For a fabric designer the color palette is kin to the elusive unicorn. You may catch a glimpse of her but if you miss her you are dead in the water. On the other hand, you may catch her only to be speared by her weird horn thing. Basically, I’m saying it’s tough, you got that, right?
Anywhoo, for the sake of progress by transparency of process I introduce you to my current unicorn. This is by far the most complex palette to date. There are so many little details in Parisville, each with her own personality. It left me feeling obligated to honor each of them with their own color. Side note: I have heard rumors about people that have a lot of friends and have to remember all kinds of birthdays and attend lots of parties. I never leave my studio so I’m not sure if this is true but it could be, you know, somewhere “outside”. Crafting the Parisville color palette is what I think that might be like.
To give you a scale reference please note the following statistics:
Full Moon Forest: 13 Colors
Flutterby: 14 colors
Nest: 14 colors
Neptune: 10 colors
Hushabye: 13 colors
Plume: 11 colors
PARISVILLE: 35 COLORS! What?!? That’s crazy talk! No, it’s true!
