For this new article, I really wanted to present to you colorful harmonies from objects that I selected at the store. I find it a very enjoyable game to tell stories using objects that touch us!
Today I offer you 5 colorful journeys! Each time I started with a “favorite” creation that I naturally embellished with other objects placed around it. I must admit that very often, Sandrine Thommen's art prints were the centerpieces! When it wasn't an illustration by Sandrine, it was an assortment of 15cm x 15cm Japanese papers that I make all year round at the shop (and yes, more combinations of patterns and colors)!
For each colored harmony, I have listed the items presented in photos. If one of these products is not listed below, it is because it is not available on the e-shop but is in store. As for Sandrine's illustrations, we have a few copies available in store but you can also find them on her Etsy store !
THE RED AND PURPLE RANGE
The love of kimono , kokeshi and these large floral patterns instantly reminds me of Japan. It’s this imagination that I often had in my head before I could set foot there!
THE MUSTARD YELLOW AND ORANGE RANGE
I find that the warm tones of this assortment of Japanese papers combine wonderfully with Sandrine's work. The illustration of this little masked child is so cheerful! These autumnal colors give me the pleasant feeling of being on a walk in the forest and walking on a carpet of gingko leaves.
THE ACIDULATE YELLOW AND WATER GREEN RANGE
I always liked mixing tangy yellow and sea green. For me, it is a timeless, refreshing harmony, whatever the season! In this case, plants and florals are in order with the foliage motif pouch and the large sakura card.
THE NIGHT BLUE AND ORANGE RED RANGE
With its shades of blue and touches of orange-red, I particularly like this more “masculine” universe, especially with this little character and his kimono with graphic patterns.
TITLE - WHITE AND GOLD RANGE
This assortment of soft and elegant papers, in different tones of gold, reminds me of a winter garden under the snow.
I hope that these harmonies will make you want to imagine your own compositions based on your world and more broadly, that this article will have brought you joy and color!
I will see you very soon on the blog with new creative articles inspired by Japan.
What is your favorite color harmony among the five proposed in this article?
