|Laura Ashley Oriental Garden in Duck Egg|
There is something about 'duck egg' when describing a colour isn't there? Duck egg blue. N-i-c-e. I don't think I have ever seen a real duck egg. Have you? But. I can imagine the colour. Very stylish. So, one of my projects this year is to find a chest of drawers for my bedroom and cover the top with a beautiful wallpaper. I bought Oriental Garden in duck egg blue with pearlescent inks. Isn't it lovely? Actually, in real life it is a bit more blue looking. Nicer than this image really. I don't have the chest of drawers yet but hey, the wallpaper was on s-a-l-e so I had to start somewhere. I am even toying with the idea of covering the drawer fronts too with the wallpaper like the one below but it might be too girly-girl for me. I am a bit plain. I like sleek lines and minimal fuss. Oh I like fussy-fuss too but not stuff that I would get sick of or that would go out of trend. I spent my childhood in the 'Mission Brown' era a-n-d we had a sunny-yellow kitchen. It has lasting effects you know...
