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.
