Here is the "summer layout" of the living/dining room:
As you can see, the entry door - from the balcony - is in the living room. The dining table is close to the kitchen island and the couch is close to the window to enjoy summer light.
Since my stove had to be installed between the kitchen and the living room, I had to move the couch closer to it. Moving things aroung, I decided to paint the walls: back to white! Yellow is now only used around the door and the window.
My summer colour palette was "beach inspired", so white, blue and turquoise in various shades. I live on a mountain but I would like to live by the sea, in a white house with view (but never mind).
White walls help me when I add more colours to the palette. I believe that the "blue/white" is a summer palette, whereas in winter I prefer to shift to warmer shades of colours.
Obviously, work is always in progress, mainly as concerns home decor. But I can wait for the good inspiration.
