Its the end of October and here in Limerick the days have been bright and fresh, with the colors of autumn everywhere. Shades of red and yellow foliage signal that magic time of the year between summer and winter, before the long dark evenings in front of the fire set in.
A color that we've noticed is on the rise is warm shade of yellow almost like butternut squash reminding me of my favorite winter soup from the Barefoot Contessa. I use to to make it every year when we were in Brooklyn and hopefully will again when we get into our house. We took inspiration from the Plain English kitchen below for our own victorian kitchen. They call the colour boiled egg. We used yellow pink from Little Greene. Can't wait to show you ours when it is done.
If you are looking for a pop of colour to warm up a modern space with our ubiquitous grey walls this is a shade that will bring the autumn glow of outside in. When it comes to choosing a colour take inspiration from your surroundings and you won't go wrong. This is much more reliable method than following the latest trends in a magazine. We are used to seeing the drab greys of a rainy winter but Ireland is bursting with light and colour if you are open to it.
These are a couple of items we have in stock. I especially love the heart shape balloon mold, would look great hanging on a wall.
