Interested in using it in your home? Check out Houzz’s ideas here.  I personally prefer it either in natural light or a slightly darker hue.

I think I prefer the crafting option for using it. Here, The Inspired Wren looks at some sewing examples with the colour. There are definitely a lot of options to have it as a focal point (e.g. a cardigan) or a highlight (e.g. flowers in a white dress). Beautiful!
