Karens Adventures In Colour For February 2020 Karen Haller

Hello colour lovers!

February isn’t a month I usually associated with colour, especially here in the UK the default is grey.

To be honest, I thought where am I going to find colour this month? Wow! what a colourful month this has turned out to be. This has shown me to never underestimate that colour can be found around every corner and how every easily we can bring colour into our everyday lives. So come with me as I take you through my colourful month for February…      

Karens Adventures In Colour For February Bird Cage Karen Haller
On my way to teach at Central St Martin’s College and just behind King’s Cross station is this wonderful colourful birdcage that comes to life at night. Every time I walk past I hope to have a go on the swing but there’s always a queue. One day…

I attended the opening of Tricia Guild’s (founder of Designer Guild) exhibition showcasing decades of Tricia’s work as a textile designer, being held at the very colourful Fashion & Textile Museum in London.

Fashion & Textile Museum | Tricia is one of those rare creatives who ignores fashion, trends and what anyone else is doing and follows her heart. I just love how she still paints everything first by hand, mixing and creating her own colours.
