There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.Elizabeth Bennett (Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice)
Emma is all pastels, light colors, incredibly soft, without anything dark to mar it. And very very fluffy.
Pride and Prejudice is jewel tones, dark greens and purples with perhaps a sudden dash of bright color to add interest.
Persuasion is dark colors (especially reds), that have faded well with age with just a hint of a rosy hue on the edges.
Mansfield Park is simple, drab colors, off-whites and washed out colors.
Sense and Sensibility is half bright colors, pinks and purples and yellows, and half serviceable colors, deeper blues and greens. The two halves battle it out and the blues and greens win in the end.
Northanger Abbey is a simple yellow with fantastic black accents that don’t quite seem to fit.
