Winter I go with dark colors of black, brown, rust. red's. and landscape fabrics with Winter and snow landscapes.

    The colors that remind me of Spring are light green, baby pink, baby yellow, light purples and pinks. Prints that remind me of Spring are flowers, birds, and butterflies. The colors bright yellow, yellow red, hot pink, strong blues, yellows and reds reminds me of Summer. Roses, sunflowers, and seagulls also remind me of Summer. When I think of Autumn it reminds me of the colors, creamy orange, different shades of browns and dark blues, reddish orange, golden brown and deep green. Leaves, insects, and fall flowers are prints that reminds me of Autumn. When I think of Winter, it reminds me of the colors of light blue, dark purple, dark blue, dark murky green colors, and black.

    Spring = pink flowers, birds, light greens
    Summer = blues, reds, more primary colors, water, beach balls
    Fall - deep oranges, deep reds, deep greens, deep blues, fall leaves, scarecrows
    Winter = whites, blue, purples, or red/green and Christmas prints.

    Is kinda what you're looking for as an answer?

    Look at picture of any given season and that gives me ideas...it depends where you live what seasons look like...here in CA - I don't see snow in the winter, but I see black, grey, dull greens and clear blue sky. I also see sandy beaches and blues and greys and....just let your imagination go.
