Blue As The Ocean.

I first spotted the photograph above in a magazine article which featured the Brooklyn townhouse home home of Beastie Boy Mike Diamond.

Further investigation revealed that his home has featured fairly extensively on the internet since via The New York Times, Apartment Therapy and, of course, Pinterest.
In fact, I first saw the house when I came across his kitchen/dining room on Pinterest....

The photograph in Diamond's bedroom is one of a series entitled "On The Beach" by photographer Richard Misrach, taken between 2002-2005.

Seeing the Misrach photo reminded me of a series of images I've been saving on Pinterest....
images of blue oceans, that beautiful aqua blue that you see in certain parts of the world.

I can remember driving around a corner of the island of Antigua on my honeymoon & suddenly seeing a huge expanse of water the colour of which that I had only previously seen in holiday brochures.....
a gorgeously shimmering turquoise,
the kind of colour you don't actually believe exists in nature until you see it with your own eyes.

We are planning to feature a lot of white in our new house, which is a new thing for me really, I've never decorated in that way before....
with my daughter's room, I painted everything white (floors & walls) and loved that the colour in the room was provided by the furnishings....the artwork, shelves of books, the rug etc.

It allowed her own personal & much loved possessions to stand out as a feature.

Our new kitchen will probably be white & I am thinking of having a large print in the dining part of the kitchen, since it is going to be one large open plan space.

love this Caribbean triptych by Gray Malin

Coogee Beach, Australia
