When I saw her jewelled green kitchen, I fell in love with it. It just spoke to me… drew me. Caught me…
“I blame my love of sparkly, shiny things on my Cuban roots,” says Cameron, in the recent interview with Elle Decor. Of the kitchen, Kelly Wearstler and Cameron Diaz chose unlacquered brass for the backsplash, counters, and sink fittings. This is so sophisticated, lending an old world 1920s glamour to the space.
But maybe three or four months ago, I began to see a change in myself. A return to a colour I grew up loving. Instead of seeing bright yellows and whites everywhere, I began to dream of rich greens and deep blues and lustrous gold and copper metals, along with great swathes of white. The past few posts has been about that.
These were the last few photos on the blog:
Any wonder why Cameron Diaz’s kitchen is my current favourite!?
Although, I doubt the colour scheme will work in my rather dark kitchen space.
But I do wonder why the tastes and the colour swatchbook has fanned out from the yellows to the deeper, richer hues. Maybe it’s a maturing of mind? Maybe it’s a emotional return to the rich green grasses of Malaysia where I was born and grew up, where my mum still lives. All I know is while the happy sunny yellows still appeal, I’ve changed yet again. And I welcome it, as change is so exciting!
More on our own dark kitchen soon :)
