flag of Greece. There are few exceptions - but this interior bedroom window in green is one of them. It is built into a typical island house constructed out of stone and wood then covered with stucco and painted annually with a whitewash made out of crushed marble. As is common with this style of architecture, some elements of the underlying stone or wood structure remain visible - such as the recessed wood beam above the window which is not completely covered by stucco. The exterior scene is a common one - an olive tree!
