Today is Earth Day. I thought it relevant to talk about how nature can provide fabulous direction for Interior Design.
Early this morning I dug up some beets from my raised garden bed. I took the time to really look at the marvel that had been produced from a tiny seed. The color of the beets are very on trend right now.
They are the color of Marsala–Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year.
And nature shows us what other colors work beautifully with Marsala–a rich organic green is the perfect complimentary color. After all, red and green are compliments on the color wheel and the two tones of those colors are the same saturation level.
Beyond the color of the beets, their stems, and leaves, I also took the time to examine the contours and shapes of the beet and it’s stems and leaves.
I have often said the easiest way to check it color combinations will work well together is to look to nature. Flowers, trees, shrubs all seem to magically grow and bloom in just the right colors.
