Hello there lovely Buttoneers! Look at what I have for you today! Button Colour Adventure – Part 4 – Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn…Can you believe that it has been over a year since my last Button Colour Adventure? Blimey! I know that time flies and all but I really didn’t think it had been that long!
Even though we are only on Part 4 of this adventure, I really love them. I love hunting down different colour palettes that I have discovered out in the ‘wild’ and bringing them back to share with you. If you have followed this little corner of the blogosphere for a while now you may have noticed that I am a huge colour lover and try to capture beautiful colour combinations and contrasts whenever I can in my art or crafts or even in my home or my Instagram feed!
I find colour super inspiring and this adventure did not disappoint.
I was out and about, partaking in a little retail therapy a week or so ago and found that I was captivated by some of the colours that were popping out at me as I strolled around the city of Worcester, here in the UK. I noticed that there was a real blend of the remnants of summer shades and the warmer autumnal tones were starting to creep in.
It is no secret that I love, love, love autumn, so I was super happy to start spying those warm auburns and rich browns alongside the pops of sunny yellows and seaside blues!
What a great mix!
So, as I was wandering around (and getting a hair braid! – See my Around Here…August 2016 post) I just had to whip out the camera every so often and document some of my favourites. Which was when I remembered my long lost favourite posts, the Button Colour Adventures! Hooray! So without further ado, here’s to saying goodbye to our beloved summer but a big, warm hello to autumn…
I’m definitely starting off with the bright, bold colours of summer – I mean how can you not imagine yourself riding that brilliant bright yellow bicycle through the lavender fields in Provence!?
I imagine the wind in my hair and the soft floral scent of calm every time I pass the L’Occitane shop *Swoon*
They are definitely full-on happy colours with a dash of soothing lavender for good measure and to keep the balance.
I have also decided that I don’t need to be all adulty and have matching towels in my bathroom or en-suite – Future me will have rainbow towels in these vibrant summer colours and feel happy every time I see them!
I actually believe that this beautiful shop display in Cornucopia, Worcester should be my kitchen dresser. I am pretty sure those floral mugs and delicately painted flowers were made specifically with me in mind – no? I am not sure there is any colour in this photograph that I don’t like. I love the bluey-grey of that little clock on the wall and the pretty mix of pinks and purples in different shades that flit amongst the pastels and crisp whites to really pop with colour – heavenly right?
I am a bit obsessed with teal shades at the moment too so that little sneak of teal in the colour palette really makes my heart swoon with inspiration and possibilities for crafty projects!
To be honest the whole shop was swoon-worthy. I couldn’t take my eyes of the dusky pastel blues and greys of this display, again with a splash of pretty pink – you can never go wrong with a splash of pink! The mint green and sea foam coloured accents were a really lovely touch bringing the other colours together nicely.
Can I just live in this shop? It would just all feel so calm and elegant surrounded by those soft, colours…
