Building a palette for me is always an iterative process. It’s like the dreaded blank canvas for painters – you have to get something down you can mess around with. Your first fabric pull is never going to be perfect, so don’t expect it to be, but you have to start somewhere. Take things out. Put things back. It was my utmost delight to have a little chat with, and get to know, Brigitte of Zen Chic, and discuss the thing that makes me happier than anything else in the world – playing with colour. Brigitte suggested adding a couple of blues that would help bring out the blues in the Barcelona palette. I took out the pinks. I added them back because the palette needed that delicate touch. Play! Have fun!
