Fall 2010′s Strongest Color Combination


I have never been a big fan of yellow – the sunny disposition of this crazy buttercup color has clashed with my naturally sarcastic and dreary disposition. However, this year I softened to the color in it’s mustard incarnation, especially when I saw it paired with gray. Reminiscent of birch trees against cloudy skies, these colors are great for sitting on the porch and sipping hot tea, curling up with a book under a blanket, or going out on the town with friends. There are even some beautiful bridal color pallets out there! Since the leaves are quickly dropping, the end of the season is upon us and I fear that means the end of gray and yellow…

… but I suppose that we get plenty of gray days in the spring, and forsythia does look lovely against those clouds…
