When Life Gives You Persimmons…

nov seas insp 1

Pumpkins and Autumn leaves may signal the changing of the seasons for most people, but for me nothing says Fall like a bowlful of persimmons!  Their beautiful reddish orange glow with contrasting sage green leaves provides such a welcome dash of color when the sky is overcast, as it is so often this time of year.

Inspired by the rich color, I decided to quickly pull some samples from our library and see if I could replicate the feel using sustainable materials.  I thought I would share the results…

Clockwise from the top: Q Collection Satin Wool in Paprika, Tree Frog Veneer in Green Willow Crown, Lulan Sun Series Silk in Sunkissed Orange, Lumicor Celery Taipei, Lumicor Manderin Iridescent, Q Collection Dandy #1005 in Olive, Daltile Wausau Terrazo Tile in Driftwood, Hakatai Ashland-E Series Sterling Blend

So what did I learn from this little exercise?  Well, first off, it was fun and I think I will try to make this a regular series.  Second, there is an amazing array of color to be had in the world of sustainable interiors, if you just know where to look.  Lastly,… I am finally going to have to break down and buy a better close-up camera!  These images really don’t do justice to how lovely the materials are, not to mention those inspiring persimmons.
