From pumpkin ice cream
to fall color on the trees:
rich oranges, golds, and cinnamons

Here, the spice colors come inside.
The deep and velvety colors
in this simple bedroom absolutely glow.
On a white ground,
and with white and pale pink sprinkled in,
the spice colors in this simple vignette
feel light and floaty.
Somewhere between velvety saturation
and a breezy plea for rain,
this workspace mellows some of the colors
while punching up the hot pink.
This Spectacular Design kitchen embodies
the spice color story in terra cotta and black.
The spice color story
can be told infinitely many ways,
from pow pow pow pow!
to mellifluous and breezy.

This graphic gig poster
is a cerebral yet whimsical
take on the color story.
And this is a saturated version
by one of my favorite artists, Odilon Redon.
One of the many things I love
about his work is that while
his colors are deep and saturated,
he still leaves room for introspection.
Fired up with bright white and dynamic shapes,
here the spice color story positively dances.

this must be the Door to Happiness………..
