Colour Love

Need some inspiration to do something a little more productive than sit on a verandah with a cup of tea and a piece of mum’s christmas cake for elevenses while admiring the view of the garden and enjoying the absence of traffic, noise and deadline panic? Look no further, if you love colour and would just die for this colour chart, then this site will have you bounding into a colour-based project quicker than it’ll take the kettle to boil for another cuppa!

I’ve just discovered Farrow and Ball. And I’m already dreaming up excuses to visit paint shops just for a colour fix.
It’s also the push I need to finish the mess created when we thought moving the furniture in my workroom was a good idea. You know when you over-work the colours on your palette they go all grey and murky – that’s my workroom right now, overworked and a complete disaster. Must fix that. Must write a plan to fix it. Must put the kettle on for a cuppa to enjoy while making that plan!

Frankie and Ray - Gorgeous. You know I love a bit of colour. Oh, and never mind the mess in your workroom. Plenty of time to deal with that….ah, Summer. Another cuppa? More cake? Yes please! Jo x

Lark - Hi Michelle, I’m a huge fan of Farrow and Ball, we painted our last house in England completely in their paints and they are the best!! They are hard to get in Australia but I have had good results by taking my F&B colour samples to the Haymes pint centre for matching (the things we do!!!). There is a great book about colour by F&B too. Hope you’re having a nice week! xx
