Rachel knew she wanted a Purple Brake.
She was really specific about which purple, not a red or a  blue purple a yellow purple. Thankful for the global Pantone system she found it.
After the right purple was found, we then had to find the right choices of two other colours for the combination.
We spoke to friends at Vogue Magazine, interior designers and now had we had  three colours to work with.
We then called one of Rachel’s best friends founder of Bloxhams florists Julia Bloxham with the predicament of the final three colours to get the right TWO. We spoke about each combination and she  explained more about the colour purple, and what she suggested has the most desired effect.
And that was the first edition Purple Brake complimented with bright lime green touches and pure white rotations.
All details down to the chain have been carefully matched to compliment the effect of style and design.
