Colors from Nature

June 20, 2011

I was preparing artichokes for grilling the other day, and I was taken aback when I sliced the raw artichokes in half.  I had no idea they were so beautiful inside!  I love artichokes, but have rarely prepared them myself (I think this was the second time), and I’ve never cut them open before boiling.

Don’t you think this would be a great color combination to decorate a room around?  I can see using the cream color for the walls, some furniture the shade of the green, purple throw pillows, and drapes and artwork with all three colors to tie it together.  Maybe it’s just because I have a green couch and I want to redecorate that room.  But this got me thinking about finding more unexpected color combinations in nature.
