HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!
I’m bringing you some soft spring greens today too. Now you know that I love me some greens and these are NO exception! The BIG surprise to me was that the Souffle Robin Egg, mixed with Latte 1:1 made a lovely soft green! I was thinking I would get a cooler version of Latte and (as usual) I couldn’t have been more wrong! Each one of these mixes are great! Once again Canary held it’s own with a mix color. In fact, the Latte only toned down the Canary and, once again, shifted to a green. I though Pistachio would hold out with the Latte as well, but that mix took a BIG step to the darker side, creating an almost Sage color! I’m betting I have all three of these mixed colors in my house somewhere! LOL
Now, for the sub-palettes. I love the 3 1:1 mixes together. I can imagine them with wood tones as well as with cool greys-functioning as the pop of color against the cool (or warm) neutral. (Big intake of breath – I JUST bought a Graphite colored blouse! – gotta do something with these colors for it! The Robin Egg-Latte-Latte/Canary palette would look great against a soft buttery cream color wouldn’t it? The pistachio-Latte-Pistachio/Latte 1:1 sub-palette are wonderful colors to contrast with a warm brown or even a blue like the Robin Egg. Again, this sub-palette would look great with wood tones as well. All of these sub-palettes would make great kitchen colors as well. (No surprise, but my kitchen is just as colorful as the rest of my house!
