Purodeco autumn and christmas styling at Iittala 1

 

My choice of color is pure white and various red tones from the traditional red to pink, orange and copper brown. A choice made for capturing the seasonal colors from the autumn to the Christmas. The red tones are inspired by the beautiful autumn colors from the nature. According to Feng Shui, white symbolizes the metal energy belonging to the autumn. Plenty of lamps, candlesticks and lanterns to create a warm, relaxed atmosphere for both the dark autumn evenings and for the expectations before Christmas. A time to light candles and get together!

Yellow and vanilla

Yellow is sunshine! It’s a happy and cheerful color to use in interior design and decorating. It is a warm color, but like red, it has conflicting symbolism. On the one hand it denotes happiness and joy but on the other hand yellow is the color of cowardice and deceit.

 

color

 

There are many meanings for the color yellow, the most obvious ones being sunny, warm and radiant. We use yellow more than we know it, vanilla and cream is yellow, it is yellow tinted with white. Cream is an extremely popular color as it is warm but not overpowering, it is friendlier than stark white and we use it in every room and a lot outside the house too. Because of the high visibility of bright yellow, it is often used for hazard signs and some emergency vehicles.
