14 November 18: Playing with colour symbolism

🔴⚪️🔴⚪️🔴Apologies if I’m foisting the festive season upon you prematurely but last weekend lit the touch paper and got me in the mood. As a colour geek, one of my favourite things is playing with colour symbolism: taking traditional seasonal objects in non-traditional colours (I’m dreaming of a pastels Christmas) or, conversely, implying the festive season with traditional colours but using everyday objects. That’s what I did at my shelfie styling session @knebworthwinter last weekend, partly recreated here. I couldn’t resist chucking in a few baubles but I see those as all-year-rounders anyway. What colourway are you going to be following for Christmas this year? Or will it be a multicolour mash-up?
