Hi guys!

Today I'm busy pondering a new colour theme for this wee blog. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love these vintage brights as they were inspired by one of my very favourite colour palette posts - 'retro fabulous'. It's just that sometimes I feel they can overwhelm some of the lovely images I blog, they can be a wee bit distracting at times. Of course that will be completely irrelevant to you if follow my post feed rather than dropping by this wee space personally! But I mooch around here daily and quite fancy a wee bit of a change, something a touch more muted and calm, but still with a vintage girly charm. Exactly the inspiration behind today's palette. I'm really loving the far left column with that lovely grey, deep rose pink and beige and the combination in the bottom row is very lovely too. Hmmm, I think a wee bit of Photoshop pottering is in order! I might stop by later to ask your opinion...

Wishing you all the most fabulous Friday,
Emma, x

edited to add - Okay, so I have pottered and played, tweaked and tweaked again and I think I'm happy with this softer palette of these grown up pastels. Just a wee bit vintage and a wee bit girly, but overall looking very calm and pretty. What do you think, do you like them?

  1. Hi Emma,

    Thank you for today's post ! I love the blossoms image ( top left ). I saw it and then looked up at your lovely crochet flower hanging above my computer, and was again reminded of our conversation at the selvedge fair.

    I understand a need for change on the colours. It is nice have a different feel and look. I am sure you will make great choice.
