Shots from home

Its amazing how photos can change so much in different light. These two rooms at home are a classic example of how a relatively neutral canvas can change seasonally. I have the lounge room above now in more earthy tones rather than the crisper summer colours of raspberry, moss and wheat. This is why rooms like this are so easy to play with and change, not only with the seasons but also with your mood. I wanted this room to be not so pretty so i put more earthier bits in there and a rich winter tone throw and cushions; immediately the room took on a richer glow. If you want to see these changes look down the side bar of my blog site and there is a shot for you to look at. The bedroom below is a similar room which you can add all different colours to. At the moment there is a sage green and soft mocha which looks lovely in this room as it receives plenty of light. I am leaving my banner for the moment as i have so much on my plate getting ready for my Winters Evening on the 22nd of July.....don't forget i will remind your all latter when i am knee deep in all new stock, painting and revamping and putting all my new labeling on everything. Take care Amanda x

Okay--that bed--I MUST HAVE THAT BED. I am in love. Your neutral room schemes are attractive without being blah. That can be hard to pull off!
