As the snow flurries fell peacefully (but very heavily!) in London last weekend, I let the Homes pages of the March Red magazine transport to me the sunshine filled days of spring. Their ‘pretty modern’ story demonstrated a variety of ways to combine bright hues of orange, yellow and pink. The key when combining these three colours is pick two ‘hero’ hues from the palette, mixing in the third sparingly to break the balance. This is seen above in the yellow vase on the dining table, breaking the pink and orange hues of the table cloth; or upon the orange Jonathan Adler chair where various shades of yellow throws are juxtaposed with a standalone pink cushion. This sunny palette is perfect for adding a lift to a pared back, modern space for the coming season. I liked it so much, I couldn’t help but pick products to match the look from three high street stores. What’s inspiring you about this shoot, friends?

  2. I love that color palette! Perfect for feeling like spring is just around the corner! Those rugs and that chair! Delightful!

  3. Pink and yellow, and pink and orange, often end up looking like a teenage room disaster so it's lovely to see some creative, contemporary variations of the colour scheme! 🙂

  4. i would never think to group these colors but i'm really loving it! that table cloth in the first image is brilliant–would love to DIY that! such a fantastic and color-filled post as always, will. thanks for the inspiration!

  5. oh my, i'm in love with this colour palette and would adapt in a heartbeat. totally screaming spring 😉 the second picture is my fave: neutral colours “pimped” with those lovely & springy hues. Will, thanks for putting spring back on my mind after all this snow and ice cold weather. xo, helene

  6. Love these candy colors layered together…what's even more amazing is when they're mixed in with some inky dark walls…Hi gloss navy for a super chic effect! Spring can't come soon enough it seems…beautifully inspired collection!

    Peace. Love. LOL!
