Fall Palette

After sitting in my garden yesterday and enjoying tea on a beautiful fall afternoon, I scanned my garden, or at least what is left of it, and came to a realization... the fall color palette is one of my favorite combinations of color. For some reason I have always been drawn to deep pinks and purples, but especially in combination with warm oranges, yellows, and reds. I know that it might be a little boring to stay on one side of the color wheel, but these colors just speak to me. So much so that these are the inspiration colors in my living room... my favorite room in the house.

Since living in Germany, I have never appreciated a warm summer so much, which makes leaving this one behind especially hard, but I am excited about the array of colors that nature has inspired. Do you have a favorite season color palette?


  1. Tes photos sont magnifiques !!!

  2. simply beautiful... the colors in that last one are really melancholic.

  3. I think I am in love with the summer palate. Maybe because I look terriable in Fall colors, but summer reminds me of the turquiose of the ocean in Greece, yellow of sunflowers, fushia, and green of the grass. I really love how Indians choose really vibrant colors. They just seem to make the world more alive.

  4. I totally agree with you that autumn is the best season (and spring) to appreciate nature's colours. Beautiful shots.

  7. It was a short and not so warm summer this year but I found myself ready to enjoy the fall colors that seemed to magically start appearing in early September. I've just put out some fall decorations- burgundy, browns, creams and am quite enjoying the look. And nice flower shots!
