26 June 19: My multicoloured Etsy find

Yesterday, I talked about how Etsy is my go-to destination for superb colour finds.

Here’s one that I bought: a French colour chart which came from an old book. It’s on the wall in front of my sink so it’s there to look at when I (don’t) wash up. The blue is one of my favourite paints: Ultra Blue by @littlegreenepaintcompany which is not unlike @Sophierobinsoninteriors gorgeous hall colour, which she put on her feed yesterday.

In some ways ultra blue goes against the grain of what I would normally go for (pastels and sorbet colours with a blast of ink blue, burgundy or neon pink to give it some edge) but I’m captivated by its depth and richness.

It also provides a sublime backdrop to lighter colours like candy pink, sunshine yellow, tomato red and, like here, rainbow hues (PS apologies for the bike handles in the background 🚲🚲).
