Color Palette: Summer in the City

By: Danielle Clockel

Beaches are great, and lakes are cool, and tropical getaways are chill and everything, but can we take a moment to appreciate city summers? Sherbet tones in the late evening sky and blue shadows on the ground framed by the silhouettes of trees and buildings create a dreamy color palette that often goes overlooked.

Is there anything more nostalgic of childhood summers than a lake? Cool waters, lush trees, and maybe a canoe or two. Where’s the tire swing? We wanna jump in!

We’ve still got a ways to go before any sort of warm weather, but we’re already getting inspired by the lively colors of Morocco, Mexico, and Spain. Expect bold, saturated, sophisticated color combos this spring and summer!

Color Obsession: Autumn Explosion

By: Danielle Cornely

Autumn is in full swing and color is everywhere! Let’s take a minute to appreciate the full range of hues this season has to offer. Of course there’s burnt ochres, fiery reds, and rich browns, but there is also a whole palette of gorgeous, less known colors. Chartreuse, aubergine, and cool grey are the supporting cast, and we think it’s time for them to shine.
