Green

While all these colours have been everywhere and I do find them highly beautiful, my eyes keep getting drawn back to the verdant greens. And it’s never the acid green or the light greens. It’s always the rich green of a frequently watered lawn.

This love for GREEN has been years. Ever since I was 12. We grew up near tropical forests and lawns and gardens. So that rich green was always around.

A matted gold goes well with the verdant green shade. In the living room above, the gold ceiling along with the gold metal étagère and other bits of gold mixes with whites and blacks to create a vibrant space.

When I was 12, I was put into the Green team at high school (our high school was divided into blue, yellow, red and green teams for sports). I stayed GREEN for the next 5 years. (They sometimes move you around to make up the numbers per sports team.)

So my affinity with green has lasted a long time.

The above is one of my favourite green rooms. A super beautiful green and white bathroom. The expanse of green is so calming AND vibrant at the same time.

Not a fan of the bed. Feels a little like a hospital bed.

All that bold, rich green is so invigorating and calming and alive!

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
