Falling into Autumn
Tuesday was the first day of autumn and we are loving the crisp mornings and the inspiring colors of fall foliage. Mother Nature is begging us to take a long walk in the woods! Think about having a tea party to usher in the harvest season (hint hint Sari…an excuse to use that antique tea set!). Get some branches, leaves, vines, and other interesting pieces to provide a timeless seasonal backdrop to your fall wedding or party. Have pumpkins and gourds and use nature to add little touches that have great impact. Look into taking a fall foliage trip sometime between now and mid-October to take in the glorious hues of Autumn!
According to Pantone’s Master List report on color from New York’s fashion week, some of the hot colors for Fall are: Honey Yellow (deep yellow-orange), Burnt Sienna (pinkish-orange), Warm Olive (olive green), and Creme Brulee (beige). (Interior, textile, and fashion designers, artists, and others in design related fields use this list, as do we.) These hot colors are both vibrant and cozy warm; just right for nesting, cocooning, and getting ready for colder weather.
