trendspotting: citrus

So, we’ve talked about the watercolour trend for spring, and I’ve shared my love for Moroccan wedding blankets. Now, I’d like to talk about citrus. Citrus colours and motifs are really having a moment, and I couldn’t be happier. I think yellow is such a happy hue (and looks fetching when paired with cobalt blue or kelly green), and don’t even get me started on tangerine and grapefruit. If I’m looking for a pop of colour or an accent, citrus ones are usually my go-to. What do you think?

colour inspiration: the grand budapest hotel

This past weekend, I saw Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and absolutely loved it. While the characters are charming, the real star of the show is the fantastic production design. The colours are so rich and wonderful (mostly pastels with bold strokes of red and purple), and the Grand Budapest itself was a real looker in its glory days of the 1930s. I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just share a few pictures.
