Paros Window

On Paros, most Greek windows, doors, trim, fences and railings are painted either dark or light blue - the same blue as can be found in the 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!
