I've been busy building 1/24th scale cottages the past couple of weeks. I've always wanted to try pastel colours for my cottage walls but never quite been brave enough - pink is an awkward colour to work with and can turn out looking so sickly or too Barbie. I decided to have a go and paired a pale blue with a pale pink and I was really pleased with how they turned out. They remind of seaside cottages in Aberaeron where we used to go on holiday. I put all my cottages together to make a street (apologies for the poor quality photo - it was such a dark and dismal day when I took it the light was dreadful). This is how I always think of my cottages when I'm building them - as part of a seaside street!
