Hunting Color in the Woods

When I walk in the woods, I'm that person on their hands and knees saying, "will you look at the colors in this moss!" and "this mushroom coming out of this green decaying log is blowing my mind!" There's one like me in every group. Right? Right? Every color is found somewhere in nature and the combinations create the most amazing palettes! I took these pictures last week when I was spending some time with dear friends at their place in the North Georgia Mountains. The colors are drawn directly out of the photos and I think would make a great palette for any home. So beautifully serene!

…a doorstop that welcomes and marks the entrance to the home, amazing exterior colors on the little cabin and a chair on a screened-in porch that, if you close your eyes, you can hear beaconing you to rock in it.

And, of course, dear friends. Thanks for the relaxing and inspiring (and delicious!) stay, Ken and Bentley!

Ahhh, wonderful! Now that the weather is starting (and then stopping and then starting) to warm, I'm getting ready to be inspired by the beach! Can I get an "Amen!"

Water-inspired color palette, here. I. come.
