Add a splash of colour to your day.

Posted On January 22, 2015| 2 Replies

I really struggle with this time of year.  I hate what feels like endless days of gloom.  Today fleetingly the sun peeped its head out from behind the clouds, but it disappeared as quickly as it arrived.  I love looking at all those great instagram shots from far flung places, reminiscing of our time spent in Australia secretly wishing I was back there and wondering why we ever left.

Alternatively I like checking out the array of colourful blogs and bloggers out there.  There is no end of colour inspiration to brighten your day.  Here are some of my rotating favourites.

DESIGN LOVEFEST I literally love this blog.  Whenever I visit this site I just lust after everything about it not only is she beautiful it is so sleek and well put together.  I love the regular COLOURFEST posts.  What better way to brighten the day than with a splash of pink.


Capture by Lucy : I am slightly addicted to this beautiful blog, but more so Lucy’s instagram feed and her weekly #capturingcolour.  I love that each week there is a different colour which you can tag along with, there are always so many amazing photos.  It really makes you look at what is in front of you and search out for the colour of the week.  Some weeks are easier than others.  Last week it was the colour purple.  This week is the colour Orange.


Oh Happy Day : Just the title of this blog cheers me up.  It is full of great ideas and party inspiration like these stars.

Printable Mini Super Stars | Oh Happy Day!

A Beautiful Mess : I love reading their blog post about living an inspired life.  It is bright colourful, thought provoking and insightful.  A Beautiful Mess is packed full of colour and inspiration.  You could also check out their post about embracing Winter.  It is packed full of useful tips some of which I am going to try and embark upon.

    Hi Amy!

    How are you? Thanks for your lovely note on my blog! It really means a lot to me :)

    Great blog roundup… I’m a weekly reader of DLF… Bri is great and has really made a name for herself in the design world and blogosphere. She’s an inspiration for sure. And her blog is always so happy and cheerful!

    This is generally a harder time of year for me, too. I live in Maine, so it’s very cold in January and February… It’s been below 20 for the past few weeks, so it’s hard to get outside! I usually do read some cheery blogs, or start new design projects. Fresh flowers always make things cheery, too, which is cliche, but still true! :)

    Hope you’re having a good week!

      Hi Amber,

      Thank you for your sweet note. I am loving your blog, so fresh and colourful. It’s not that cold here – well not at the moment, however if we are to believe the weather forecasts for later in the week it may get a bit chilly. I like the idea of the flowers. I find that trying to keep the house a bit tidy helps me as I can feel the sun (when it pops out) without a total tip surround me. x
