Colours to inspire: stripes

Hello! Hump day already – how’s your week going? Today I’m sharing another set of colours to inspire, all found on Instagram recently. You’ll notice I’ve tweaked the title of this series slightly – hopefully making it easier for people to find when searching for colour inspiration.

Oh and if you’ve missed any previous colours to inspire post, here are the links:

With the brighter days generally in full swing, I’ve been loving all the bright colour combinations popping up on Instagram recently. There’s something really uplifting and bold about stripes so this month is very much inspired by that, and the change in season we’re seeing at the moment.

Even though these are all pictures from homemade makes I hope these can inspire you in other ways too (should you not be a crafter). Perhaps you’re looking to decorate your house this year, or thinking about buying some new furniture, or looking for a new wardrobe, I’d hope there’s something for everyone here.

Jo’s Instagram feed is great and I love the randomness of this stripey project; the yellow/pink/yellow towards the left of the picture is probably my favourite, but all the shades work really well together.

Another granny stripe blanket and the yellow stripe in this blanket really catches my eye; I love a yellow and pink combination so this colour combination is an all round winner. Sonja’s crocheting is also super neat and she’s captured her work really well in this picture.

The royal blue shade in this combination is striking and really caught my eye – teamed up with the orange and pick and I think it makes for an interesting collection of colours. The ripple technique looks great and I could see this looking good as a picnic blanket.

Which is your favourite? Any that specifically stand out? I’m on the lookout for more combinations, so shout if you see anything on your travels and I might pop it in a later post.

Thanks for reading!
