Beautiful Color Palettes Picked at Real Simple

What's the easiest way to attract peoples attention? One word: COLOR. Stores use it to sell their merchandise through visual presentation - they usually pull together two colors in a section called a color block. Graphic artists use it to create signs or food packaging - usually using vibrant colors like a juicy red or vegetable fresh green. Magazines use it on their covers to draw you to their publication - especially in the summer time with the use of cool blues. The latest issue of Real Simple did just that - they attracted my attention with their gorgeous August issue cover.



What maintained my attention next was the content - mini makeovers for every room - and the easiest way to make over a room in one word is with COLOR. In their article, ONE WORD: COLOR, author and color expert Eve Ashcraft says (and it's oh so true) "Choosing color for your home is like choosing an outfit - it's a mix of passionate and practical. You ask yourself: What do I love and what makes sense?" Below are the four examples of paint palettes by Eve Ashcraft and styling done by Jeffrey W. Miller.
“You don’t listen to music one note at a time, and you don’t see colors one at a time,” Ashcraft explains. “It’s all about relationships, combinations, and context.” - Eve Ashcraft
