This Sunday (8th Novmeber) is Rememberance Sunday; the one day of the year we all take two minutes to stop and remember those who have fought and fallen to protect our freedom. For as long as I can remember I’ve pinned a poppy to my coat in memory, and whether you’re honouring an ancester, family member, friend or supporting the Armed Forces as a whole, I urge you to do the same.
Purchasing my poppy got me thinking more about these pretty (fresh) flowers, with paper-thin petals and array of pretty colours from the classic red to pinks, corals and even oranges available throughout the late Spring and Early summer. These gorgeous hues, with a pop of red make for a contemporary home colour palette so I created this beautiful inspiration board to honour the fallen in a modern, virtual way. I hope they (and you) approve!
