Colour rules our emotions and draw us in,
and the colours we choose to surround ourselves with say a lot about us…
The past few weeks have been all about updating. You’ve seen my new book covers, got the release dates in your diary, and now you can check out my new colour palette online!
Things change – that’s a fact of life. I’ve not always been great at embracing change, but this time is different. My books have got a publisher and a new look, and my website needed a change.
My favourite colour has always been green right from being a little girl, then it went through a teenage purple phase and back to green. I still love green, don’t get me wrong, but alongside green right now is a new favourite. A colour that’s crept into my wardrobe, flows throughout nature, and adorns the stormy sky.
I love the stormy shade of slate that the ocean rises with, the skies embrace, and it suits me too.
You’ll find the tone in bluebells, stone, water, sky, and gems. It has richness and sophistication that cools and calms, and also precipitates storm and passion.
My website looked lovely in warm olive greens, but it feels like it’s grown up a little with the enchanting tone of slate blue-grey.
It carries a hint of lilac, blue, and even the warmth of olive, but stands alone in a new clean and fresh take.
It’s dusk before the indigo night and a star-spilled sky, and it’s an emerging dawn full of hope and light.
It’s a hue that conveys emotion and imagination, and fits me well – and that’s all I could ask for.
What colours have you used online, and why?
What colours talk to you?
It’s good to change the look and feel of a blog or website now and then. Keeps things fresh. Looks nice!
Good luck with the re-release of your books!
A change is always good! Thanks, Kevin.
Looking good, Lisa!
The older I get the more drawn to the colour grey I become. And blue, which it grey’s brighter sister. It has never struck me as a cold colour – on the contrary, I find it soothing & like green, redolent with nature. Blue was my mother’s favourite – I’m turning into her! xXx
Greys are beautiful colours… I think I go for green to be enlivened and right within nature, and slate grey/blue for calm…
I get constantly ‘bogged down’ when it comes to colour choices: I am very much a primary colours person – apple reds and greens are an obsession. Given the need for subtlety I prefer the dawn sequence, the red and amber hues, and a china blue sky…
Dawn colours are gorgeous!
