Hooked on Friday

It’s Hooked on Friday over at Julia’s so here’s mine for this week.

When we moved into our house 5 years ago I covered the dark green and light orange walls with cream paint, lots and lots of Farrow and Ball White Tie and Slipper Satin.  Now I’m so bored!  Seriously I’m starting to need some colour in our house, the taking down of the Christmas tree has just made the place look dull and uninspiring.

This is the colour that is calling me – Duck Egg Blue!

It’s everywhere at the moment and I find myself checking it out in magazine and thinking how I can get it into the house on a budget.

We also have some dark wood furniture which I think would go with the colour.

All I need to do now is persuade my lovely husband that we need to re-paint 🙂

  1. Ooh, this duck egg blue color is gorgeous. I think you should do it because I want to see how it turns out!

    I know what you mean–I’ve been craving more color this winter, too.

    Thanks for joining my blog party, Liz. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  2. Love the colour and I was just trying to decide how to talk my husband into painting our kitchen/dining room this exact colour!!! :o) It will be a really big switch for us (the walls are currently brown – Nutmeg by Behr) but all of the trim is white so I think that I can pull it off. Excellent taste!! :o) Becki

  3. Good luck with convincing your husband to paint again. Isn’t it nice to be sure about the color? That takes away a lot of stress!

  4. So funny. I just posted about paint colour. This one is gorgeous. Love, love, love duck egg blue.

    PS Very jel about those Cath goodies found at TX.

    1. My magazine “habit” (dh calls it an addiction!) is something to behold 😉 But these days I’m trying to do more online reading as it’s cheaper.

      But I have pursuaded him that the colours great and I can try it in the dining room first – woo hoo!
