It’s such a cold, rainy, winter day here in Sydney, no sun to be seen. It’s a rug up and keep warm kind of day. Seeing warm colours make us feel warm, safe and secure. Do you love sitting next to a fireplace and watching the flames? It’s not only the warmth that holds you there, its the colours as well – like a meditation. Think of ancient tribes sitting around the fire. We’ve brought that back here with outdoor fire pits. And watching the leaves change to beautiful autumn colours is an amazing feeling. It’s like the feel good effect of sitting in the sunlight.
Here are some colours to help you feel warm and toasty and a cloudy day. Try wearing it like a hat, scarf, handbag or shoes – I have a passion for red shoes and I always feel amazing wearing them! Or adding something decorative at home like a vase, cushions, throw rug or flowers. Use touches of these colours as accents and you can change them in summer.

Enjoy the richness of warm colours and feel your energy change
