colour-play: orange with a dash of white


let’s face it. i’m obsessed with colours. how ‘ bout you? colours on their own. certain colour combos. colours colours colours. hope you’ll enjoy this fun new series, featuring various colour combos, (and my obsessions wth them!)... i could never choose just one fave… so stay tuned for others! here’s the first: orange, with a dash of white

...................

oh orange…

how I love you!

and with a dash of white as accent… bliss!

I’ve had this new series written for a little while now, but when i noticed on etsy that today is happy Koninginnedag day (with such a great orangey front page earlier!) ...well…today’s the day!

gosh. i adore the colour orange.

it’s warmth and funness and clarity. and pair it with a little white? wow. so crisp and clean and .. wow!

we have a LOT of orange&white-ness in our home. we all just kinda love it.

and everything to do with rikrak? orange & white

and I love working with orange&white fabrics (sorry – you don’t get to see many in the shop – I keep them all, obsessively!)

so in honour… here’s some great spots to spot my addictive colour combo in action!
