|a marvellous quote from Bright Bazaar|
I've never been a beige person except in very small doses, I don't really know why but I've always been drawn to colour and as everyone who knows me will attest I'm a huge fan of red, it's probably the colour that represents me. Although after doing Shannon Fricke's brilliant Colour Workshop last weekend, I really need to rethink my use of red around the house!

I caught up for a coffee earlier this week with two super talented and stylish friends, Judy from Verandah House and Australia's answer to Martha Stewart Sharnel Dollar and we all agree - ditch the dowdy and embrace colour!

A few weeks before Christmas last year, I arrived home one day and on my door step was my very own Christmas wreath Sharnel had made for me as a surprise. I just burst out laughing because I used to say to her 'I want one of those' and ta-da there it was! image via My Life My Loves|
I'm not sure if colour was ever 'out of fashion' but it's definitely at the top of the design tree this Christmas. I love the little tag line of Bright Bazaar 'because beige is boring'. I don't think we all need to rush out and throw colour around like a mad man (maybe just a little bit) but add a dash here and there and your spirits will be uplifted guaranteed. Colour = Happiness.
