Color inspiration from Farrow &Ball


Just some inspiration today for you… my twitter followers know that a throat infection is bothering me for the last few days and I'm not up to preparing big posts at the moment… but I hope you enjoy these images I found a little while back… the new colors for 2011 from Farrow&Ball, yes I know we are almost half way through 2011, but still I like sharing these colors with you and am wondering if you were to use them in your own home too?

    Very nice, very soft. The feeling of a calm summer house…
    I would definitely use them, but maybe mixed with some bright colours to get a little “friction”. Will you use them in your new home?

    Beautifull pictures, I love that pink bed…. I Think my daughter would be very happy if I painted hers that color!

    The colors by Farrow and Ball are amazing; they change during the day according to the light and they are never boring. And I love the matt effect. I am planning to paint our bedroom in Parma Gray and my husband’s study in Calamine. We tried Oxford stone, but it did not turn out well in our home.
    Get well soon!

    We painted our entire new home in Farrow & Ball, and it was totally worth it!

    Love these colours! Especially the pink bed and that gorgeous blue jug. Lots of the colours in my home are Farrow and Ball, but from a while ago. x

    They’re beautiful, I;m really into the muted, almost dirty pastels that seem to be popping up everywhere this spring. I particularly like the coral pink and green xxx

Let’s chat with embroidery artist Celeste Johnston about how she turned her passion into a professional career and the interesting path that led her to it.

The Bamburgh Cardigan

Head to the North East of England until your reach the land of ancient castles, historic churches and rugged moorlands, and you will arrive in fibre artist Joanne Storie's homeland. This iconic landscape (think Hogwarts) is where she creates her signature BareFaced Yarns - a perfect mix of sheep wool and baby Alpaca - that strongly reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

Crack a smile

“Darling, crack a smile”... How often have you had that said to you while you were minding your own business? Photographer Mia Mala McDonald and needlwork artist Catherine Tipping had enough of this approach. So they created the joint exhibition Why Doesn’t She Crack A Smile?
