True colors

We have been discussing what colors to choose for weeks now. And now, finally, all the pieces of the puzzle has fallen into place. We were at Bauhaus for buying paint when Arianna by chance found a book about color trends of different styles and eras. We learned that typical for the Jugend/Art Nouveau style (or "Liberty tedesco" as the Italians call it) are rich pastel colors. For me who loves just about everything about the 80's this was a very pleasant surprise.

Jugend colors.
The funny thing is we were already on the right path. About one month ago I got the idea to base the color scheme on the colors of a stained glass window in the atrium of the house.
