INTRODUCING Beauty in the Everyday: My Life in Colour Series

March 6, 2024

Life’s a canvas. At least, that’s how I’ve always seen it. Each moment, a brushstroke; every day, a splash of colour. I didn’t just want to capture images; I wanted to capture feelings, the undercurrents that colour our daily lives. That’s what ‘My Life in Colour’ is all about. It’s not about landscapes or sunsets—it’s about those small, seemingly inconsequential moments that, when you look at them, are anything but.

Back in January 2020, I didn’t know what the year would hold. None of us did. But I started with a simple desire to share. To show that even the smallest moments are worth noticing. A green flash of a grasshopper in the garden, the warm ochre of morning coffee, the tranquil grey of a rainy afternoon – moments of inspiration, of life, of the extraordinary design surrounding us.
Colour can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. And even through the challenges of 2020 and 2021, this truth remained: beauty didn’t stop; inspiration didn’t falter. Colour continued to weave its way through each day, brightening dark corners and highlighting moments of grace.

You’ll see swatches on my website; I add new ones each week – my way of bookmarking life. They’re snippets, colour-coded memories that may seem mundane at first glance. But look again, and you’ll see a story, a sliver of life. This series is my invitation to you to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, to notice the palette of your life, and to embrace the full spectrum of moments that define you.

This journey through colours doesn’t just enrich our appreciation for the world; it ignites our creativity. Seeing life in vibrant hues can inspire our next design project, influence the palette for a painting, spark an idea for a bold new manicure, or even help select the perfect ensemble of wedding colours. In these splashes of colour, we find inspiration for our most creative expressions.

Moreover, embracing the colours around us reminds us of the ultimate designer—God, as Chris Do eloquently puts it. It’s seeing His handiwork in the hues of our lives, understanding that every shade and every tint reflects a piece of divine design. This perspective transforms how we see our surroundings, turning every glance into a search for inspiration and every moment into a potential spark for our next creation.

As we navigate through 2024, let’s continue to find splashes of joy in the everyday. Let’s cherish the little things. Because, in the end, it’s these little things that paint the bigger picture of our lives. Join me in celebrating the hues that bind us, make us feel, and remind us of the endless beauty of being.
And so, ‘My Life in Colour’ lives on – a testament to life’s rich tapestry, to the moments that might mean nothing to the world but everything to us. Because in every shade and moment, there’s a touch of the Great Designer’s grace and inspiration.

Let’s live life in colour, shall we? Not just as observers but as creators inspired by the ultimate palette provided by life itself.
