Real life inspiration: green & grey

At the end of last week we attended a ceremony in Edinburgh at the Signet Library. I love these old stately buildings with their (wait for it) super tall ceilings, huge windows, feeling of space and bold colours.

This grey is what I would love to achieve at Auchenard:

I sat listening to the speakers and contemplated this beautiful ceiling. I am a fan of green and I wish I had the name of this beauty:

Ok so a Renaissance style scene may be a little bit out of reach but isn’t it just beautiful?

The gold detail really tied everything together.

What about you – seen any beautiful inspiration in real life. Houzz and Pinterest have so much stuff to look at but seeing it in person is really something else.
