Cyclades in green

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

When it comes to the Cyclades, I keep having in my mind blues and whites (and, of course, the desaturated browns and grays of the harsh earth), but who doesn't (although they are definitely not just blue&white!). Well, I'm really attracted by these shots from houses in Santorini, Naxos and Mykonos where green color steals the show. Whether as a paint on the windows, doors and furniture or as nature elements, I feel these shades are a most welcoming alternative and totally suitable for  springtime (oh, Bougainvillea, here you are again, my love)!
