Color Inspiration - Latte

Comfortable conversation and an artful latte (mine with hemp milk) at Rococo Roasting House where the decor echoes the subtle colors of coffee in all it's stages. Smooth, rich and earthy.

Color Inspiration - Anthropologie Cloth Rainbow

Who can resist Anthropologie's gorgeous window displays? This one was in Milwaukee a few years back - a stunning rainbow of analogous colors. Though this photo only captured the orange through green range, the store boasted a full rainbow of saturated hues.

Wouldn't it be fun to dress up a window like this? Red-orange through yellow-green, or perhaps a more watery feel in greens, teals and blues... stick within the same ring of the color wheel for a luscious rainbow of color!

Color Inspiration - Blue Blown Glass

Looking on the inside of my wine glass as the light glows through it, I'm reminded that all colors go together, especially if they lie on the same color wheel and have similar saturation.

Now for the wine...

Color Inspiration - Wooden Boom

Rich golden hues of wood ranging from yellow through orange to red add warmth against the cool blue grey water. An expanded complementary relationship in the depths of the warm earthtone color wheel.
