I see the future and the future is green...

Hello my lovelies!

I have been busy spring cleaning and generally trying to get my house in order. We've still got work to do on the barn (believe it or not!) landscaping should start later this month and our front room (which has basically been out of action since we moved in due to damp) is now damp-free and freshly painted...white. So, using nature and the time of year as my guide I see shades of green being my palette for the furnishings in this new room.

It's the room you walk into from the front door, so I want it bright and welcoming but cosy enough to snuggle in, as it will be our new 'library' or 'reading nook'. These images are my inspiration....







This is not in my comfort zone; as it's quite a bit brighter than my usual taste, but it 'feels' right for this space - let's see how far I go with it!

Happy Tuesday to you all!

Hugs, B x

Thank you for visiting us and following Red Rose Alley. Oh, I really like that color of green. It's perfect for spring. I am in the middle of a move right now, so I know how that can be. It's fun to decorate the new place. I will be back to visit with you, and I am now following you too.

Hi B! Thanks so much for stopping by Hill House - yes our lives seem remarkably similar - I look forward to seeing what you do in the future, so that I can have my decisions made in advance - ha ha! I love your images - green is such a beautiful and calming colour, but also so fresh for Spring. I ADORE that last image with the cushions and colours. I love the country house feel to it, although it takes great skill to achieve that mix so casually, and I'm not sure that I'm that clever!
Can't wait to see more. Paula x

I made it out for a short while this morning to garden and clean up some. Then it started thunder storming, so I had to hurry. But it's better than before!
Love all the splashes of green!
