simply color: suzie mckig

by Lauren

As autumn approaches, I find myself drawn to forest greens, chocolate browns and golden yellows. These are colors of comfort. This image is from the home of Suzie McKig (of Twig & Fig). She painted the walls with lime wash, saffron then mango. The lime wash gives the wall delightful texture and character and fits in nicely with the “euro-village” style of her house. —Lauren
