Drawing attention to a North West Facing Door

A focus of attention was placed upon our home office door that had/has too much emphasis on the elements of metal and water. Moss loved the cement around the back door and had created an illusion of a den like opening that was wet and damp.  The cement was dark and black, and the door and its frame was white.

Googling colours of the metal element, I noticed a picture of a cockatoo with a colour combination that was intriguing.  13230075_10208595600543476_4615805342960941552_n

 

 

Above are pictures of the North West facing door using these nature colours to draw attention to this doorway beginning the journey to  create balance in its presentation.

Simple paint in this area has created some fun and brings out joy when you are in this area!  Love nature’s colour models!
