You all know I have been in a lockdown mood of regorganzing the flat but I have stopped short of painting. That is for a few reasons, mainly because we rent the flat and would have to then paint it back to white before we leave and we have nowhere to move furniture or stay while in the process. However, that is not say you can not get inspired. In fact, many of you might because while this pin is more than four years old it still brings hundreds of you to Sparkles and Shoes per month. What surprises me is those snapshots scream Summer and I would expect Winter color palette ideas to be trending this time of year.
In August 2016 I published a post called Inspiring Ocean Color Palettes featuring the gorgeous designs of Jessica Colaluca, the power house behind Design Seeds and one of my favorite sources of inspiration. While these are gorgeous they are not quite seasonally relative so I wanted to share some of her latest Autumn and Winter designs that I have found particularly inspiring. However, after downloading quote a few beautiful Autumn ones I decided not to share them because while Winter does not officially start until the solstice on December 21st Fall seems like a distant memory. Thus, my favorite Winter color palette ideas:
Even though I said I was not going to paint our apartment these posts have me so inspired – maybe I could make a compromise and get new decorations. Something like a new cranberry comforter or new seasonal throw pillows? Or what about a velvet sofa like these ones from Anthropologie or this Cozy Pom Pom Sherpa Throw from Pottery Barn? Talk about swoon. Okay, let me stop there before I get a bit out of control.
What do you think of these Winter color palette?
