Happy Weekend: Farmers' Market Colours

A week or so ago I was walking through Bath when I happened to pass by Jamie Oliver's first UK deli. The moment I saw the deli I stopped in my tracks as my Colour Inspiration alarm bells started to sound! Rain had been falling all morning but the skies had begun to clear and the farmer's market style display of fruit and vegetables outside looked so crisp and fresh. Vibrant yellow tomatoes and citrus bright lemons flirted with Mr. Bazaar's colour-loving lens (I mean, seriously, I was in heaven); the remnants of the morning rainfall gently rolled off the fruits. A chef from Jamie's nearby restaurant came to collect some produce and we ended up chatting for ten minutes, discussing the simple pleasures of fresh produce and the recipes each variety inspired us to make. It was one of those unexpected, lovely moments of shared enthusiasm with a complete stranger. After the chef went back to work, I moved inside, my imagination caught by the bold, typographic and colourful packaging that graced many of the products. I admired the synergy between inside and out, fresh and packaged, interior design and food - notice how the red stools tie in with the produce and the packaging. In all, I must have spent at least an hour soaking up the atmosphere of this tiny deli yet it felt like all of five minutes. I left feeling inspired by the two colour stories - the exotic and primary brights of the produce and packaging, and the comforting, calm hues of the rustic interior. I hope you find some colour inspiration this weekend, friends!
