Always have flowers in your home

This photo was taken at one of my exhibitions at Joanna Keeley’s flower studio in Bishopthorpe. The flowers just bought so much colour and vibrancy to the day and actually make you feel relaxed. Flowers are a great way to add a splash of colour to a room scheme and allow you to change it often. They add freshness and make your room lived in. But an absolute no no- are wilting or half dead flowers in a vase!

Painting inspired colour scheme

This photo posted on Houzz by Stephen Fletcher architects shows how a colour and room scheme was inspired by a painting. The square shape of the frame is also reflected in the cabinets and bookshelf design and also the square upholstered poufs. One of the best schemes I have seen lately!

The discovery of the century?

Back to the 14th century BC…

Most people are familiar with the well know burial chambers in the Valley of the Kings discovered by Howard Carter in 1922- that of King Tutankhamun. The burial chambers are magnificent and are painted with scenes showing the young pharaoh’s burial rituals. The colours used all have a different symbolic meanings.
