Bella Parade '13 : Post # 11

Yup, you're right. Yesterday's color was Espresso!

Now here's today's color

And here are your hints :
1. I'm an evergreen coniferous tree!
2. When you go to the police to register a complaint, the police file me.
3. _ I _

Now onto the color schemes that I can use this in...

First up is the monochromatic scheme
Combined with Clover and Grass it looks awesome!

To make a complementary scheme, I'll pair it with Shocking Pink

I got my creative juices flowing to get this earthy combo... 

With Deep Burgundy and Tan

Moving on to prints now...

After selecting all, I must say I'm really gravitating towards the earthy combinations more!!!

  1. Based on the first clue, it must be FIR but that second clue leaves me totally stumped. It must be something unCanadian.

  2. How about some carved wooden fir trees? ...

  3. My husband likes his green shirts. This one looks fir-ish ...

  4. My Mom, too, likes to wear green. Especially a fir-ish green. Here she is with her grandson on Senior's Day ...

  5. It's not a colour I wear much of but apparently I do sometimes. Here's me in fir with my son at his University awards dinner ...

  6. Taylor wearing bridal shower fir ...

  7. This table runner I made fits the fir bill, I think ...

  8. This turtle in Uruguay. Definitely fir-coloured ...

  9. Fir colours in this fish in Uruguay ...

  10. This canvas bag I bought at the New York public library has fir tones to it ...

  11. I made these felted acorns. One is fir coloured ...

  12. My dress has some fir tones in it ...

  13. My son with our Christmas fir tree and our fir-coloured living room walls ...

  14. This beautiful vintage fir-coloured fabric was among my grandmother's scraps. It turns out it's quite significant and pieces have been sent to the American Textile Museum ...

  15. Some fir colour in the rug I bought for our living room ...

  16. My daughter's jacket is fir-coloured ...

  17. Some fir-coloured sage in a small bouquet ...

  18. Fir!
    I don't under the police complaint clue. What is a fir?

  19. Today's color is Fir. It would be nice with Camp-A-Lot for a boyish quilt.



  22. It's the Fir! I love the color :)

  23. I looked everywhere and could not find a kona color with 3 letters, but the only thing I can think of is FIR
