Something a Bit Different: Interior Design Colour Palettes

Chatty

On top of everything else, we’ve moved into a grade 2 listed Victorian terrace.

It’s charming and quirky, but also dated and spider-filled. So we’ll be gradually doing it up over the next few months (…years).

I don’t have lots of impressive Instagrammable photos of it, mostly because we barely have any furniture, but I thought it would be fun to share the colour scheme of one of the rooms. The photo is edited to show the colour more accurately.

Josh and Bike #1

Acrylic, Painting, Step-by-Step

I’ve started another painting to get a bit of practise in. This is Josh in front of our bike and cabin (and my messy set up).

He is such a fluff bear so a great chance to practise painting fur. The canvas is only A4 so it’s a nice size to fill a space quickly (which, at least to begin with, I find motivating).

I’ve realised I’m quite an expressive painter. Lots of mark making rather than realistic strokes. Obviously this painting is still in it’s infancy, but when I’ve worked a bit more on it I’ll try to challenge myself to fine-tune it a little bit.

The weather this weekend was relatively warm and bright. There’s the promise of painting outside in the air!

Happy Monday all ❤
