Peach and yellow M&S shelfie

Today has been a perfect day for creating shelfies.

When I opened the blinds this morning and the spring sun blasted in like a searchlight, I knew instantly that it was time to get creative.

I’ve been wanting to show you this sorbet-coloured trio from @marksandspencerhomepr for a little while but only today did everything conspire to make it happen.

Perfect light, time to paint the shelf (@littlegreenepaintcompany Orange Aurora plus Yellow Pink on the top, if you look closely enough, against a Spiced Honey @duluxuk background) and some ranunculus to bring out the colours and make them sing.

I love this trio, these strident siblings who have characteristics of each other that speak of their shared provenance and yet are defiantly individual and independent (‘No, I’m not like you! I’m like ME!!!’)

As such, one works perfectly on its own but together they’re the classic family gathering. Hope you enjoy their pleasing same-differentness as much as I do.
