Colour Files: Spring Palette

06.05.13

Hello! I hope that all of you are enjoying beautiful warm and sunny days like I have been here in the Netherlands. It is truly heavenly after such a long, grey winter. Over the weekend, the three of us hopped on our bikes and did some exploring, baring our white legs and feet for the first time in months.

Just before the weekend, I sent a second guest blog post to my friend Corinne at Emerald Green Interiors. She has just welcomed their second baby to the world and needed a hand keeping her blog going, so I stuck up my hand and offered to help. Corinne is a colour specialist living in Belgium {see her home here} and she blogs about colourful, inspirational interior design. For my second feature, I decided to send some spring/summer colour inspiration along to keep her readers happy while she’s taking some time off. The warmer weather  has had me swooning over fresh shades of yellow and salmon pink lately. When I came across the below images I just had to share. I always tend to decorate with neutral shades, I particularly loved how a sunny shade of yellow and a cheerful salmony shade of pink look against a neutral backdrop of white, beige and charcoal.

Soothing spring palette- charcoal mustard and salmon

Incorporating dashes of charcoal, mustard and salmon to a neutral space can make for a soothing spring palette. How do you add life to your home using colour? If you want to see more with this colour combination, head over to Emerald Green Interiors for the full post.

Wishing you a happy week, and see you back here soon for more pretty.

    A warm yellow, a dusky pink and light grey – it is a favorite colour combo of mine! I love the subtle, sensuous look of it!!
