So, last week I updated you about the colors of the ginghams,
and what was happening with them.
And, I said I would try to get the new colors listed by the end of the week..,
well, that did not happen.
But, I finally got the pictures done, and edited, and they are up!
While I am sorry some of the old classics are no longer going to be available, I think that the new colors are good. These do not take the place of the old colors. For instance, there is nothing to replace the brown tones or some of the golden tones, like wheat, which was a staple color.
All of these have white for the light color. While that seems like a no brainer, the old colors had a lighter color that played off of the darker color. For instance, the khaki color had a light color of cream. How white the white looks with these depends a lot on the value of the darker color. The indigo blue, for instance has a high contrast between the two colors, while the color fog has a low contrast.
The other thing that is different is the colored threads are more tonal on these checks, than the older checks, giving a slightly striated look to some of these.
So… here are the new colors!
The indigo blue should become a classic.
It is very dark, and in some lights appears black.
The cornflower blue is not what I think of as cornflower,
by any means, but there it is.
It is a pretty blue, that in some lights has a periwinkle undertone.
The aqua is not to my eye aqua at all,
but more of a muted teal blue green.
And the last blueish tone is seaglass-
which is a muted grey blue tone.
Think spa- because a few years ago
that is what the color would have been called.
After years of asking for a grey they did one!
This is a deep tone, which in some lights looks hickory.
The one named fog is a beige neutral that is very close to the color khaki.
The only real difference is khaki has cream for the lighter color, not white.
While khaki is still running,seeing this,
I wonder for how long it will be,
as the move to all white for the light color is a move to stream line production.
There are two additional colors.
One called Tuscan red,which is a terracotta color.
And there is a green, called Spring.
.It is a pine green, with deep olive tones.
So, there you have it!
Some fresh colors for your decorating schemes!
The old colors that they are keeping
( at least for the moment )
If you need any of the other old colors=
China Blue, Espresso, Strawberry, Sagegrass,
or any of the pastels
GET THEM NOW.
For when they are gone, that is it.
There won’t be any more.
