I prefer to decorate with neutrals. I work with colour so much at the magazine (Annabelle forces me against my will most times!) I like to surround myself with a calm palette at home. Having said that, I glanced over at our messy kitchen this morning and saw that John had put an empty bottle of wine and a pot on the trusty Ikea stool, obviously needing a place to plonk them while he made dinner last night in our matchbox-sized kitchen. The casing on the neck of the bottle is the most divine orange – not garish or gaudy like orange can be – it's soft and complex. And it looked so perfect against the olive green of the bottle, our grey wall behind it and the dense black of the cast iron. I just know I'll use this combination again soon, somewhere. Thanks for the inspiration Kooyong.
