Bella Parade '13 : Post # 14

Hiya all!
Sorry I'm late! I slept in!
And I had not kept this post scheduled! LOL!

So yup, you all are right yesterday's color was Frost!!!
What a lovely blue hued neutral will it make!!!

And here's today's color (puzzle as somebody says ;) Lisa!)

And here are your hints!
1. The name is derived from the Greek γέρανος, géranos, or γερανός, geranós, crane. The English name "cranesbill" derives from the appearance of the fruit capsule of some of the species
2. There is a place by this name in South Australia and  a township in Valley County, Nebraska!
3. _ E _ _ _ I U _

To make a monochromatic scheme, I used it with Pink and Country Red

For the complementary scheme, I paired it with Capri

What a wonderful pair they make!

For the creative combo, I paired it with Purple and Lavender to make a powerful scheme.

Now here are the prints I'd use it with...

  2. Shruti, Though I joined late, I am loving this word game/name. Thanks for the parade.

    Today's color is GERANIUM.

  3. geranium! Not a flower I like too much, but the color is pretty! I'm not sure I have ever seen a geranium in that color! If I had, maybe I'd like the flower better!

  4. Huh, I've driven along that highway dozens of times of times and never noticed that town! Well, "community" is probably more accurate with only 240 people! Anyway, GERANIUM.

  5. The colour of the day is GERANIUM

    I would pair it with A is MY KT

  6. Colour is Geranium.
    I have driven through the South Australian town a number of times and it is in a lovely part of our country.
    Thanks again for showing what works with this colour.


  8. I spy some Geranium in the Lizzy House Jewels fabric on this pouch

  9. Geranium! I have geraniums in my garden. They are the perfect red color! Good pick for a color today and awesome fabrics you picked out to coordinate with.

  10. Geranium! It is a beautiful colour! I will have to keep this one in mind.

  11. Geranium is today's color. I like it with Summerhome.

  12. Based on your clues, I think that this color is Geranium, but somehow the color itself doesn't really remind me of a geranium flower. Hmmm...

  13. Geranium would be my guess.

  14. Geranium!
