About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Don't paint the wall. It's gorgeous, btw.

John

Very cute. I love your house by the way! At least what I can see of it.

pumpkins grow on a long prickly vine and take up a lot of room.But well worth the effort.better in an allotment or spare ground.I was once asked ny a lady from Ulster what they taste like my best description was a cross of carrot and potatoe mashed together.They are great in a roast or make fab soup.Just add a potatoe and an onion to them and boil.when cooked blitz them and serve with a dollop of sour cream and crusty bread
ENJOY!

I would try using reclaimed wood to make a sort of wall cover-something that could be used to put wall hangers on. Or even recycled doors, in all manner of colors!

Fiona

Leave the wall. Paint the chairs and gate.

Kat

nooooo don't paint the wall!! please,


Kat

Sue

No don't paint it. It's lovely

You're doing so well with the colors Luψυ, will certainly find something to suit!

Christiane / crissybaer

Hi,
what a lovely Idea - i would suggest to paint it in light blue - probably there is a tint near the effect of chalk a your place too -here in Germany it's a really new trend. Hope my english is understandable ....;-)))...
your Blog is great - stay happy with your Kids
Love

Love your post! Your wall would look lovely painted mediterainean blue! and then plant sunflowers against it, the to colours look great together!

tanya Stevens

Hi Lucy, have been following you for a while now, and have completed several of your blankets, your patterns are so easy to follow, I am doing the Ripple at the moment. Having just move from the UK to rural Spain, I enjoy your pictures of the English countryside and life in general. Now I am retired I have plenty of time to complete more of your projects. Good luck with the shop as well

Bea

Oh no Lucy please don't paint it! I know that what we say in no way can dictate what you do with it in the end but I've fallen in love with your whole back yard and the walls are part of the whole love affair, colour, exposed bricks and all. It's absolutely charming in its own way ♥ Love your blog as always!

Janette Surtees

Yes paint the wall!! But do a few large ish test patches out on pieces of wallpaper first and hang outside to observe how and when the light falls on the area. I personally would say no to blue as our British light intensity can't really match that of the Mediterranean to be honest . Try muted terracotta or cream or very pale green or pick a colour of one of your pots. Raised bed sounds good for permanent planting. Which way does the wall face Lucy? Good gardening Janette

Aucube - Manon Brochu

I am a Designer from Québec/Canada and I would love to see your wall in a darker shade...like BLACK! The colors of your flowers would stand out beside that neutral. Use a STAIN for the concrete only and leave the original red bricks exposed.
Good luck with the projet & Be Happy!

lottie bennington

i think that a pale lavender or baby blue would look brilliant. it would make your lovely flowers pop against the pale colour. you could also strip it down to the brick for a gorgeous backdrop. my favourite choice is probably the lavender. have a brilliant day. xx

Gale

Nooooo... don't paint it, leave it be. Let the splash of color be the flowers that adorn your pots.

patricia

Don't paint the wall the real charm is on the mosy green and the contrasting colors on the flower pots it is beautiful.

Lizy Tish

So fun! I'm torn between a nice blue wall and the natural wall with all your color accents. What about painting the pots?

Rural TN

I think your patio / garden has character. Leave the wall as is. How nice Little B is planting seeds. Hope he raises a HUGE pumpkin.

Loretta Little

Hi Lucy, I think a color you will love looking at, perhaps a warm color. A lattice could be attached to the wall creating a way to hang more flower pot or hang glass jars with little votive candles (the battery votive ones).
Good Luck,
Loretta

Don't paint it. It's lovely and rustic as it is. Painted white you will notice the crumbly bits more. How much light do you get there? A trellis with a honeysuckle climber would be lovely to screen your wall and give you something cheery to look at, vertically. Also, you sure you want a permanent planter? It will need to be 400-600 wide at least and will make your little courtyard smaller...
Love that your little b planted seeds and I hope that the mummy seeds grow nicely!

Vicki

I love it just as it is, don't paint it. Vicki

Sandy Guderyon

You can either paint it blue (great idea) OR choose colors for stripes, just like you chose colors for your poncho. I love the patio-it looks like the south of France.
