Loving monochrome...


I do love colour...but it is the neutral shades that are inspiring me at the moment.
 
I like the simplicity of monochromatic designs in shades such as black, white, cream, beige and grey, and I love the way that they can go together in the same room, even though the motifs can be quite different.
 
At the moment I am inspired by the feeling of tranquility the reduced ranges of colour bring to a room. 
 
I am enjoying printing simply with black or white on linen and cotton. It is interesting that having just one colour printed, such as black and white, sometimes highlights the lovely textures and weaves of the base cloth.
 
 

 
 
 
Do you have any colour favourites at the moment?
 
regards, Jill
