Purple hues

Purple hues with a touch of yellow makes for a vibrant and fun palette. Yes, it’s definitely not your normal calming palette but why not give it a try? I spotted this colour combo in my window box where we have a mix of violets and marigolds which look lovely together and then again in my choice of macaroons. Some bright cheerful imagery for a Friday morning is always a good idea, so enjoy and have a wonderful weekend lovelies!

    I was definitely a late bloomer when it came to purple, but these days I adore it!
    Not all colours purple though, I prefer the darker huskier richer ones – plum, cherry, aubergine, bluberries-n-milk..

    Hope you are well and that you have a fun weekend planned ahead.
