December Color Scheme 2020

Color

And just like that, what has felt like the longest year (in my lifetime) has come to an end. For December’s color scheme I went for a classic combination of Christmas inspired colors. Neutrals paired with green and red. I hope you enjoy! On another note, I’ll be stopping the monthly color schemes for 2021. […]

November Color Scheme 2020

Color

I’m coming to the end of my second year doing these color schemes, and fitting them to the mood of the month is now far harder than before. So although this color scheme doesn’t fit November per-say, I hope you still enjoy the combination. It can be soft and romantic, or earthy and warm depending […]

August Color Scheme 2020

Color

For August 2020 I did a color scheme that may seem like a strange combination but one that works all the same. Greens and blues are analogous colors (next to each other on the color wheel). And in the warm summer months, such as August, you see the most greens and blues in nature. Lakes […]

March Color Scheme 2020

Color

March always makes me think GREEN. And for this color scheme I decided to create a monochromatic one. Monochromatic color schemes are ones that pull from the same vertical area on a color scheme. With green, I pulled the lighter and darker values around that area to come up with what you see below. I […]

January Color Scheme 2020

Color

Wow. The year 2020 is here. How many “futuristic” novels and movies had that date?! I decided to keep up with the monthly color schemes due to their popularity. So I’m ringing in the new year with a soft palette with both warm and cool tones. I also think it’d be a great Nursery color […]

December Color Scheme

Color

And just like that, it is time for December’s color scheme! This year has flown by, and I absolutely loved the challenge of creating a color scheme for each month. For December I was torn between going towards snowy blues, or vibrant green. But it isn’t Christmas without green & red, so keep scrolling to […]

November Color Scheme

Color

November is already here. It was just yesterday I was celebrating New Years…or at least it feels that way. With a new month comes a new color scheme. Full of the warmth of a fall harvest, shedding tree leaves, and roasted turkey. Keep scrolling to grab the color codes, Pantone values, and Benjamin Moore shades. […]

October Color Scheme

Color

Everyone always thinks of orange when October comes around. But to me, it’s all about those eerie shades of purple and green. Maybe my love for Scooby-doo as a child assisted in this color selection. Either way, enjoy this new month! WANTING THE COLORS? Haunted Forest HEX: #315350 Pantone: 2466 C Benjamin Moore: Hidden Falls […]
