Chocolate and Aquamarine

My Kitchen Window Buddy

This little fellow visits my kitchen window each morning and some afternoons for scraps of fresh meat I put on the sill for him. He is about the fourth generation of a kookaburra family that has visited us over the last 6 years. Each year, the parents bring their babies into the garden and show them how if you sit on the window sill, the nice lady gives you meat. I am in awe of the beautiful colour combination of feathers on their backs – chocolate and aquamarine. I started thinking about this combination and where else it occurs in nature.

I have always been drawn to this colour combination and marvel how nature always gets it right. No matter which shop I enter, I always end up standing in front of

There’s something comforting and relaxing when these colours are used in interiors. Although I do prefer more brown with a touch of blue

No matter which way you look at it chocolate and aquamarine is a great combination.

  1. That dining room is incredible! I love everything about it. I had never really thought about animals with this combination. The kookaburra is beautiful! Great post!
