30 Day Challenge : Day 3

Yesterday I spent the morning re-living my childhood by sitting crosslegged on the snug floor, cutting out colour chips from a bunch of paint charts then sticking them onto some mount board.  The exercise was to pick colours that I was instinctively attracted to. This didn't take long to decide, you might say it was a pointless task and just spending 5 minutes looking around my own home would give me the result but the point is, it was a lot of fun (which is integral to the 30 DC philosophy), it served to reinforce what I knew about my personal colour style and my efforts were rewarded with some abstract artwork to hang on my pin board as a reference tool.

In simple terms, the theme running through is strong and muted colours, infused with shots of candy brights.

If you had to summarise your colour style, what would it be ?

Hello luv. Gosh, I have so much to do but am really glad I have to check in each day and do my microblocking. Nice mood boards. How fun to sit and play... that's what it's about!!

You know I am the colour queen.... not sure you ever saw this:

I would have to say that my color style closely matches your board on the left. I love dark colors.
I like that this challenge is encouraging you to get crafty...Strip everything away and just use the very basics to see what inspires and speak to you. It's going to be so interesting to follow along on this journey with you.

Ooh, I love the dark, muted tones on the board on the left. I love this idea! It's still fun to play like a kid and cut up magazines. Gray is my favorite color (my bedroom is painted a dark shade of gray) but I'm also a sucker for maroons and mustard, so I really love that moodboard. What fun! I like the one on the right, too, don't get me wrong. I just don't think I cam pull off color very well, haha. Like Theresa I'm excited to see where this takes you! xo

How fun Sam! Sometimes you just have to sit on the floor and do something don't you, it makes everything more fun.

This is the exact reason I started my tumblr, to get together a set of colours and images and shapes that add up to my style. It's really helped actually and the thing that struck me is how much I like black and white, a combination I never really thought I liked much (hence the missoni towels). My second most favourite colour scheme seems to be Miami/Palm Beach/Art Deco kind of colours, sugar pinks, corals and yellows. It was a bit of a revelation to be honest.

can't wait to see where all this takes you sweetie xx
