My name is Cynthia and I love interior design, architecture, antiques, all things vintage, all things British (a tried and true Anglophile), a love of things that are time worn and hold secrets of days gone by. I love animals and try to respect their place in our world. I enjoying talking about the most beautiful places in the world, some exotic, some in our own neck of the woods. I love family and friends, music and movies. And most importantly, I love talking about these things with a daily dose of humor because I love to laugh and we all deserve to. So come on...let's go for a stroll.

Robin's Egg Blue - How I Love You

Shed from home in Wiltshire England - What a wonderful door

What color represents spring time more than robin's egg blue? It just a happy color that represents a re-awakening...of nature, in particular, crisp mornings, warm days, birds singing and grass turning green.  It is such a romantic color.  How can you not be happy when in its presence?  It has certainly experienced a rise in popularity in home decor, popular both inside and out...in paint, furnishings, accessories and outside by our pools, in our gardens and in our outdoor rooms.  I have featured some of my favorite photographs gathered from various blogs, websites and magazines.  I don't have references on some so please forgive if I didn't credit you properly and feel free to comment if you know the source.  Some of the photos feature a little bit of a variation on the color robin's egg -- love is indeed blue.  Enjoy

Shades of Robin's Egg on the sofa and in the paintings - I love the "happenstance" look of this room -
 designed but not "decorated"

A robin's egg sky in Wiltshire England - this house still reigns as one of my all time favorites and can be found
 on one of my previous blogs - drool worthy

And last but never least, my daughter's god sister, McKenna Smith Echols, in her  beautiful bed featuring her beautiful bedding in robin's egg blue, pink and white - she is beautiful
