This week's Palette Pingpong challenge finally helped me get around to a small but long overdue makeover project. You can find Gabrielle's original picture over at the green gables (along with a terrific book review she posted earlier in the week), and this is the palette it inspired:
Generally speaking, I'm not overly fond of pink or purple, but I do have the biggest crush on Melody Miller's Ruby Star fabric line just now. The colour scheme above matches perfectly with this print in particular, so - strictly in the interests of Palette Pingpong and not at all because I was looking for any excuse to buy some - I, um . . . bought some. And teamed with a freshly-painted lamp base, I think it does the job pretty well.
It's the first time I've used one of our swatches for a home decor project, and I'm now thinking it might be fun to try it out on something bigger - a quilt maybe, or even the colour scheme for a whole room. If you've got a picture you think would be an especially good source of inspiration, I'd love to see it. Leave a link below, and you never know what it might lead to.
Similarly, if you've made something inspired by a Pingpong palette, please do get in touch so we can (a) come and have a nosy, and (b) share it here, for everyone else to enjoy, too.
