Autumn colours Orange NSW GrantBuild

The colours are so rich at this time of the year. The skies so blue.

What a great time of the year to consider colour.

Colour for interiors.

Colour for exteriors.

At Grantbuild we work closely with clients to ensure they consider every time of the year when it comes to colour choice.

Autumn Orange NSW is a great time to see almost the full spectrum of colours.

Did you know this about Autumn Colours:

A green leaf is green because of the presence of a pigment known as chlorophyll, which is inside an organelle called a chloroplast. When they are abundant in the leaf’s cells, as they are during the growing season, the chlorophylls’ green colour dominates and masks out the colours of any other pigments that may be present in the leaf. Thus the leaves of summer are characteristically green.

Chlorophyll has a vital function: that of capturing solar rays and utilising the resulting energy in the manufacture of the plant’s food—simple sugars which are produced from water and carbon dioxide. These sugars are the basis of the plant’s nourishment—the sole source of the carbohydrates needed for growth and development. In their food-manufacturing process, the chlorophylls themselves break down and thus are being continually “used up”. During the growing season, however, the plant replenishes the chlorophyll so that the supply remains high and the leaves stay green.
