Deriving Colour Schemes from Nature....

I am sure this post would be more interesting to non-designers as you can start training your eye in identifying some colour schemes from the nature. One of my personality traits has always been my plus point.....I Observe....Observe and simply Observe.....As soon as I am out of my house....I look at the pavements for anything new that has grown....I observe the sky for the lovely shades of blue and grey and on the bright day one can see the blue sky with patches of white clouds in it. Let me assure you that if you pick up such colour schemes from nature and directly use them in your decor, you need not be afraid of the outcome. In this post, I have borrowed a few pictures of nature from various professionals and used the same colour scheme in decorating some interior spaces. I am thankful to all the people for the lovely photographs.

That is the best way to understand more about colours.....how they are in nature and how they can be made use of while decorating. Try to keep your camera handy and picture everything that you like. In the next posts, I will discuss the colour Psychology in detail.
