Another Color Palette From Mother Nature

Shall we take another look at Mother Nature for some lovely Fall color combinations. If you remember from my last post I am trying to find some fun combinations that don’t include all of the typical Fall/Autumn colors of gold, brown and rust or orange.

Just look at this lovely Fall image……..

Are you ready to see Fall colors through different eyes?

This post is for all  you turquoise and aqua lovers. We are going to darken it up a bit, add a splash of gold,and maybe a touch of brown in the form of espresso or tobacco to get a perfect Fall look for your home……….

In the above image the teal comes in the form of the grass cloth and velvet seat cushion of the chair. Gold is in the form of the metals used in this lovely vignette.
For those of you that a little braver, how about  a little darker and brighter teals and gold?………..

I think an arrangement of simple wheat or even sunflowers would really complete this dining room for a fall look, don’t you?

Do you have any furniture pieces that could take on a whole new look with a coat of paint? How about a touch of dark teal for your project with soft gold chairs?…….

I think this color combination would be so perfect for a beach house. By just making your favorite colors in a darker value you can have a whole new look for your home.

I know we have all seen a French provincial coffee table like the one above. It has been given a whole new life as a bench and it is now wearing a nice deep coat of teal paint.

Teal grasscloth is so stunning!

Keep open to new color combinations and cozy up with some dark teal and gold………
