Colour Crush

New year, new blog post. I spent the day updating the website, although it might not look too different to you, its much sleeker and more concise. One of my new years resolutions (and there are a few) was to spend more time on the website and post more creative blogs. 

First up- Colour crush, Ochre, or mustard

As with all colours, ochre derives from a natural earth pigment containing hydrated iron oxide, the main ingredient in Ochre is Limonite. Ochre as a natural pigment can vary from a mustard yellow to a deep orange, depending on the amount of Limonite it contains.  

Ochre is a colour that I find myself drawn to, its warm sumptuousness is on trend and complements deep blues and greys. I've chosen some items in the gallery that pick out the ochre trend and would really add a touch of spring to your living room.

These four cushions are a brilliant inexpensive way of adding a zing to your living room. Paired with the soft blues of Imogen Heath's printed cushion, they make a statement to your sofa.

To add a touch of colour to your walls to tie in with the hints throughout the room these two small paintings look lovely together and hung together in the step formation would subtly pick out the ocher soft furnishings above.

Ochre is also one of my favourite things to wear. This Taisir Gibreel Scarf paired with Amanda Ray's raku fired earrings look great with a blue dress. I love wearing Ochre and am currently wearing my favourite Holly Crow Knitted jumper, and I just adore my Seasalt Ochre raincoat... 

Ochre is such a deep, vibrant, happy colour, and looks fab juxtaposed with blues and greys which are so on trend at the moment. Why not add a pop of colour to your life! 

Over and out, Laura xx
