Monday Color: Russet

The leaves are changing colors rapidly, making me long to hit the open country road (in a Russet Brown MG Midget like the one above preferably!). Crisp Autumn air accompanies every nightfall. And the delights of Thanksgiving are just around the corner.

Fall, my favorite season, is most certainly in full swing!! And Russet, one of my favorite colors, is beginning to tinge everything around me, from holiday decor to the seasonal bounty at the Farmers Market to the Fall wardrobe staples I just unearthed in my closet. Feast your eyes on the many ways that Russet can warm up a whole room or just a table setting in my weekly color tribute below.

Images above:
