{colour inspiration: golden coral & morning sky}



. . . a softer, subtler, more romantic version of the classic combination of red and turquoise -- golden coral and morning sky -- and whether a bouquet of peonies at an afternoon dinner party or a delicate silk blouse against luxurious bed linens -- the intermingling of the two feels like a rush of spring air, billowing past curtains and fluttery skirts and bright petals in carved vases, ushering in long-awaited days of summer . . .

{p.s.} just happened upon another variation of this colour combination, here {via destined to design}

What a beautifully lyrical way to describe those colours - makes them even more appealing.
