Collecting Colours - Mint, Peach and Yellow

You can probably tell what colours I've been collecting this week by the recent parrot pattern I designed. Peaches, oranges, mints and yellow are on my mind! These are the images I have gathered without even realising that I now have a preference for this pallet. I even went shopping today and bought a pretty mint and peach necklace pendant and some peach and orange shoes. I wonder what colours will find me next! And wish I could somehow invent a paint which changed colour with my mood... 'Mood Paint' - you heard it here first! 1.Beautiful interior by 101...

Upon making this commitment I realised that right now, I admire simple imagery with bold patterns and not a lot of different colours or detail.

Collecting Colours - Black, white and peachy pinks

If you are anything like me you collect colours. Like some kind of human-shaped bower bird, some days I come home from the shops and realise later that everything I have bought that day is the same colour. This week I emptied my bag of a nail polish, a greeting card and a new skirt that were all the same peachy shade of pink! I then noticed that all of the Pinterest pictures I had been pinning were also peachy, black and white. Next week I'm sure I will subconsciously switch to another pallet but this week's theme is very...
