Dorothea Michel, Byron Bay
I’ve got the feeling that the colour of Byron Bay is fading away. It seems like every house that is getting newly painted is painted in a not-colour! From light grey over muddy grey to nearly black.
Combined with a cold, modern architecture, you only have to look at such a house and you get depressed. Sure, it might be only a fashion, but that fashion will stay for the next 20 years. And every week there is another house, fence or wall newly painted in these asking-for-Prozac colours.
It looks to me that Byron is slowly but surely turning into Mordor!
