Scent / Lavender

Prospect Refuge Studio

We once had a client describe Lavender as nature's gray. She has disregarded the somber skies on an overcast day for the Lavender herb. A color that is so subtle and quiet that it goes with so many other colors. Try it—Take a piece of lavender fabric and place it next to others. It plays nice. Once the studio started thinking about it, we saw it everywhere. At the edge of a prairie field the other day there was a smattering of pale purple just touching the line between the sky and earth. The following day in traffic, shades of lavender were breaking through the asphalt lanes as far as the eye could see and looked so good even next the most humble of foliage—Nature's gray.
