As the days get shorter the colour palette of our daily lives gets darker. The velvety blacks of tiny violets are peeping out from plant pots. In nature there never seems to be a truly black black apart from, perhaps, the moonless midwinter sky at night. I’ve always been interested in off blacks… inky, glossy aubergine; the darkest ultramarine satin that has a sheen that brings light into its depths. Chocolate and beetroot cake, once baked has a crumbly deep purple-brown hue impossible to reproduce (I’ve tried)….
Bring on winter and all its chromatic fabulousness.
