Autumnal Gold

There was a time when I couldn't stomach fall colors. It was a reaction to having seen too much avocado green shag carpet and too many harvest gold kitchen appliances in the 1970s. I blasted into the eighties with a reactionary craving for jewel tones like everyone else.

So it came as a surprise when I found myself in the last few years loving green, brown, gold, rust, orange and wine. In defense, the current go-round of harvest hues are more saturated and clear, whereas the 1970's versions were from a dull and muted palette.

This post has some selections in beautiful gold for your viewing pleasure.
