Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. friends!
Spanish Tile seems like a fitting colorway to highlight on Thanksgiving. This Holiday always brings to mind deep oranges, rusts, cranberry and burgundy, highlighted with lighter pumpkin orange and gold. Warm, autumnal colors (even though most of the autumn color has already fallen from the trees).
When I imagined this Spanish Tile colorway, I envisioned a deep, warm color. I was working to create a deep, burnt orange with spicy undertones of chili, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie . I started with a base of the orange of a traditional, aged spanish tile floor, deepening it with a hint of warm brown, and then adding ocre, clay, chili, mocha and other warm tones. What resulted is a warm, dark orange with a beautiful and nuanced depth of color.
