It's good to occasionally cleanse the colour palette with beautiful white shades, wipe the slate clean as they say and find a fresh new perspective. But as we all know white is never just one shade or one colour, is it!? Something that paint manufacturers know all too well, which is great really as there is something so compulsive about collecting their wee swatch cards! I know you all know what I'm talking about! Which is why I was kinda excited about this colour palette generator, yeah I know I'm a bit slow on the uptake as it has been around for forever. But hey, better late than never right!?

I just love the names of all these colours, I can't decide if my favourite is 'black squeeze' or 'pearl bush'! What better way to waste an hour or so on a dreary Friday afternoon?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
Emma, x

  5. I didn't know about the colour palette generator. I love all those soft dreamy neutrals. I am trying to choose one for my bedroom, it has been white, and I mean white, straight from the can, no tint, for too long Fabulous mosaic too, and of course with Tiff's work at the centre.

  6. Ha ha, I have never seen the colour generator before either, so you are quicker than me! Great photos, especially love those birds.
