COLOUR vs BLACK+WHITE

I am still researching ideas for my living room and have recently been browsing some Scandinavian blogs. The ones I have viewed are very modern and show a predilection for black and white interiors.

Even though I love colour, after looking at the Scandinavian blogs, I started to like the black and white palette. The photographs looked fabulous, but would I feel like I am living in an art gallery or hotel? I ask myself, “Could I live with black and white?”

I, more often than not, tend to wear colour. I find that wearing colour makes me feel happy, confident, and expresses my creativity. I suppose it all depends on how I feel on the day, whether I wear monochrome neutrals or colour. I would comment that how you dress, determines what you choose for your house interior. It does for me, anyway.

So colour or black and white?….I have come to the conclusion that I need colour in my life, I need personality! Would you agree or disagree?!

I absolutely love the sun, it makes me smile and happy! It’s great to hear the birds sing in the summer and to see all the flowers bloom, with their mass of colours.

We’ve had some glorious warm weather in the past few days, which has given me motivation to do a bit of gardening. Here is a tour in pictures:
