Happy Australia day, my friends! For those who don’t live in Australia, a bit of additional information: today is the Australia day and it is a public holiday. We will have 3 days off, which is very pleasant given that weather is so nice and enjoyable at the moment:) This day is celebrated annually on 26th of January. The dated commemorates the arrival of the first fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 an the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia (thank you, Wikipedia!).
I had an idea to start doing themed posts for some time now. Almost every day I discover some new sources of inspiration, surf through really nice (sometimes just great!) interior design material and get acquianted with the work of very talented designers and artists. I was thinking to have at least one post per month with interior designs I came across and at least one post introducing designers or artists and their works. I thought that themes (colours, functionality, etc) would to keep it interesting.
So, today is the great day to start doing it:) The theme is quite obvious – Australia Day with green and gold being the main colour palette, Australia’s official national colours. [It’s actually yellow, not gold. I am not sure why it’s been called “gold”..] These were formally established in a proclamation by the Governor-General in April 1984 and it is widely believed that the colours were chosen because they are the dominant colours of Australia’s floral emblem, Acacia pycnantha:
Enough of excursus to the history, enjoy green and yellow interiors I chose for today:
Happy Australia day! To my Australian friends: enjoy whether, beer, beach and warm company of your friends and families during this long weekend!
