Entries in green (22)
I thought I'd give you a short dose of eye candy this afternoon, via the fabulous photos of Norwegian photographer Sveinung Bråthen. I've got an emerald wall - the colour of the year says Pantone, some black - via a chalkboard wall in a dining room, a matte black kitchen cabinets (SWOON!), a black painted sections to highlight art (always been a fan of that technique), a black wall behind a black leather sofa (HOT!) and a couple of other goodies.
Take a creative brush to a blank canvas. With painterly strokes apply the colours of life. A landscape to live in, a portrait of the occupants. A graceful vignette, a subtly sublime still life. Beautiful homes by Betsy Brown. Neutral palettes informed by careful colour. Classical and modern, delicate and elegant yet never precious.
Hearth and home. Sense of place and purpose and history. Homes to anchor a well lived life. Tradition and quiet modernism. Genius loci, respect for the past, reach for the future but gently, solidly, purposefully and creatively. Inspiration from Austin, Texas based Tim Cuppett Architects.
Dear Mr Miller,
This is a love note. I love your sense of colour. I have never felt green before. Perhaps I have but your greens, oh my, they thrill me. I love the light in your photos. Soft like a whisper, a promise, a dream. I love your composoition, your depth of field. No. No. Those are technical ideas. It's more than that. I want to rip through my screen and just be in your shots. Somewhere an old clock is ticking, children are laughing outside and a dust mote hangs in the air. I just sit and breath in the beauty.
