b an w Emily 6 flip circle“I wanted something modern, fresh and bright. Versatility was a priority! I didn’t want to feel held down by the colour scheme, so I needed to create something with enough versatility, that I could add other colours during season changes (and mood changes) etc. For example, you may notice some purples and plums now it is Autumn.

I’ve achieved fresh, bright and versatile with contrasting blues and pinks. The main colours being blue, pink and yellow however I’ve given a sense of multi-colour by turning blues into almost greens, pinks into corals peaches and almost oranges and reds. This multi-colour-but-only-almost has given me the versatility I wanted. 

A colour scheme I wouldn’t normally create, bright, fresh and modern, and I must say I am super duper pleased with the turnout of this.”
