Moodboard Monday - Lavender and Celery

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I had a busy and fun weekend working on Christmas projects.

I always enjoy the moodboards in magazines, don't you?  I picked this lavender and green board at random from Veranda and thought it might be fun to find this color combination in every day rooms, art, jewellery, fashion and nature.

We all know green is serene (easy to remember), is easy on the eyes and abundant in nature, but what does lavender represent?   Gentility, refinement and elegance and the feeling of something special.  Purple represents royalty, but lavender is the color of femininity.......a grown up pink so to speak.  And both colors are refreshing and relaxing.  Did you know that people waiting to appear on tv wait in 'Green Rooms' because it helps them to relax?  Or that a lot of hospital rooms are painted green for the very same reason?  In any case, this color combo obviously is designed to help us feel calm and very special.

I hope you enjoy and perhaps find some inspiration in the images below.......

Have a great day!
