colour palette : Housekeeping

This week I saw a great film for the very first time - Housekeeping. Have you seen it? Or read the book?
The film was released in 1987 but a wonderfully quirky story set in 1950's America...

"...two young sisters whose mother has abandoned them wind up living with their Aunt Sylvie, whose views of the world and its conventions don't quite live up the most people's expectations."

Apart from loving the human interactions of the three main characters, particularly how Ruth and Lucille react to their Aunt Sylvie's eccentricities... I was also completely smitten with their wardrobes (I've never had such envy of glittering cardigans in my life!) and oh, the sets of Sylvie's home!

The layers of pretty patterned wallpaper, lace curtains, velvet chairs and colonial styling almost completely hidden under Sylvie's hoarded collection of newspapers and gold and silver twinkling tin cans. The colours have stuck in my mind all week too, hence today's colour palette - teal, taupe, lilac, gold, olive, violet, grey, coral, beige and silver. So pretty and nostalgic.

I love new discoveries, especially when they leave such a lasting mark and are triggering all kinds of inspiration and ideas!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
Emma, x
