Winter Preserves

June 8th, 2011 by  |  Published in Headline, The Look  |  4 Comments

The chilly season has just begun however as we pull out the extra blankets, get the kettle ready for the boil and find ourselves sentimentally listening to ‘Here Comes the Sun’ by the Beatles whilst it buckets down outside, it doesn’t mean that colour has to go into hibernation the same way we want to join the bears and sleep in until Spring comes around. Winter is a time for the most delectable colours to emerge - of fireplaces and berry preserves, of mulberry and strawberry jams; orange marmalade; honey with cinnamon sticks and currents and gooseberries. So as the days grow colder, and before you grab the black coat and navy scarf, why not consider embracing the colours of the winter season?
