foundation 1. The basis or groundwork of anything: the moral foundation of both society and religion. 2. The natural or prepared ground or base on which some structure rest. 3. The lowest division of a building, wall, or the like, usually of masonry and partly or wholly below the structure of the ground
For our second colour hunting expedition we explore foundation; a soft and muted palette of natural tones, a 10-colour-palette I designed for my first book ETC. Foundation is as its title suggests: a solid colour base for any interior. If you’re a gardener, consider it the fertile soil, sunshine and rain; if you’re a cook, think of it as the flour, eggs and sugar. With the right foundations, anything is possible: pirate black, cracked leather, paperbag, burlap, gypsy gold, felt, sailcloth, scrimshaw, chalk, glassine.
