression and it was so moving to see these photos in color. It made that era come to life. We’re so used to seeing all the black & white photos it almost doesn’t feel real sometimes. But seeing it in color brings it into the same context as we see things everyday, in color. It made me feel even more connected to these people.

The photo I chose above really popped out at me when I saw it. The rich colors, graphic carnival banners and 1940’s gent drew me in and made me wonder what it would have been like to be there on that bright sunny day.

Does this photo draw you in as much as it does me? Would love to hear what you think. Till next time…

Color Inspiration… Spring Dress

Color Inspiration

Always Genevieve and Lucy Spring Dress

Happy Spring everyone! This is a photo of my little Lucy that I just love. I’ve wanted to share it for a long time, but didn’t know in what context to do so. Then the thought came to me, one of the reasons I love this photo (besides that it is my little Lulu) is because of the colors. This gave me a flash of inspiration, I should start a recurring post theme about color! So I will. I’m simply calling it “Color Inspiration…”. From time to time, I will share with you some hues that inspire. Maybe it will help give you a vision for a wedding, a baby nursery, a room you want to remodel, or just a break from your busy day. Let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy!

Which of these colors are you most drawn to? Your feedback could help me select some new colors for my stationery designs. Thanks for your help! Till next time…
