Design, Colour And Texture … Getting Up Close.

The date was October 2012, the place was the tiny village of Kissos, Greece, the reason was because it was the half term school holiday and because our in-laws who have a holiday home on the Pelion peninsular had been telling us for years how amazing this area of Greece was.

So have every other friend and relative who’s visited here before us.

They were not wrong.

This area of Greece is a long long way from towering apartment blocks and streets jam packed with all night clubs and bars, and long may it continue to be so.

This is magical beautiful original Greece, and the magic once again is in the detail.

This is architecture of the sort I adore, there is care, attention and detail that goes far further than the piecing of the structure together so that it stands up.  The doors, the windows, even the grave stones are decorated. You know me by now, I adore detail….  so here it is, the ornamentation, the close-up in all of it’s designs, colours and textures.
