Greenery certainly brings nature into your home.

Glorious green leafy proposition, matching fabric and wallpaper from fabricsandpapers.com

A slash of green on a white background is absolutely refreshing.

Oh a green Ikat fabric can make your sunroom dance with joy.

White trees on a green background, a wallpaper that can turn your nature around.

Love these 2 Louis the 16th chairs with mix and match fabrics, it makes them look a few centuries younger.

Introduce pink and orange flowers in your greenery, it will make you happy.

Bring colour and music in your life

It is said that colour has soul, Isaac Newton thought that colour can be musical. There is seven colours in a rainbow and there is seven notes in a scale.

Robin egg blue is soft and gentle.

If you want to know a little more about the correlation between colour and music, you can go to http://www.gootar.com/theory.htm I am afraid it will get to scientific for me, my attention span is like a hummingbird today, but it is an interesting theory.

Today we will explore some of the blues.
