A little Greek inspiration

I'm afraid I've neglected my blog somewhat over the last few weeks. I've just come back from a lovely holiday in Greece catching the last of the summer sun. Today I just thought I'd share a few of the things that caught my eye.

I love the unusual packaging of this chewing gum with its strong colours and geometric patterns.

And I really like the simplicity of the distressed metal bus stop with the cut-out bus detail, the subtle colours of the stone panels top right, and the shape and vivid red of this old fire hydrant.

I like the look of distressed paintwork and worn surfaces generally, and was drawn to the lovely textures and colours of this turquoise door and wooden panelling. And these colourful tables and chairs are just very cheerful and fun, I think they may inspire a future colour palette.
I hope you saw something you liked in my odd little selection of images!
