Blue Eyes

Blue and white really is a timeless classic. So calming and serene. I remember as a child admiring my aunt's collection of blue and white Willow and Wedgewood dishes. Blue and white is so versatile, it lends itself to the the most casual of beachside settings, to the most formal of sitting rooms. With the moody blues and bright whites of Greece and the old toiles of France, blue and white really is a popular colour scheme the world over.

I have a set of oars, the same as the ones that are above the windows. They used to live in the Southport Surf Club on the Gold Coast. Currently they are leaning against the wall and I really want to hang them. I live across the creek from a marine shop that sells boats and marine accessories, so I really must take a walk across the bridge and see if they have something handsome I could use!
