If there’s one thing I love about autumn it’s the colours, and whilst researching the rusty, rich hues we usually associate with autumn, I came across these wonderful pink and orange brights that add a great twist to the season. There’s still lots of late summer flowers blooming and they add a perfect contrast against the burgundy’s, browns and mustards of autumn. It’s great to find another colour we wouldn’t normally associate with the season, it makes it more interesting.
I wanted to share a couple of colours that are inspiring me at the moment; Pink and Black. These colours have just come out of nowhere and I can’t get enough of them, you’ve probably seen me pin a few on Pinterest over the past few weeks. I love the two strong colours contrasting against each other, and I feel there may be a few designs with vivid pink and black popping up in the coming weeks!
What colour combinations have been inspiring you recently?
I’ve come over all dramatic in my Love Colour post today with my striking black and white mix. I really like how two colours can create such an array of shades with powerful effects. I’ve been collecting black and white photos on my Pinterest boards recently and these are just a few of my favourites.
If you love black and white too, make sure you follow my Black & White Pinterest board and please feel free to share your favourite images too!
I’ve been wanting to share these copper and blue colours for a while now, so I thought why not now? It will brighten up your Monday and hopefully ignite inspiration, like it did for me.
This colour combination post was sparked by the wonderful copper pot with the blue embroidery at the top. I’ve never thought of fusing these two colours together, but when I saw this photo, I knew I had to do a Love Colour post, especially as I have a huge copper crush at the moment!
Back in September I posted about Pantone’s colour trends for 2015. Then, in December, Pantone announced their Colour of the Year for 2015; Marsala. A beautiful red hue with a wonderful burgundy tone running through it, reminding me of Moroccan markets filled with scents of spices and incense.
It was only a few weeks previous that I’d posted about my love of the colour Burgundy – I must have known!
As you can see Marsala is a bold and delicious colour that also compliments the pale, icy pastel colours that Pantone have predicted for late 2015. Fuse the two colours together and you create a daring and unique colour palette for both home and fashion.

Burgundy is a beautiful rich, deep colour that has many tones to show off. It compliments well with different colours, so you can brighten it up with orange, white or gold, or tone it with deep purples and browns. Burgundy is the staple colour to any colour palette.
