Your creative juices were flowing very well with this selective colour treatment Ginnie... the B&W surroundings make the colours inside just pop!!!....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. You know me and selective coloring. grin
very effective. really draws the attention in.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ayush. Can you imagine having your office there?

Very good-looking carpet on the floor, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ray...I thought so, too. Can you imagine working in that office?!
Creativity really does bring colour to the lives of us all. > A delightful image Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. What would we do without it!
That's some amazing filter on that house.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. And it was a gorgeous day, which helped! smile
Beautiful colors and comp Ginnie!! Love this!
(We've just watched Shaun White biff the 1/2 pipe... Ugh!)
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, dear Elizabeth. I'm glad to see you're able to watch some of the Games! smile It wasn't Shaun's year to win another Gold/medal, apparently. But he was most gracious in defeat, I thought.
I want that rug!
Ginnie Hart: My dad had several of these in our house when I was growing up, Michael, so I was always attracted to them.

You did a great job with your creativity. It was a great scene in that greenhouse.
I bet this is how our King and Queen feel, living in a glass house..
Wonderful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. Good point about your King and Queen!!! Can you imagine working in an office like this? smile
You,ve done a great job.....its got me thinking smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sane. Thinking is usually good. smile

You could make a really good office with a glasshouse like this in the garden
Ginnie Hart: Wouldn't that be just delightful, Lisl. You could sit there and actually watch your plants grow. smile

I'd want to grow tomatoes in here!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chris, alongside of Astrid's many orchids and hyacinths. smile

wow what a room
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Adrian. Can you imagine having your office out there?!
A carpeted greenhouse.....just needs the tomato plants
Ginnie Hart: You and Chris are on the same page today, Mr. Bill. smile

I thought you didn't visit museums - but this is really worth a visit - I in particular love the wonderful oriental carpets -and I admire your selective colouring!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You got me, Philine. Well, in this case, we were given free tickets and couldn't refuse. It was well worth the excursion that day! smile Bedankt.

A luxury glasshouse! Fine b/w & color combination.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, HF. Can you imagine having an office there?! smile

Which good idea to use a greenhouse to make a place of life. I would borrow well the beautiful and big carpet, it would be very well at my home. LOL!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it just idyllic, Marie! I think one could become very creative in such a place! smile Merci.
It's warm inside smile Great use of the selective colouring, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Warm and cozy, Martin. Thank you. smile

Very nice to look at but perhaps a little chilly in Winter and warm in Summer Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It would be fun to find out, Chad, especially since it hasn't really been winter yet here in Dutchland. A little heater would heat it up nicely, I should think? smile

I would love this for studio space. Love your treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. I can picture you out there, creating up a storm. smile

Now there is a much better use for a glass house then fiddling around trying to grow tomatoes.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! My sentiment exactly, Alan. grin

The one gust house I stayed in Ireland had as much glass as this, posing as a breakfast room. A quick shower while I was having breakfast, made it quite interesting. Well worked picture.
Ginnie Hart: You've just reminded me of the saying, Louis, that he who lives in a glass house must not throw stones. HA! Thanks.

A great use for a greenhouse, Ginnie. Love the carpet.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline. Can you imagine something like that in your backyard?! smile

I love this. I would take any room with those carpets, that table and the light. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have a study like this? But what would I do when I need a nap? smile
Ginnie Hart: I actually thought of you when I first saw this, Ruth...you and your atelier, even though yours is different. Look at how much space is there. You could easily figure out a hammock or beanbag for a nap! smile
I so need a study like this!
Warm like a conservatory smile
Ginnie Hart: It looks so cozy and inviting, LC, doesn't it! smile

Surprising combo of b/w and color! Draws you in.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bonnie. It really grabbed my attention...so cozy and inviting.
Damn it all, I'm going to have to get up earlier in the mornings, the Phillips clan have pinched my comment today!!!! Love the rug and your popping is great, as usual.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Thanks, Brian.
Very good-looking house, very nice shot! Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Roland. It looks very cozy and inviting.
Love the rich warm colours they've used to decorate it, Ginnie; makes it feel nice & cozy even with all that surrounding glass. Another one of your great selective colouring images.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, as always, Beverly. Thank you.
A colourful picture Ginnie! could do with that break right now... with all the wet weather!
Ginnie Hart: Just come on in and relax for awhile, Ronky! smile Thanks.
sort of a time capsule...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I think so, JC. Thanks.
I immediately thought of Astrid when this capture appeared! She would love having this attached to the apartment, ha ha! Beautifully done!
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Robin. Wouldn't that be something to have in your backyard! smile Thanks.
Very nice and attractive Ginnie! Well done indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. Merci.

Mine certainly would sitting in that place smile
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Cherry. It feels so cozy and elegant. smile
Not exactly designed to deter voyeurism, is it?
Ginnie Hart: Some people are very trusting, it seems, Tom?!

My fantasy ran wild while imagining what it could be like to have such a sanctuary in my garden! Every season would have a treat in store. smile
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Petra! On a sunny day, you wouldn't even need a heater in the winter! smile

life in the countryside, nice in a greenhouse, but I do jy grow tomatoes!
Well done, this is your house?
Ginnie Hart: This is a greenhouse in the backyard of the Glass Museum in nearby Leerdam, NL, Pat. Can you imagine having an office outside like that?! smile

Hihi, I do not know you well enough to know if you would like to have a good time in this place! - And also knowing a young Dutch floklorique side, I tell me everything is possible! - I've been four days last summer in Amsterdam! my beautiful brother has lived three years next to den Hague ( la Haye) and I'd often (every three months) - I love holland - Have a nice week
Ginnie Hart: I have lived in Dutchland now for 4 years, Pat, as an American married to my Dutch wife, and absolutely love it! Amsterdam is delightful but isn't the real Holland, of course. You'd love getting out into the countryside and seeing the small towns. What a wonderful country and people.
LOL what a great and creative idea to use a greenhouse.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too! Thanks for stopping by and commenting here.
