“Nature” is the most common answer artists and creatives give to the age-old question; “what inspires you?”. It’s undoubtedly the greatest source of inspiration with its ever-changing and endless source of life and boundless diversity. At the moment most of us can enjoy the greatest color symphonies nature provides, right outside our windows. During the fall months, we witness the changes as leaves and trees, and all things green turn into a blast of yellows, reds, and oranges. And as morbid as it might be, the death and decomposition happening only reminds of the constant change and circle of life.
In our series of Inspiration + Paper we look and search for various sources and topics that can act as an origin for your inspiration when working with design papers. When working with a simple yet protean medium such as paper, it can be easily forgotten, how much power it can behold. A single paper, or a collection, can imitate a feeling or a mood, it can signal values and thoughts, and can definitely have a direct impact on its viewer or holder, both consciously and subconsciously. This time we’re drawing inspiration from the imminent world around us, the fall season – and do our best to convey its glorious colors into matching paper collections.
Matching magnificent fall & fall foliage inspired photography with the most beautiful papers from Europapier’s Design Papers Collection
The eight photographs below with matching paper palettes are all inspired equally by the beautiful scenery we all can enjoy during these unique fall months when nature goes through its most magnificent and picturesque changes and the wide and varied Design Papers Collection.
Our aim is not only to match the colors of the photography with respective papers, but to capture the mood, atmosphere, and feel. To find the perfect paper with an orange-toned hue and a soft uncoated finish that reminds of a misty morning forest, or the perfect juxtaposition elegant GLAM papers create when matched with the wet fallen leaves that cover the ground with their shiny, glimmery finish.
