Colour board - blue and green

I have put together another colour board because I enjoyed doing the other one so much. This combination is blue and green. I love the colour of thistles with the rich blue and bright green at the tips. These colours go together naturally and are really fresh, I think they look particularly lovely against a natural wood or stone as in the two images shown.

The paint colours are from dulux (first two) and farrow and ball (second two), names as follows from left to right:

Grecian Garland 1, Kiwi Burst 2, Cook's Blue, Pitch Blue

Where would you use this combination?

Love the Look

This weeks room for love the look is a homely and summery lounge as featured on house to home via apartment therapy. I have a bit of an obsession with orange sofas just now. In my search for one for this feature I discovered you can find a few in the states but there are not many available in the UK unless you go ultra modern. As for the rest of the room, here's how you can get the look:

1 - Wicker chair from World of wicker - £439
2 - Orange fabric sofa bed from Furniture Depot - $599
3 - Paloma vase from Oka direct - £85
4 - Large whitewash vase from overstock -  €135.79
5 - Bea cushion in orange from Lombock - £12
6 - Turquoise pouffe from Serena and Lily - $395

Colour board - grey and yellow

Another colour board - this time grey and yellow. I keep on coming across images of lovely refreshing lemons and lemonade whilst doing research for my wedding, which brings me back to what has to be my colour obsession of this year - grey and yellow. I love the combination of fresh bright yellow and the dutiful grey.

The paint colours are all from farrow and ball, names as follows from left to right:

Plummet, Pavillion Grey, Citron and Babouche

What do you think of yellow and grey?
