In my family parties growing up, everyone contributed to the entertainment....either by telling stories, impersonations of movie stars, a dance or sharing your musical instrument.....one of my sister's was singing Mull of Kintyre, it was her 'party piece'.
The song takes you mind of a snap photo trip over the hills of Scotland, through the glens and over the Moors - of time well spent with family celebrating the colour in our lives together. But in thinking of this song - it also inspired me today for my Colour Story......Moor from the Pratt & Lambert paint palette.

A colour from purple, with pure hues of red and blues, tints of white. Its saturation bright, calm and the mood due to the red, one of warmth and soothing to the spirit. Moor has a exotic and cosmopolitan feel to it, one I would associate with Art Deco interiors, grand halls, and simple settings of white plaster and silver accents. A colour that inspires the conversations of what we know and sparks creativity of realms within.
But how do we use this colour, Moor in our space? Paint colour can be the backdrop or undertone to a room - the element that should balance the space. It can also be the colour to revive an old piece of furniture. But I have chosen to use it as the backdrop on the walls of this room. Here are the elements that start a conversation with MOOR into your space, a combination of contemporary yet West Coast setting. I imagine mohair pillows on the settee, transition the space........
