"Hello, I am Torie and I am so happy to have been invited by the lovely Emma to share my colour story. Torie Jayne is my blog where I share my inspirations, crafts, gluten free baking, interior ideas and designs and everything else between. I think it would be fair to say I am known for pastel colours but what perhaps you don't know about me is that I am a little obsessive about colour. My Dad describes it as a medical problem and my partner describes it as military! Hmm, I think I need to explain a little further and give you some examples so you can make up your own mind.
Let's start with our bathroom where I have gone for a vintage modern style in a colour palette of white, silver sage and chrome, so far so good, but when it comes to my shower and bath toiletries I like them to be in keeping with the rest of the room so I ban any toiletries in there original packaging being on show. Therefore I dispense them into plastic bottles and label them with alpha beads, thank goodness my partners choice of shampoo and shower gel are fitting!
When it comes to our kitchen my obsession becomes a little clearer as everything out on display is in shades of duck egg blue, with a smattering of pink, stone and blue. Which means that I insist on buying a particular brand of washing up liquid and sponges and therefore you can imagine my delight when I found dishcloths in duck egg blue on a trip to Copenhagen! Take a look inside my kitchen baking cupboard and my love of colour becomes clearer or scarier? But hey, it makes me smile!
Then there is my laundry room with a housekeepers box that is full of pretty pastel cleaning products and utensils, dispensed fabric conditioner into handmade printed bottles and baskets of cloths, dusters, sponges and tea towels all in pretty pastels... of course!
When I first talked to Torie about sharing her colour story we giggled about her colour obsession, but after reading her story and seeing her beautiful pictures I don't see it as an obsession at all. This is a girl who know what she likes and what she likes makes her very happy. So why should she ever consider compromising her happiness!?
