Hemlock green is one of Pantone’s chosen colours for their Spring palette 2014. I never used to be a fan of pastel colours, surrounded by IOS and windows 8 designs, however, recently I find more and more beauty in mellow tints and shades, Hemlock being no exception.

I honestly wish I was brave enough to dye my hair any pastel colour, what put’s me off is the upkeep, but this girl makes it look absolutely amazing; so on trend. Without going for the hair-do, a Hemlock backpack from American Apparel or pastel nails look great accompanying outfits and really pop against black.

As well as popping against black in fashion, hemlock green really does work with white in interior spaces, especially kitchens. This lampshade is soooo dreamyyyy…
