COLOUR PALETTE : reykjavik

I was lucky enough to be whisked away to Iceland for 3 nights for my 30th birthday – which was on the 8th December if you want to make a note for next yearΒ πŸ˜‰

Unlike anywhere else I have been, it is Christmassy and timeless in equal measures. There is something quirky and cute about all of the buildings in Reykjavik, with the multi-coloured host of roofs and facades.

Here are some snaps I took which capture the essence of Reykjavik…


Pops of cheery colour


Cosy Christmas vibes – fairy and festoon lights everywhere!

We also managed to see the beautiful northern lights on our last night! We were very lucky the clouds cleared for us… here we are looking very chilly under the Aurora Borealis πŸ˜€


The climate is cold and can be harsh, to counter-act this there are countless furry textures teamed with thick wool knits and plenty of cockle warming spiced drinks to compliment. The Icelandic people certainly have this clever combo figured out and works perfectly with a hygge way of living which is becoming ever popular during these colder months in the UK.

For those of you who haven’t yet come across “hygge” (pronounced hoo-gah), it is a typical Danish art and oozes cosiness and charm. Think flickering candle-light, embracing armchairs with throws-a-plenty and comforting cups of steaming tea (or perhaps something a little bit stronger)! Reykjavik shows off this Danish art in a wonderful way.

Inspired by the hues scattered all over the city, here isΒ a free colour palette which I think captures the fun and charm of this wonderful City.
