Colour Inspiration August ~ 'Vintage'

Helen Cloke colour inspiration vintage

I grew up in a turn of the century Villa and now own a 1950's timber weatherboard home so I've spent most of my life around antique furniture and collectables.

I love mooching around in antique shops and seeing what treasures can be found.  Table-wear and in particular, teacups and saucers often have beautiful colour schemes and delicate detailing that can be used as inspiration for lingerie making.

So this month I got inspired by my cup of tea! (And digestive biscuit, of course!)

Vintage colour theme

Mint, Champagne, Powder Blue, Vintage White and Gold

Here are some products that highlight these colours:

vintage coloured products

L to R: Bra tulle in mint, silky satin in champagne, aqua picot elastic, ivory lingerie elastic and camel coloured swimwear

Have a look around to see what keep-sakes and treasures you have on your shelf or tucked away in a china cabinet and get inspired by vintage colour schemes.

Each month I create a limited edition kit that is based on the month's colour inspiration colours; so stay tuned for the next blog post where I'll reveal this months kit.
