AURA Travels by Colour – Grey

Today is a delightfully grey day with Tracie (and her sidekick Jaine) of AURA as they travel through Europe. I'm a little bit obsessed with grey these days. As I type this in my grey lounge room drinking coffee from my Cool Grey Pantone mug, I can't help but think if how much I NEED those grey knitted balls! - Jenny x

I love grey in all shades from Dove through to the deepest of smoky Charcoals. Contrasting and toning back with Black, Taupe and off White – I hope you like the subtlety of today’s post.

At the top, each of these shop windows uses monotones successfully, from amazing sculpted elephants to the tiny specks of snow on crafty knitted balls, which are just too sweet.

We loved these iconic oversized images of London that greeted us at Heathrow, very welcoming indeed.

Grey days on our first ever visit to Copenhagen. But it’s such a beautiful & inspirational city that we didn’t mind the weather one bit.

Stunning decorative glass ceiling of Bon Marche in Paris. Tired feet but happy smiles after days and days of walking.
