colour, design and architecture

My three favourite nouns,
(and most googled nouns on my laptop)
Bold and clever use of colour in architecture is always inspirational to me,
especially when it's intricate and beautifully detailed.
Below is a sample of what is on my inspiration board this week

Great use of coloured glass in this building via pinterest

Building in Tokyo, Japan via google

Barcelona flower market via google
Stunning, aren't they?

I'm also loving the interior colour scheme of this North Coogee home (below),
(and the oversized pendant lights on top of the dining table, aren't they cool?)
The outdoor area is perfect for gatherings with friends or for coffee and paper on Sunday morning.
The introduction of colour in the form of artwork, rugs and scattered cushions
is a clever way to inject personality to a space without overly committing to a specific colour
(cushions can change with the season and artwork can be on rotation).
Easy, isn't it?

What do you think? Could you live here?
I most definitely could.

Wish you all wonderful + colourful weekend

Catch up soon

    I have been away from the computer for so long (too busy!) We have a week off from school, so I am trying to catch up! I love your picks here (as always!), and hope that la dolce e vita with you and your family!
