Autumn in officially here and I am seriously loving it. Finally, the cool weather has arrived and small transformations can been seen in nature. Soon, there will be vibrant hues surrounding us as the trees slowly bare their souls and the hints of spring we cherish from fresh blooms hide away for the colder season. So many changes to experience.
Last year, my husband and I were on our honeymoon in Prince Edward Island and at this time a few days away from packing up and heading home. So many memories I will hold close to my heart. The one thing I felt made a huge difference in our visit was the month we chose to go. Autumn is truly an eye opening season and experiencing this magnificent place in such beautiful and crisp weather was awesome.
When I think of fall, I will always have thoughts of our trip to PIE, along with so many others we have taken during this wonderful time of year. The photo below was taken in Avonlea. A beautiful trail surrounded with various shades of green and hints of red and orange. It was truly lovely. I like to think autumn is a reminder of the adventures and hardships life can bring. Stripping down the layers and shedding pieces of yourself can truly be invigorating. When you dig deep and let go of any negative energy you may be carrying, your true colors will shine. And although the sun isn’t glowing as much as it used to, it’s warmth can be felt from those who truly open up to it.
Aphex Twin was a big part of my youth. As I got older his music played roles in special memories of mine, ones I would never forget. When certain sounds find their way into your life and act as a soundtrack, you know its good. This is just one of albums that I really connected with. Just the light, airy sounds and unique combination of ambient beats took me to another place. There surely is no other to compare to Aphex Twin.
The album artwork is grungy and distorted, with the color of rust the main character. The play with light really creates a beautiful array of tone and shadow, while it goes from cream to orange and then to brown. And with the texture these colors display behind it, you just wish you could feel its beauty.
This is a nice palette to take in consideration when using warm hues in your home or event. Orange has so many shades, from tangerine to the carrot color we all know, and you can find a lot of them here. The same with yellow and brown, which also incorporates the red family. A whole lot of warmth resonates from this album, both inside and out.
If you want to hear music that will not only relax you, but put you in a smooth groove, Run Return is a great choice. I discovered this group years ago and fell in love. I’ve put this album on when we have guests over as well as when I am working. It just really puts me at ease with its clever beats and peaceful sound.
The color palette of the album is high saturation beauty contrasted with dark hues. A nice mix of feminine and masculine. The textures throughout the design add a lot of interest and movement as well. Look to these colors for inspiration to design a children’s room or space as well as pops of color for a wedding.
