pastel meets bold

On the way back from Yorkshire Moor, we stopped for a cuppa at a small village. Then I did my usual ‘must-do’ when visiting a new place. Charity shop hunting! (You know me and treasure hunting in this post)

I bought this lovely ceramic jug for just 99p! Swinnertons Pottery is not rare to find but I fell in love with this colour called “chelsea blue”. I often like to decorate things with just white or natural colour. Today I felt for the opposite. A lovely bunch of bold coloured Dahlias from a market to mix with this pastel blue. Placed in our guest room that has a bright red wall. Do you think it worked?? 
Happy Sunday, everyone! xm
