I have great belief that colour can boost even the worst of moods. And there nothing better to beat the winter blues than a pop of pink or a splash of yellow. This week has been one of those weeks, with a house move and lots of deadlines to contend with. So to be able to look at a round up of our week this week was somewhat cathartic, with joy and a rainbow of palettes to brighten my week. Not a bad job hey?!
