{colour inspiration: moody & atmospheric}



. . . have always dreamed of spring in shades of sunny whites and whispered greens, but recently the skies have been dark at turns and golden at others and during the cloudy moments, imagine spring as dusk and deep violet -- moody and atmospheric -- the colour of thundershowers . . .

I've been loving all shades of purple lately!! Though purple has been dominating fashion for a couple of years now, I feel like just now I am seeing in interiors more and more!

That first shot is really beautiful. It's amazing how the color of the wall and the flowers on the vase give a plain space such a boost.
