Color Wheels

I am on this stream of consciousness thing this morning…creative optimism leads to optimistic color leads to color charts….

Anyway, a couple of color related things for you.

Kinsman has this fun Gardeners color Wheel.  So interesting….

When I am thinking about colors, I tend to use a book that I bought while in design school called Garden Color Palette by Paul Williams.  I love it for ideas…because about 90% of the plants in it aren’t available to me.  I can’t find it anywhere but on amazon.co.uk…and it is currently unavailable.  I think that Garden Color Book might be an updated American version.  Maybe the plants are a bit more accessible…either way, it’s flip chart, mix and match pages and unique styling are so inspiring you can easily justify the purchase.

    I just discovered your blog! I loved the swimming pool idea, then I scrolled down and found Sydney’s Color wheel! Do you know about her book on color in the garden — The Gardener’s Palette, Creating Color in the Garden (ISBN 0-8092-9893-7) 2002. It is so beautifully written that you can actually visualize the colors – which, as a winter read for those of us in the Northeast, is a lovely thing.
