Autumn is where the magic happens.
It marks the return of the pumpkin spice everything, bon fires, s’mores, colorful crunchy leaves, cooler weather, and crafting. This is the time of year that I really like going for a drive down a winding backroad and looking at all the pretty colors of the foliage, and even break out all my baking supplies. I just can’t resist baking (and devouring) an amazing pumpkin pie! Mmmm.. Yum!
I also love bringing the warm, earthy, inspirational colors of the season into my home, and using color palettes is the best way I know how. Then I go absolutely ape-shit crazy! It’s actually quite exciting for me (in a geeky designer way). I just power on the radio and start finding colors in photos that represent the season. I get in the zone, and next thing I know, I’ve created hundreds of color palettes. Whoops!
Get to crafting!
Picking out a color palette is a process that can take a few minutes to a few days (and inevitably winds up with me changing my mind a bazillion times). Once I figure that out, I’m ready to begin crafting. My fall crafting consists of knitting and crochet for the most part, and these color palettes help me pick and choose the colors to use in my projects. You see, being creative doesn’t have to be strictly confined to the digital world – it can also be used in other parts of life like interior design and décor, fashion, crafts, painting, and even landscaping!
The gallery below contains twenty of my favorite color palettes for the fall season. It was really hard to narrow them down a bit, but I managed – HA! Also, for you digital designers out there (who might be creating some flyers for fall fundraisers or even stickers for your planner), I’ve got you covered – HEX codes are included!
