Color Theory: Autumn

As a graphic designer, color theory plays a huge role in my designing process. Knowing which hues work together is something that's really important and can make or break your design. Lately I've been finding a lot of inspiration in color, so I made a COLOR THEORY board on Pinterest to keep track of my favorite combinations. I'm especially loving the palettes created on Design Seeds and 100 Layer Cake because they include the beautiful photographs that inspired their palettes.  

Today I tried my hand at creating my own color boards using a few of my instagram photos as my source of inspiration. I decided to use autumn themed photos because, to be honest, I don't think I'm going to get away with posting about autumn for very much longer! But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and though the leaves are falling, winter isn't here yet! So without further adieu, here are my autumn color boards...
