Let me introduce you to the first 4 of our 8 new, Fall | Winter 2015 Colors
I know that January is technically the start of a new year, but there’s always been something about fall that feels fresh, bright, and full of the promise of a new start. (The “Back to school” mentality applies to adults, too, right?) Either way, I’m so excited to introduce my fall and winter line. We’ve got a line-up of eight new colors, which I’ve been mixing and planning all summer, just counting down the days until the official launch, and now here we are! While the line was planned as a cohesive unit, I found that I had unintentionally divided the colors into two seasons – fresh fall and cool winter. So with no further ado, let’s meet our fall entries…
Mulberry: What can I say? I’m a girl who loves pink, especially when it reminds me of berries and punch. Rich and vibrant, mulberry is the transition piece that helps ease you from summer into fall – bright enough to keep your spirits up, but warm enough to make you excited for apple picking, pie making, and mulled wine drinking.
Sycamore: Nothing says fall more than changing leaves. Here in Minnesota, it’s an explosion of color filled with fiery reds, burnt oranges, and toasty yellows. Sycamore is that perfect fall leaf (you know the kind I’m talking about): crisp, saturated with color, and pulsing with nature’s beauty.
Saffron: There’s something very dreamy about getting lost in a book during the fall. A mug of tea in one hand, a book in the other, and the inevitable feeling of being transported far, far away. Saffron was inspired by those book-fueled daydreams – you may be at home, but in your mind, you’re adventuring and exploring a new land, replete with a jumble of languages, bustling markets, and warm spices. Saffron is an everyday reminder to continue to have those daydreaming adventures (and eventually make them real).
Chestnut: While s’mores scream summer, the warm smell of roasting chestnuts is a sure harbinger of cooler weather. (And ohmygosh do they smell delicious.) If the Danish concept of ‘hygge’ were a scent, I’m pretty sure roasted chestnuts would be the representative. Nutty, filling, and cozy, chestnut makes you happy to throw on your warmest flannel and cuddle up with your loved ones by the fire.
What are you inspired by this coming season? Let me know in the comments below, and stay tuned for next week’s introduction to the winter colors!
