The Colourful Season

Ahhhhhhh………Autumn.   This  particular season brings us fresh brisk air, the harvest from our local farmers and stunning warm colours to make one’s soul dance.

The gals here at Linden Grove love this time of the year.  The beauty is all around in so many forms.

The markets are brimming with fruits and vegetables in the most glorious tones.   Everything from crimson red, orange and dusty green to rich plum tones, hot pinks and vibrant green.  Although the Autumn tends to conjure up images of fiery tones, we do prefer more monochromatic mixes of flowers.  We feel each colour should show off individually.

It is more appealing for us to mix very hot orange tones with chartreuse green rather than yellow………that just seems too expected.

White mixed with brown  is another favorite colour blend of ours as the magnolia leaves with their shiny green upper leaf and brown velvety under side of the leaf are just so striking and beautiful.

Mauve and purple tones married with a rich crimson red is just ooh-la-la decadent and we like that a lot!

Here are various photos of our designs and the markets that inspire us so.

Enjoy this most joyous time of year.
