{ colour kin }

I've often thought colour looks most fresh next to it's 'kin' - it goes against that whole principle of contrasting or complementing colours to make them pop; however I just love the often unexpected look of similar tones and hues all jumbled up together.

Think yellow with shiny gold, peaches and cream, apple to mint green; I just love how organic this always looks, almost like a big real life, working paint palette. So on that note here are a couple of lovely colour pairings to leave you with for now - I'd love to know what you think!
