color story #1

Even though I failed color theory in college, I love a good color story. During my days at Martha Stewart, I did these for every story I shot, no matter how small. They help reign in the stylist, inspire the crafter, and give the story some cohesion. Color stories aren't meant to be limiting, I love adding a surprise accent of a color you hadn't thought of before.. a colored rim of a plate here, a bright thin ribbon there. 

I thought I'd share some of my favorite color stories, some from projects in the past, others in the future. This one won't be in print for another year, so I'll have to keep what it's for hush hush.

You didn't really, did you? And how did you take such a nice photo of those swatches, with no ugly shadows or weird discolorations?

I have little piles of these all over my studio. My husband thinks it's a mess, my kids think it's fun and I like to be reminded of the colors I love, especially the ones that remind you (or at least me) of my childhood mismatching days (and now, my kids). Love reading your blog,

Where did you find these fabrics?
