A Cheerful Palette to Fall To

Fall makes me think of orange and all of the colours I can pair it with. While searching for orange and purple, an unconventional colour combination, I found orange and periwinkle. Periwinkle, a blue lavender, is a calming counterpoint to the boldness of orange and the mix is cheerful and sophisticated. Add a bit of lime and you have a very pleasing palette.
