Losing your mind to colour

Have you ever almost lost your mind over colour? This pic was one of the first I ever took for the Colour File in a store in Bordeaux. Before I realised that taking pics was a way of ‘having it all’, I’d genuinely struggle if I was faced with products in a range of colours […]

27th April ’17: Pink & red

Happy Thursday, peeps 🌹💕🌹 OK, so I managed to go two measly days without showing you another @Gucci SS17 outfit. What can I say? I’m utterly besotted with their vintage/boho thing. In my dreams I’m dressed in these outfits (well, I would be if I wasn’t busy flapping my arms like a bird or being […]

26th April ’17: In love with white

Good afternoon, Colour Filers. Now, grab yourself a seat. Ok, are you sat down? I have some shocking news. I’m in love with colour but I’m also in love with white. I know. I told you you’d be shocked. A cup of sugary tea, maybe? Actually, it was, strangely, these rows of white egg cups […]

26th April ’17: Crazy about stitching

Happy Wednesday, lovely people. Unless you’ve been living on another planet (and even then you may have clocked it) you can’t fail to have noticed the profusion of embroidery everywhere SS17.

If you’re feeling much the same, let me share with you a glimpse of my wonderful (and aptly entitled) […]

24th April ’17: Candy pink & navy

Happy Monday, people. I’m going to start the week with an apology. There’s been a paucity of shelfscapes from Colour File HQ because, quite frankly, I can’t actually reach the shelf right now on account of the builders beavering away and various items (including the kitchen bin and a rocking chair) being in the way. […]

18th April ’17: Muted rainbow

Happy Tuesday, folks ❤️🍊🌼🍀💎🌂🔮 If you’re battling to bagsy a seat on the bus to work after a long weekend, I feel your pain. To take the edge off it, here are some muted rainbow colours. They certainly give me that warm, fuzzy feeling and make things feel that little bit more bearable. The wallpaper […]
