The Palette Project #24: Lichen
This is another edition of the palette project– we’re exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful.
Our inspiration photo this week doesn’t feature a sweeping view, mountaintops, or one of the oceans that surround our country… we looked down and zoomed in. In Gros Morne park Newfoundland, we found a rock. Our eyes were immediately drawn to the natural combination of colours and textures. Among the greens and browns of the hiking trail, these hues really stood out– take a look!
Purple and green are popular colours coming to 2018– so why not focus on those gorgeous tones from our inspiration photo? We chose two purple-grey tones from the rock surface and a green was pulled from the lichen. With those three colours you could do dark accents or a combination of off-whites and the palette would come together nicely. What was really striking about our inspiration is how the greens are punctuated by deep greys, your eye goes directly to these intricate lichen patterns with their dark outlines– so dark accents it is! We love how peaceful and cohesive this palette is, and it’s all from a rock!
Next Sunday we’ll have new inspiration and new colours to share with you! Each of these palettes is created by Designers Collective. We encourage you to use them for inspiration!
