Have you guessed I'm enamoured with blue - all blues
from the soft blue with a hint of aqua to the deep inky navy and slate blues!
No points for guessing the program.
YES - the marvellous Downton Abbey!!!
I actually photographed our television screen
during an episode filmed in Isobel Crawley's house
because I needed to record the transluscent Duck Egg blue on the walls.
My husband thought I had completely lost my marbles!!!
One has to be careful using blue on walls in small spaces
as blue is part of the cool colour spectrum
and it can feel cold during the winter months.
However, warmth can be added with furnishing fabrics
rugs, art works, books, table lamps, candles and other decorative pieces.
I love this kitchen/family room.
The kitchen area is white and modern.
The tones of the wooden table, french style chairs and flooring
tie in with the elegant living area in the other part of the room.
Yellow daffodils bring warmth and life to any room.
I think this room is so inviting - what do you think?
The pretty chest of drawers above is painted in
Annie Sloane chalk paint.
2 parts Aubusson Blue and 1 part Duck Egg Blue.
