Mountain & Wood
Perhaps your summers are spent in the mountains and on hiking trails in nearby woods and their associated colors are your favorite for your summer scheme. From rock and stone covered with lichen and moss, to woodland ground with ferns and wildflowers, to grays and browns of tree trunks, to the many greens of coniferous and deciduous shrubs and trees – always a reminder of nature, these colors are restful and serene.
As you can see from the above photos, there is an incredible richness of colors in nature. Depending on where you live or where you are hiking at the moment, there is so much variety in rock alone – from various shades of gray to pink, orange, brown, black and even nearly white. The same is true for greens. We stock over 70 shades of various green wools alone – from palest pistachio and apple, to rich dark emeralds, olives, brownish greens, yellowish greens, bluish, greenish or grayish sage greens, dark to light.
