I have had the cabinet sitting there all year, and only just decided last Saturday to paint the back of it. I was going to repaint the room an aqua or beige, but decided a quicker and easier way of transforming the space and introducing colour was just to do the cabinet. It took half an hour and looks a million bucks!
The paint colour is Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue.
The giant fish oil painting is by Vanessa Brown which we bought while living in Bowral a few years ago. The lamp is from VT Interiors. The curtains I had custom made from a fabric I found locally. The window is 4m long so there's 20m of fabric in them.

BTW, I still have absolutely now idea how to use my new DSLR camera. I am just swapping lenses and hoping for the best, but it keeps whizzing and whirring and flipping out on me and I am anxious to do a course to work how what the heck I'm doing with it. So hopefully my photos will improve dramatically when I can do more than just turn it on!
