THE COLORS OF AUTUMN…COMFORT AT ITS BEST.

The colors of Autumn are now fully in effect, and there’s no escaping it. Not that I would want to – I love Autumn and all the colors it offers! Carrot orange, mustard yellow, ruby red, and everything in between….and it takes your breath away when profiled against the pale blue of the sky.

I fully believe this color combination is comfort at its best….

….so deliciously enticing and heartbreakingly beautiful; a bit like the Phoenix taking its last breathe before bursting into flames and fading away into ashes.

There also seems to be a weight that comes with Fall; a peacefully reflective weight that forms around the shoulders and tumbles across the body. A weight that you can nestle into, snuggle against, and then sit back and ponder life, family, and the upcoming holidays.

Yes, that’s comfort at its best indeed. And how I would love to live in that comfort all year!

Oh, but I can, you say? Simply by bringing the colors of the outside in…

Orange and Yellow Living room

Country French Color Scheme: Persimmon + Yellow

Analogous Color Scheme: Goldenrod + Kumquat

Orange and yellow living room. So cheerful!

…dressing the part….

Orange, yellow, blue and stripes. Love it!

…and eating foods that are Fall ripened and delicious?

Saffron, a delicate yellow-orange spice, comes from the dried, cured stigmas of the purple saffron flower. You'll find it at most grocery stores and specialty food markets.  Get more   healthy holiday recipes
