colour palette : thrifted threads

emma lamb

Hip, hip hooray it's Friday!

Have you all had a great week!? I am so happy to be moving again and not feeling the need to take painkillers anymore, such a relief! There's definitely going to be a large glass of red wine with my name on it tonight, oh yeah! Anyhow, before that I've got this lovely 'thrifted threads' colour palette to share with you...

Earlier this week I was sorting through some old boxes and found this wee collection all bundled together, aren't they lovely? They had been wrapped up in some tissue and earmarked for an embroidery project a long time ago, I'm talking years as in back when I was designing children's wear! I know I've had these for at least ten years and I can still remember the day I found them and a whole bunch of others in a Cadbury's Roses tin (that lovely round one in the last picture from yesterday). It's not really the kind of thing you forget, is it!? It's like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Even then these threads were old, maybe another twenty or thirty years? Maybe more? Thing is, these colours look so fresh together and so very now! They could easily be the inspiration behind next season's fashion or home wares collections. Those almost neon tones of lime, pink and orange next to the cool blues and grey with just a hint of warm ochre and rich berry purple to make them feel autumnal. I love this balance of the cool and warm, very inspiring!

Wishing you all fabulous weekend!
Emma, x
