Q: What's your name?
Q: How many arms do you have?
Q: Favourite colour?
So it seems natural that my home would reflect this with glorious shades of green in each room highlighted with accents of eau de nil and jade. Yup, that sounds about right.
So what's going on?
My home is mainly neutral.
There is lots of colour on the walls in the way of paintings, books and various collections.
The bathroom was a daring experiment in a lovely rich - red.
The fireplace wall in the living room is - red.
Once you start really looking most of the accents are - (yeah okay we've got it now) red!
|What's the time - ten to RED!|
I don't know how this has happened. I know it shouldn't matter but it has been bugging me.
Am I a green fraud?
This niggle must have been dancing at the back of my mind as I went for my Friday afternoon charity shop trawl.
I was immediately drawn to this lovely top.
Followed by this dress.
Then these beautiful dainty plates jumped out in front of me.
Followed by these bowls.
And then - as if by magic (a la Mr Benn) it was all pulled together by the discovery of this fabulous tablecloth.
It was only as I unpacked my goodies that I realised there was a common theme. Green.
Had the little green fairy been sitting on my shoulder?
Had the dancing niggle nagged my subconscious into action?
Am I over thinking this (yes you are now be quiet)?
I was relieved.
I am not a fraud.
I love green!
What's your colour of choice?
