Spring doesn't come for a long time yet here in Minnesota, but an important step for me to beat the winter blah's, as the weather begins to get a teensy bit warmer, is to develop my palette for the upcoming season. That's just the way it works for me, always has. Then I can begin to move forward. After my thoughts in my post yesterday about always going back to my default color palette for spring, I decided to make some changes. So while watching the Olympics last night (Amazing!!) I poured through dozens of magazines, catalogs, etc. to try to develop a new palette that would pique my interest and would feel fresh and new to incorporate into my spring wardrobe and decorating. A little personal challenge. I came up with the following inspiration pages. They are definitely warmer tones, rather than cooler, which I usually do for spring. Not much in the way of blue or pink. More creamy beige, green, soft brown and coral. They feel more earthy and calm to me. I think I like it!
This process has been fun. I'm hoping it will motivate me to try some new things this spring and push myself a bit. We'll see!
