Work on the book continues. I was away from the farm for a few days - writing and typing and trying to pull it all together. We got back to the farm and November has arrived a few days early. While I was away, most of the leaves blew off the trees. It is such a stark difference from the gorgeous color of last week.
Here are a few photos of what it looks like here now. Still pretty, albeit a bit bleak.
We are expecting a hard frost tonight with the possibility of a dusting of snow tomorrow. Brrrrrrrrrr.
Benjamin Moore released their "Color of the Year" along with a coordinating color pallette.
How they came around to it.....
Here is the complete "2017 Color Palette" from Benjamin Moore. As you can see, they are still there with the pastels and whites but it is nice to see some more interesting rich and evocative colors being promoted.
I would have loved a job like the women featured in the second video - following color trends and developing a collection. Oh wait - I did that at one time -- but with yarn.
The dark shades looks a lot like Abigail Ahearn's Paint Line that she introduced a while ago. See that here. Hers are really deep and rich but I'm thinking most of America couldn't do them.
Look at these dark and exotic wallpapers. Gorgeous.
Color trends go around and around. I think it is rather bold of Benjamin Moore to pump the dark shades. It will be interesting to see what the other paint companies say for 2017.
