I am beginning to understand why artists who have spent time in the South of France have rhapsodised about the quality of light and the way it creates the unique colours here.

Blue sky and sea, sable sand and stones, terracotta roofs, rich but nuanced greens on plants and trees, a particular rusty bronze on the trunks of umbrella pines, slate grey and blue/jewel purple mountains.
You will recognise the colours and the names by which they are described, but these terms barely do justice to the crisp but layered shades we see all around us here. I can see that I am being subtly influenced by this unique palette when I choose fabrics, paints & styles for our new interiors.
