Guest Blogger: {Magnolia Rouge}: Plum Perfect

Hello lovely Perfect Palette readers!! I'm Kate from Magnolia Rouge... and Ruby & Willow (that's the day job!) I'm thrilled to be guest posting here today whilst Chrissy has a lovely break. I mean to be asked to do an inspiration board for the queen of colour palettes is quite the honour!! For today I'm using a recent invitation job I did for inspiration, as the colour palette was just so incredibly pretty. and luscious. With warm rose and plum tones, combined with a grey-brown shade it excludes girly sophistication. I love the idea of bringing berries into your bouquet or table decor to work these colours into the rest of your day. I hope this adds a little pretty to your day! Thanks for having me here Chrissy xo
