Purple, blue and green

Fresh sweetpeas with Alison  Dupernex's scarf in the Handmade Happiness window
Peacock velvet anyone? Beautiful fabric from Tara Interiors next door.
Like many other women I find this colour combination almost irresistible.
I like to use these colours in jewellery.

Some colours are cheerful, even exciting - red and yellow and orange; some are soothing and peaceful - pale blue and pale green; I think anything extreme - using neons for instance might jar after a time. 

Do you notice what colours people have been wearing in hot weather?
Crisp white linen always looks cool and comfortable I think, but white trousers and skirts can be a bit see-through. Blue and white and pale pink look good in the heat. Corals, oranges and browns not so great in high temperatures. I suppose those are the colour of fire...
Sweet peas and hollyhocks are in gardens right now - good cool colours for clothes in the heat, and, as usual nature shows us the way.
