Muted Colors and Textures

I know this is usually the time of year for brilliant oranges, yellows and reds, but for some reason I've been drawn to more muted colors for fall this year. Perhaps it has something to do with the extreme heat which I don't want to be reminded of by hot colors. There is a subtleness to each of the flowers in this arrangement that draws you in—the soft mauve of the hydrangea, the pale pink tips of the sedum blossoms, the hint of iridescence on the berzillia baubles, the green veins of the saracena lilies, the white on white of the astrantia and the wonderfully fluffy centers of the ranunculus (or is it ranunculi?) I'm sure I will return to color, but for now I am enjoying these softer colors and interesting textures of the season.
