Happy Easter!

Easter 2013 I've chosen a contemporary, monochrome colour palette of grey, black, and white with natural elements of warm woods, fresh green foliage and patterned plumage. Strong graphic patterns add a modern touch to the traditional Easter egg. Here are a few of my favourite finds.

For more information on anything shown in the above images and links to tutorials, please click on the names under each photograph to go through to their respective web sites. I create my mood boards/colour palettes with a computer programme called Photoshop by Adobe which is available for both Apple Mac and PC computers.

The colour swatches shown above I create as a suggestion for furnishings, carpets, ornaments, fixtures, fittings and paints. They do not come from manufacturers charts but I am sure that if you want to use them for paint shades that your favourite supplier will be happy to help match them. 

As always, if I have featured your photograph and you would rather I didn't, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will remove it with my sincerest apologies. 

With warmest wishes
