Colour Inspiration Tuesday: a free resource of colour combinations to try on your quilts.
It’s Tuesday again already! This week we have a classic colour combination that I think I’ll never tire of. Calming blues with warm browns. Inspired by a stunning photo of a fox curled up in snow reflecting blue light….. I’m calling this palette “Blue Fox”.
Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Blue Fox
The “Blue Fox” colour palette is light steel blue, cadet blue, grey, dark olive, brown, mid brown, light slate and dark olive. Use these different colours in different proportions to get the effect you want. If you use a high proportion of blues, you will produce a very calming palette. Alternatively, focusing on the browns with blue highlights will give a very masculine look – maybe just the thing for a quilt for your favourite bloke? Using the two colour families in equal proportions will give a very lovely. mature palette that would look great on the wall or couch. Like always, there are no right or wrong combinations, just the ones you prefer and those you don’t.
Blue and Brown not your thing? That’s ok!
If you like warmer, much redder colours than “Blue Fox”, you may like “Butterfly Loves Red” instead!
