Chocolate & pink

Home in Melbourne with super high and large pink glassed splashback

The room we spend most time in is the living/dining space in our small rented townhouse. This is the hub. The kitchen is not part of this space. It’s a long rectangular room with one double folding door as an entrance. This is where I spend my day… daydreaming.

If we bought this townhouse, I’d be painting this entire space chocolate brown, painting the trim, window frames and ceiling a brilliant white and to the far wall, I’d be installing a pink glazed… effect.

Kinda like the one found in this South Yarra, Melbourne beauty, blogged by All Things Bright and Beautiful.

(And ditching the awful lights fittings.)

And then, after a month, I’d be inspired by yellow and white. *sigh* My poor husband.

    Likewise I don’t have a soft spot for pink at all so a chocolate brown would be divine! Good choice

    I love the pink wall in the kitchen area! This is a wonderful space, big and open. I would love to live there to. :) Back to daydreaming…..
