Today's color board is inspired by scenes from the southwest--dreamweavers, cactus-filled deserts, Navajo legends. To me, the softness of the tints of coral, mint and gold is instantly calming.

Fun fact:  Did you know a color is only referred to as a "tint" if it is a hue from the color wheel that has been lightened by the color white? Umm--news to me. I thought this website did a great job of explaining the differences between a hue, tint, tone and shade. Cheers to learning something new everyday! I am a fount of questionably useless material. :)
