i have lived here 44 years but am californian for 22, and i use suede finishes with thickest brush conducting in circular movements (usually to classical music) with whites, blues (avatar), and orange-reds. the woodwork on the door and window trims is an enamel grey. the timbers in my kitchen are all are australian red cedar, however, i have antique american (ny) oak, walnut (australian), as furniture and cypress pine on the floor.
I use yellow green transparent curtains and 2 other kinds of lime green curtains in the red-orange dining room (di vinci red suede) and the other rooms of kitchen, entrance hall, are lead light windows. my bedroom is white with lace curtains and heavy white curtains on each side of big windows, my husbands bedroom is a golden yellow on the walls, cedar furniture, and royal deep red curtains which is what he likes. the other bedrooms are deep purple and purple haze (light); one bathroom is cream with deep red accents. the other is pressed white metal and white suede with cedar trims. the cedar wood is not american but a deep reddish/orange brown with variations of golden colors. the decorator suggested two colors for this in the kitchen: a mauve called smokey taupe and pinkstone or the upper reaches like ceiling. and it works well. I was in an old convent in yass, nsw where the colors surrounding the cedar were very much mauve and pinkish and it harmonised so well inside. (i was only there for 5 minutes). otherwise, the cootamundra, nsw courthouse has an excellent example of cedar with lead lights. the windows are panes (9" x 14") of assorted autumn colors which all add the light onto the cedar. It is a really lovely way to easily handle light onto wood. we carried our dining room colors outside and sueded the patio walls with di vince red (which is orange) and added palms and ferns in water-well pots. we also have an avatar blue suede garden enclosed in another area which adjoins the purple haze bedroom. and we used yellow green gardenia plants there..the smell is lovely. we put in some padded chairs and a coffee table. then for the centre of the garden on which our dining room looks out of is a five metre red coral japanese maple tree with an assortment of hellebores circled underneath. (there is piped music too).
the tree needs very cold winters, like a frost, in order to change its bark red in winter. otherwise it has green and apricot leaves. the entrance hall and hallway are in a blue, the woodwork is enamel grey. the lead lights are many..it's like an octagon. it is stong internal color but i find with lead light windows it works well. it is an old house, architect designed by the way. some ceilings are old lace white/cream. others are timber, such as in the hallways and my white bedroom. the lounge room is white/cream alpaca carpet, leather cream lounge with walnut trims and a curved style, cream sheers, drapes, cream on upper walls, and on lower walls is a pink called Bronco. it is an old rose color. it also was chosen by a decorator. this goes well with the upper walls which are a cream with green, yellow in it. of course everyone has a coffee table, ours is walnut, and also for the black glass tv stuff. the black works well with the australian cedar too. the kitchen tiles are a deep teal which look black in the daytime if the sun isn't on them, but light up in teal green with the under shelves lights on them. the fireplace is in these tiles too and it is lit up by the sun at certain times of the year. it reminds me of an aquarium at night. the lead light shelves above the counters are also lit up at night. we have three black cast iron pillar posts outside which light up the garden, plus a 1000 watt light which lights up the centre tree at night.

I'll go with almost anything that allows a movement of air in the backyard. My skin crawls every time I see a colorbond fence ( a blight on the suburban Australian landscape), and think how hot & stifling those yards generally are. The photos of the rusted steel and corrugated iron fencing say the same thing to me, and they would have to be very hardy plants as they'd be constantly baked. Great photos on all examples

We custom designed this redwood and metal fence for a rustic-industrial renovation in Oakland, CA. It provides visual interest and security, with a nod to the former commercial natural of the building (we converted it from commercial space to residential in an up-and-coming neighborhood).
