Colour Inspiration; Tangerine and Jade

11 May

I love, love, love colour!

Most of my clothes are in violent hues of yellow, blue, purple, pink with splashes of white.

Like a bower bird, I am drawn to bright and shiny things.

This week I have not been able to get the colour combination of  Tangerine and Jade out of my head.

I love the contrast of these colours, the vibrant, look at me of the tangerine and the exotic glamour of jade.

Last week I posted about the Polka dot crochet motif. When I eventually get around to making a blanket from this motif I want to use a tangerine and jade palette and compliment these vibrant colours with lighter versions of themselves, maybe a beautiful apricot and a minty green


Teaming these colours with a crisp white would make the colourful polka dots pop but I am also toying with the idea of using a very pale grey as my background colour, for a more elegant feel.

Now, let the great tangerine and jade yarn hunt begin!
