Where Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops January 28 2013, 0 Comments

 

Don't you love the ray of warm happiness that yellow showers you in? Especially in the cosy greys of winter? We love the contrasting, yet complementing moods of these two colors. Seeing yellow in a print immediately makes you think of soaking in the sun at the beach while sipping sweet lemonade. While grey makes you want to cuddle yourself in an oversized cashmere blanket by the fire. 

At ecru, lemon-drop yellow and chinchilla grey are our two staple colors.

As we are already amidst greys this winter, this post will focus on our lemon-drop, to brighten up your day. The image below is the combination of several pigment pastes to arrive to our definition of the perfect shade of lemon-drop.

 

 

As Vincent van Gogh stated, 'How wonderful yellow is.  It stands for the sun.'
