colour palette : rose gold

colour palette : rose gold, curated by Emma Lamb / photograph © emma lamb

I've had a bunch of these dried yellow roses hanging in my studio for months now, they were a wee gift from my Man when he came home from work one day. They were really pretty buds when he gave them to me, but within a day or so they began to droop and dry out. I'm the kind of girl that like to see a bunch of flowers fade and die. I am always fascinated with the way the petals and leaves twist and contort into new shapes; the way the colours change and become more muted while also taking on more depth; and the way they take on a whole new sense of fragility as they become brittle.

But it wasn't until the start of the autumn that I really noticed the colour in these delicate blooms... the papery shades of gold, mustard and burnt orange. I love them against these muted greys and greens along with that gorgeous pop of bright pink (from one of my Cath Kidston bags). I think they make for a very pretty autumn palette, don't you?

Happy Saturday and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend,
Emma, x
