When I lived in England for three years, I realized much later that part of the reason I loved the landscape was the fact that it was so green — my favourite colour. Myriad different shades of green at every turn await, while out on a walk or country drive, and I found this palette both beautiful and relaxing wherever I went. I have always loved the colour green so it’s not surprising that England had this effect on me.
Last summer, some clients asked me to oversee the interior design of their main floor extension, which included a dream kitchen, breakfast area and family room. One of my clients had recently returned from a medical conference in Florence and had fallen in love with the patina and palette of this beautiful Italian city. At her request, I incorporated in the kitchen the colours and architectural shapes of the photographs she took on her trip and carried this palette and design throughout the main floor.
