A pretty bedroom (sage and gorse again)

I still can’t get enough of this colour combo so this delicate bedroom scheme immediately caught my eye. There’s more of this vintage-inspired home at The Design Files.

Fresh new colour combination: sage and gorse

1 May

How’s this for a lovely new colour combination? Softest sage with an unexpected splash of gorse yellow in the fireplace.

I’ve blogged loads in the past about my love of yellow and grey, but I feel like I’ve been getting a little sick of that combo recently and this seems a much more sophisticated, grown-up twist. Prettier somehow.

Also, I’ve looked everywhere for the source of this image to no avail – if you know whose home this is please let me know via the comments or email. I would love to make sure the owner of this home is credited for their fabulous eye for colour!

The prettiest colour combo in the world ever… the sequel

Cavegirls can go gooey over pretty colours too, right?

I can’t get enough of sugarcoated mint and blush at the moment… wear it, cook it, decorate with it. This is what spring looks like to me this year!

Don’t worry, I’m not going all ‘fashion blog’ on you. Believe me, if you saw what I was wearing today you’d realise I wouldn’t even try!

However, I can’t get the loveliness of this picture out of my mind, so I’m posting it here because this is my blog and that means I can…

You could use the colours as a room scheme if you felt like it. You might want to hunt out the skirt. You might covet those bentwood chairs. Maybe you’re after a vintage bike.

Do with it what you will, I’m just putting it out there because you’re girls of fine taste and you might just love it too.

Some days, that feels like enough.

The Paris Colour Project

16 Aug

The web is packed to bursting with beautiful blogs, but it’s a rare thing to come across one as breathtaking as this.

Little Brown Pen is home to the Paris Colour Project, a visual diary of photographs taken by Nichole and painstakingly organised into subtle colour groups.

Lovely, non? A selection of the photos are going to be published in book form in the spring, but in the meantime you can see more here and at Nichole’s Etsy shop.
