A mustard colour palette

October 9, 2017

It’s always at this time of year that I particularly start craving an autumnal colour palette. For me, there’s something a bit special about mustard or yellow when the weather is a bit colder outside.

But I’ve found some great fabrics there in the past and this time was no different.
