On Color Pops and cleverness
Color makes us feel alive.
Where we place it makes us feel clever.
Colors leads you to places you would not normally go to!
How about this woman? I think she usually likes to wear neutral colors. This amazing fashionable dress she has would look totally different if it were in the orange pop that she has on her hat. Perhaps in the orange the clean sharp lines and drape would be totally lost. She added color by inviting you to see that pop of orange first and then you look at the rest of the garment styling. Perhaps you want to use colors that you are comfortable with but there are those other colors that keep speaking to you. Look for a pattern that will enable you to use them. Take a look at Stephen West's Reis. Look at the different photos of this very traditional sweater and take note of color pops. It is amazing how one pattern can look so different based on color selection.

Go ahead, give it a try. Play with the colors you have been wanting to. It is the perfect opportunity for playing with the crayon box of colors that we have thanks to Hedgehog Fibres and Madelinetosh.
