Moody blues

I’ve been hearing non-stop about the crazy weather back home over the last couple of weeks (which, incidentally, had better not thwart my family from getting over here tomorrow or there will be Big Trouble) and am, I have to admit, pretty gutted to be missing the first 100% sure-to-be White Christmas in about the last 3000 years, but I have to say we’ve also been having our own mini freeze-wave here in Cayman.  It has been a pain having to consider wearing another layer over the sundress when going out (ha, sorry!) but one really awesome side effect is the fantastic surf that’s been loitering around on Seven Mile Beach thanks to a few nor’westers blowing in.
So we went out surfing last week on Tuesday evening in some pretty massive waves (I’m still learning and was a smidge out of my depth – pun not intended) and my upper-body-strength-of-a-mouse meant that I was getting a bit pooped and starting to vaguely worry about getting back into the beach, so I turned to face the shore and suddenly got this crazy snapshot of an incredible range of moody blue-greys in the sky and sea, topped off by the bright white and really light aqua colour of the waves breaking, and with the dark taupe sandy colour of the beach in the background – it was pretty awesome actually.  So anyway, this got me pondering a scheme for a master bedroom.  I’m thinking a luxurious dark wood four poster bed with textiles and cushions galore in a range of grey-blues/aqua and a separate fireside seating area with a chandy and gorgeous artwork.  Let me know what you think!
