Duck egg blue
Duck egg blue... I think it is my favourite colour right now. Just take a look at my header :-)
I am desperate to paint something duck egg blue. I know, why not a house, I hear you say??
We own a rental property that we are planning on selling. Internally it was originally painted a green colour, which at the time I loved. But that was over ten years ago. I did paint some of the rooms about 5 years ago, but was never really happy with the result.
I will post pictures of the house when I get access to it. Next week, I plan to go and have a look at what work needs to be done, so that I can get it up on the market as soon as possible. I haven't had a good look at the place for five years, hopefully I wont be too shocked.
This is a picture of the front of the house 5 years ago. Yeah not a great shot, because the point and shoot camera that cost us a small fortune, about 5 years ago, didn't have a zoom :-)
And a loverly picture of me, lounging on the couch, again about 5 years ago. This is just to show the colour of the wall, from memory this is a fairly true representation of the colour. That couch, by the way was a elcheapo couch hubby and I bought when we were first married. I didn't like it much then, you can probably tell by the look on my face.
Sadly I don't seem to have too many more pictures of the property.
I am not planning on painting the whole house duck egg blue, but rather the main lounge, laundry, and kitchen. These three areas get the main sunlight, and they have white built in cupboards with a grey laminate top. Don't screw up your nose, again from memory the grey laminate top looks very nice, just the wall colour I could never get to match.
Anyway on to the duck egg blue inspirations:
