Here's a sight that's become familiar for Apple events of late: colors.

Apple is decorating the windows of the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco ahead of a special media event it has planned for next Tuesday. The design, first revealed in images sent to blog site MacRumors, is a deluge of autumn leaves amidst a single Apple logo. It matches the pattern on invitations the company sent out to media outlets this week.

The October 22 event is expected to bring a variety of announcements, including new models of the iPad and iPad Mini, updates on Macs, and a price and release date for OS X Mavericks.

The facade of Apple's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters was similarly as bright last month when the company invited press and guests in to announce its two new iPhones, the 5S and the 5C -- the latter of which comes in a slew of colors.

Be sure to catch CNET's coverage of next week's event. More details on that can be found by clicking the banner below.
