a study in colour. green.

we have a completely useless space in our house.


as i was explaining to a friend the other day, it is called a breezeway,.and it connects the sleeping spaces in our house to the living spaces.  there are french doors on either side,..and boards on the floor,.  not much living goes on there.


a thoroughfare.


an oversized hallway.


a space large enough, and with a nature transient enough that could cope with a strong splash of colour.


i am thinking green.


originally it was to be turquoise,....but now i am thinking an indochine green.


so, i am off to bunnings today armed with these images,... 





these first four images are courtesy of country style magazine. (feb 2010).


a divine apartment in brunswick heads.  a tranquil, green oasis.  dreamy rustic shutters,..lazy ceiling fans moving the warm air,..green,..green,...green.


it's fabulous.








these gorgeous images are via sibella court.





and i am thinking that the perfect colour **could** be something like this...


anyway,..off to look at paint.


enjoy your day.

hi! i'm loving your blog. and i'm feeling your green vibe as well. i just painted my tiny sunroom with sibella's 'desert' and i'm so pleased, but i know her 'cicada' is beautiful as well- might be more down your alley (or up your brezzeaway?). can't wait to see what you decide on!
