blue and green

My favourite colour is green--all shades and hues. I like blue as well, and I find the combination can be calming and beautiful. It probably stems from my childhood, and all the time spent gazing at green forests, blue lakes, and blue sky. My aunt's house had one of those funky room dividers made of hanging strings of beads, and they were blue and green. My mother didn't care for it. "Blue and green should never be seen," she said.

No wonder I gravitated toward Martha Stewart as an adult. She made it o.k. to decorate with blue and green. And to match paint to the eggshells of your rare chickens.

"shells of your rare chickens"

What the fuck are you talking about?

She was known for drawing decorating inspiration from the shades of the eggs her rare hens laid. I think her paint line might still have some of those shades available.

Green is our peoples' colour!

I'm currently bouncing celadon around as a possible wedding colour - not for me, obvs, I'm far too pure :p

My living room has robin's egg blue walls and the mouldings are painted mint green. You'd be very calmed!

Wow. Your blog reminds me of an SCTV skit where Andrea Martin plays an over-medicated woman with a glass menagerie collection. "Look at the way the light captures the angles of this pretty little glass fawn - it reminds me of the fragile relationship I had with my mother..."

Come back down to earth, for God's sake!

Did you know that you can make your very own green by mixing blue and yellow?

Violette said...

You crack me up. In a light green eggshell kind of way.
Martha Stewart is made up of robot parts.
