Today is one of those precious, sunny autumn days here in Bath. Everything is golden: the sunlight, the autumn leaves, the sandstone buildings, the November birthstone citrines here on my workshop table. It’s the kind of day that you want to hold onto, to soak up the last of the warmth before winter kicks in.
It was easy for me to pick a Pantone autumn colour to focus on today. I’m going for Mykonos blue, which makes me think of intense, cloudless skies and summer heat.
Mykonos blue is close to royal blue. It offers an intense shot of colour, with that classic feel that I think all deeper blues have.
