Color Wheel of Fortune 07.21.10

Today's feature color reminds me of that fiery red orange of molten lava as it pours out of a volcano, or perhaps the brilliant orange of leaves in the autumn sun, and even the exotic hues found in the wares of a foreign street market. There are just so many places you can find this vibrant color, but the items I've selected to share with you today inspired me with the visions I just mentioned!

This bold and dramatic Lava Lantern - a Hanging Stained Glass Candle Holder from wishartglass evokes an illusion of molten lava as it swirls and twirls in ever changing patterns. This would make a wonderful accent lamp over a cozy cafe table or to add some ambience to your conversation pit or bar area.

One of my favorite times of the year is autumn - my mom always says it's because I'm an autumn baby, but I think it's because Nature is in her glory, painting a palette of reds, and oranges and golds that would rival the work of any master artist! Randomcreative has captured that palette beautifully in her Vibrant Autumn Bracelet - just one of the stars of her "Leafy Series" showcasing her obsession with leaves and leaf beads. This is sure to make not only you, but everyone around you, feel wonderfully energized and full of life whenever you wear it!

I'm not sure when or where my penchant for hand fans started, but I've loved them almost as far back as I can remember. Maybe it's the allure of an exotic locale, or the romance of a bygone era, but fans just seem to add an aura of timelessness and mystery wherever they're seen. Gilbea offers some beautiful modernistic handpainted Silk Hand Fans like this brilliant piece. Perfect as an accessory to cool you off on a hot summer's day, or mounted on a wall as a dynamic piece of wall art, this fan can serve double duty and bring a wonderful warm glow into your world!

What a stunning collection of color! I feel more energized already and I hope you do too! We're going to keep that color index kicked up a notch for tomorrow's feature color - which is this sunshiney yellow! For a larger sampling of the color, I'll send you on over to my "Be Featured" button in the right sidebar - where you'll also find a list of all of the upcoming featured colors and themes. Please feel free to nominate as many pieces from your own shop or your list of favorites as you think might fit the theme(s)! Just click here to e-mail me the link and I'll check it out.

Have a bright and energetic day!

Karen: I love your color wheel features. The other day I needed the name of color, ecru, and I came to your blog FIRST and tracked back to a color chart on Google. Great idea and keep the great ideas coming. :) Laurie
