Blushing Beauty

There is something very feminine and alluring about the delicate shades of blush, tea rose and peach. These soft, romantic,  ultra feminine colours conjure up images of lace, milliner's netting, fabric roses, long satin gloves, hat boxes tied with satin bows, powder puffs, silk negligees and old fashioned roses. It makes me think of elegant ladies sipping tea in their parlours with French chandeliers and silk upholstered antique furniture.
