Tracie Ellis is sadly leaving us today – but you’ll be pleased to know she’s going out with a bang!  Today’s post is a vibrant  series of rainbow-inspired shots.   DONT FORGET also that the lovely folks at AURA are giving you guys chance to win a quilt cover and pillowcase set of ANKITA, AURA’s new Winter 2011 bed collection not yet in stores! Leave a comment on any of this week’s guest posts to be in the running! – Lucy

Every time I am lucky enough to visit Paris I get this full on colour inspiration overload that I don’t seem to have anywhere else – if you haven’t realized already, yes I do quite like Paris. On this trip everywhere we looked there were gorgeous displays of beautiful strong colours; from macaroons to French fizzy drink, marshmallows and t-shirts, colour was everywhere. I hope you enjoy this uplifting pop of colour!

Beautiful displays of colourful product, and the funky painted Jigsaw store in Nottinghill.

The fabulous chair above is from the one and only Paul Smith, I have always admired his design and sense of colour (that and he drives a Mini, couldn’t ask for much more cool factor than that!) I love the electric blue mixed back with his classic wave print in the window of his Mayfair store.

Thank you for taking the time to read my posts this week, I hope I have been able to share with you a little bit of my trip inspiration – and your feedback is always welcome x

And as a thank you to and all readers of The Design Files, we at AURA would like to give you a chance to win a set of ANKITA, our new Winter 2011 bed collection that is yet to hit the stores! The prize is an ANKITA Quilt Cover and Pillowcase set… (as pictured here).  Please leave a comment on any of this week’s guest posts to be in the running! ALSO we will be extra chuffed if you pop over and visit us as www.aurahome.com.au too!
