Last December we were invited by one of our dear friends to share one of her lifelong dreams - a beautiful home they can now call their very own which makes it really special. Shades of blue clearly dominates the house's facade and very interestingly integrated in its interiors. One website claims that the color blue can be strong and steadfast or light and friendly. We think it's spot on and our friend would concur.
She shares, "I had the chance to see the house in October for the first time. I was so thrilled I didn't know which part of the house I should take pictures of. It was bare then but I was raring to live in it especially when I saw my room."
The use of bricks to line her windows was brilliant. It provided a respite from the cerulean vibe.
Inside, the color cream and a cornice was used to separate the lower part of the wall.
Her kitchen speaks of abundance and happiness. Adding windows was a smart move as it allows more light in negating the use of unnecessary energy.
The receding ceiling gives an impression of more vertical space.

She adds, "Believe it or not, it's my first time to have my very own room. When I came for vacation last December, it was already furnished. It was on Christmas when it finally sunk in that this is finally our own. With the presence of Christmas trimmings, fare, gifts and family, it was just the perfect timing."
As its dominant color suggests, her house is definitely a gift from the sky.
