Hues of Autumn

I love the fall—especially the brilliant colors you find in the landscapes this time of year. So it was my honor and pleasure to design the October cover for AAF-Cleveland Portfolio. Since I'm also a color marketer, my inspiration for the cover came from the current colors found in the home and fashion industries. The foliage definitely takes on a different look with those colors!

Perfect fall hues in these pillows by Crate and Barrel.

Beautiful colors, beautiful bedding by Exclusively Home.

I love the muted grey and brown tones of these products —classic colors for an economically challenged time.


  1. Congrats on illustrating such a beautiful color for the AAF cover! You are so talented with your use of color. Love the colors on the Crate and Barrel pillows and what a unique design.
    Crate and Barrel should consult with you for their color selections.
    Now that would be a fun job....get paid to pick colors.

  2. What a great post! I love the colors and the pictures! And the cover looks awesome—great concept!
