Saffron Inspired

Sometimes a colour stays with me for days. Saffron is one of them. What a fabulous colour ..... pairs beautifully with shades of browns and dark greys. This week is dedicated to Saffron thanks to a Client who saw the colour in  previous blog. It's not everywhere which makes it even more desirable.

Getting inspired to decorate can be easy with so much stimulus at hand. Do you trawl the internet for images? love Pinterest?  indulge in Polyvore? search FaceBook? scrawl Instagram? 

Living between coast and country sometimes just looking at nature can be enough to set me on my way to a new creative project such as painting a wall, sanding back a table or painting that old stool bright yellow or hot pink or .... what about diagonal stripes across the chimney!

Treasures in a Gelato Shop ...

Tucked away in the rear rooms of Il Locale Gelato in Berry is a boutique of handmade funky clothes, polymer clay jewellery and screen printed cushions. The designs are unique, the combination interesting and the people are lovely.
