I was really torn with this colour post! Usually I pick a collection of either fashion or homes pieces but I absolutely LOVE yellow!! I have found it so difficult to choose, so as a result, this Pantone Colour Post will showcase both.
The 8th colour in the Pantone Spring palette for 2015 is ‘Custard’ — a bright, sunny yellow shade. In my mind it’s the perfect colour for spring and summer, as it’s so lovely and cheerful.
It’s funny – it was not on my top list of colours a few years ago but as I get older I can’t seem to get enough of it! You may have noticed from my blog that I’m a little bit partial to yellow, so most likely I’ll be wearing it all year round! The Twinkles’ naming day had a lovely fresh yellow theme and we have lots of yellow accents around our home; our snug and sitting room both have lots of yellow cushions, in various patterns. Plus I have quite a
lot bit of yellow in my wardrobe too; my favourite bag for one!
I’m so glad I decided against doing a home or a fashion story and went with both. It’s given me the chance to pick all of my current faves in this lovely shade.
