inspired by colour!


I've been thinking about colour a lot recently, spring makes me want to throw out all my black and start over (a terrible idea - I'd have nothing left!). Colourlovers is a great website for finding interesting colour combinations, whether wardrobe planning, decorating a room or even making over your website - something I really want to do when I get the time. Stupid thesis!

Right now I'm loving bright tartans (must be a little punk in me somewhere!), preppy argyle and mixing grey with pretty sunny colours:

I'm also enjoying discovering the Pantone brand, and it's fashion colour report for spring '09 available here. I love the yellow and lush greens they include, although I'm less of a lavender girl.

If you enjoy design and all things colourful they also have an online magazine and their colourstrology widget is worth a look too.
