Yet another #inspirationboard for the same office interior in West #sussex . This time #cuckmereriver being my inspiration source. Beautiful and curvy riverbeds, the horizon, space. Neutral color palette with powder beige, toned green and deep blue. Accent comes in mostly as contrast. Play of light and shadow. Various textures. Soft and warm materials like wood in the spotlight. Creative furniture in breakout zone inspired by stones.
I’d dreamt of a wild swim in the Cuckmere Meanders for years. Clear salt water, brilliant blue skies, lush green Sussex meadows and magnificent, aching silence. The ‘world’s wisest woman’ psychologist Dorothy Rowe once said, ‘Depression is the gap between reality and expectation.’ My gap was typically sizeable this time. Because when I got to the meanders, yes it was dazzlingly beautiful, the sky was azure blue and the grass emerald green. Unfortunately the other two hundred or so day trippers thought so too. I’d have been the only person swimming and it would have been most amusing to see me wallowing like a stuck hippo in six inches of chalky stagnant water flavoured with sheep droppings. Eject fantasy. Mouth set grimly as I tackle the washing up. Wait for next ridiculous fantasy to come along #cuckmeremeanders#cuckmerehaven#cuckmere#cuckmerevalley#cuckmereriver#cuckmerehaven#sussex#sussexdowns#wildswimming#wildswim#england#riverswimming
