My love affair with blue, the turquoise variety in the main, does not seem to be diminishing. I have a red thing going on too, a big georgian mansion with a double ht hallway with a stone cantilevered stairway, 10m high !!, however thats another story that I am very excited about.
I found an image on Style Salonista this morning, a fashion shot by Demarchelier, that’s so cool and very inspiring from an interiors perspective. the mix of dark navy wool, chocolate, cafe au lait inserts, tuquoise embroidery with bronze studs and beading, all topped with a beautifully quilted turquoise hat……… A Dior creation ,that to me is stunning. I want to use these colourings in a huge victorian pile that I am designing, it also has an amazing galleried entrance , large spaces, tall ceilings. The richness of hte blues make other colours zing, add orange, golds and yellows, paler teals, duck egg and greys for softer less dramatic areas.
