13th May ’17: Red, gold & green

Happy Saturday, lovely people ❤️💛💚
When I returned to The Colour File HQ yesterday, I yearned to do a shelfscape. I’d bought some delicious vibrant tulips and it suddenly dawned on me that I haven’t yet slung a red, yellow and green one together (I’ve also been waiting to show you this @orlakiely candle: isn’t it gorgeous?). These colours together bring back teenage memories of buying dub reggae on vinyl and listening to it in awe and wonderment with friends, whilst thinking, in a teen angst way, that I just wasn’t quite cool enough. I played some Mad Professor recently and those awkward but pure, pioneering moments came flooding back. I’m probably still not cool enough but the great thing about being on the ‘wrong’ side of 40 is that, well, I don’t much care anymore. In the words of that eponymous poem, I might even start to wear purple soon. Oh, hang on…I already do. Maybe it’s finally time for the red hat that doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me. Anyway, have a great day, folks.

Martha, The Colour File x
