Falling back into place

I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. No excuses except that spring, summer and now autumn have all seemed to have merged into one. The weeks have gone by without any change. With the wind whipping up a storm, now seems an appropriate time to look at those autumn colours.

This season's new stock is in the shops. I have my eye on a lovely blue coat that I might just treat myself to this week. As usual Pantone has waxed lyrical about the new shades which it has called The Magic of Colour.


'From love potions and the magical hour of sunset to witches and warlocks, fantasy and illusion are inspiring designers this fall season.
With an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, they cleverly manipulate reality to transport consumers to an enchanting place, free from the stresses of everyday life.'



That makes for better reading that any shade of grey!

I hope you Etsy sellers out there are changing your colour tags. I changed last season's Pink Cabaret tag to Pink Flambe and my scarf sold within a week. It really does help.

I've put together a taster of some the gorgeous pieces from Etsy to brighten up those winter days. Whether you're into darks, neutrals or brights, there's something for everyone here.

Thank you for this great post! I always love your color guides! I didn't even think to adjust my tags for the color names but that is a great idea and I am going to make some adjustments now based on this blog post! Thank you so much for the tip!!!!!!!
