The quality of light in Scandinavia during the summer is so special, it made this humble ferry look poetically beautiful even on a day when mister sunshine was only partly present.

This ferry interior was spotted on a short boat trip out to an island whilst visiting Norway this summer. The colour combination moss green and camel off set by the bright red seat handles is what I like to describe as retro glorious at its best.  In other words and ultimate retro palette with a hint of Christmas. I believe these colours could work well for modern life too. I can definitely imagine the outcome used on for example scarves would lift the spirit of any camel coat or classic beige mac. Must remember to give this palette a go. Perhaps better used on fashion textiles than interiors.
