Colour Journey

As you know one of my goals for January is to learn more about colours. I bought colour: a journey by Victoria Alexandra using book vouchers I got Christmas.

It was featured in Simple Things Magazine, and when I found Victoria's blog, I knew my suspicion that it would be a good starting point was right...

The book starts with an introduction to the importance of colour in our lives and how colours have different meanings in different cultures. It is a fascinating insight into our world. A look at each colour in turn follows, complete with vivid images.

I am still reading the introduction, but already I have been struck by how much colour influences our lives and feelings. Victoria writes:

Life's as bright and simple or as dull and difficult as you make it. 

This one line has stuck with me... there is so much more in this book, and I can't wait to keep reading!

My colour adventure is off to a good start....
