Colors of the Season


September is here and we are entering beautiful fall, a season I love for its peaceful melancholic mood. I love the crispy smell of fall, the crunchiness of the leaves, the changes of colors and the taste of pumpkin spices. I have a color among my merino wool, it is named after pumpkin spice. It is deep orange with a hint of cinnamon. I love creating accents with this color, mixing it with gold and berry red. 

I was ordering more wool for my designs and I realized that I was running out of greens. My favorite green is kelly green, which is what I make my leaves out of. Well, I was told that it was not popular anymore and I can’t get it. I was very disappointed as that was my brightest green, so I had to find a new color. 

After a search I decided to mix my own green. I took wool of jade and pine, and added a pinch of garden ivy and for the new season my new green was born! I love creating and mixing my own colors. It reminds me my childhood, when my absolute favorite activity was coloring. 

We need colors for our mood, colors evoke emotions and create our atmosphere. 

Did you know that yellow captures the joy of sunshine and communicates happiness? Green is considered the most restful color for the eye. 

"Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions," the artist Pablo Picasso once said. 

 Enjoy the colors of fall!

Love and Peace.
