Colour of Summer // Grassy green

When I think of summer I think of sunshine and greenery. I think of warm afternoons lazing on freshly cut green grass under the cool, dappled shade of the trees. I picture looking up through the bright green of leaves made translucent by the intensity of the sunlight toward the stark and endless blue sky. This green of these summer days is so inherently calming, invigorating and revitalising – there’s not much to compare to it.

So this season I’m wandering through interiors that remind me of this state of being (which probably stems from laying under the trees as a small child, always outside and so easily content with the simple things).
