Happy Easter!

Easter 2013 I've chosen a contemporary, monochrome colour palette of grey, black, and white with natural elements of warm woods, fresh green foliage and patterned plumage. Strong graphic patterns add a modern touch to the traditional Easter egg. Here are a few of my favourite finds.

Spring Clean for Easter!

A crisp, sunny start to March signals the arrival of Spring so time to clear away those Winter warmers and freshen up for Easter! A clean colour palette of gentle chalk tones add a light touch to the home. A tender colour palette of Duck Egg Blue, Leaf, Zinc, Hen's egg, Twig and Blossom refresh and renew.
