Lisbon color palette
Revealing Urban Colors (via Brand Avenue: Local Color) is a small essay by Todd Falkowsky that explores the idea that cities have color schemes. Writer/photographer Robert Wright took the idea a little further and conceived his own color palette for the city of Lisboa.
One of the things I’ve always loved about Lisboa is its light… a beautiful shade of yellow with just a hint of orange. The Portuguese also have an affinity for pastel tones, painting even public buildings in what I would call Easter colors.
Doing a quick run through some of my Lisboa pix, I came up with the following color palette for that city. Included are terracotta rooftops, shades of stone from important monuments, the Tejo River, lots of blues from tilework panels & the retro brownish-red of my favorite cherry liqueur, ginjinha.
