Taupe on my mind.....



I adore taupe and are using a lot of it on our current project. It is such a great colour as it works well with so many other colours................


I adore mixing modern and old pieces, also pieces from different countries as you will soon find out......as I am mixing French and Indian furniture at Maison No. 20.

I especially love this photo, the floor tiles, the bed, candelabra, bed, chandelier..............all beautiful pieces.

  1. What a trio of gorgeousness Leanne! I'm in total agreement with you about taupe, you really can't go wrong, it's such a fab colour- especially with a touch of black thrown in. Wish I had a dollar for all the hours I've spent sitting on the floor, painting a metre of skirting & then shuffling along on my rear to do the next metre - MOTH always told me it kept me humble!

  7. Love your post of taupe. It always looks so wonderful and restful.
    The lounge and bedroom photos you have shared are just gorgeous.

    Good luck with your painting of the skirting boards ~ always lovely to have that job finished with.

  10. What beautiful images - the bedroom is my favorite. I love the soothing neutrality of taupe, and I like to have color accents in the art and pillows - I always say it is so I can change the color palette easily, but I seem to have settled into a favorite color palette (greens and blues) and have not changed it for years!
