Fun One Friday : Advocating for colour
* Colour Alert * Is it just me, or are things for kids these days lacking some wild and wonderful colour? It seems to be the in thing at the moment, to furnish children's spaces with light pastels or monotones. One search on Pinterest brings a myriad of examples in whites and off white, pale pink,… Continue reading Fun One Friday : Advocating for colour
