It’s all about color today. Strong colors. Can you see any of these colors in your home? Get your eyes use to Raisin Torte; it’s like the color of the candy, Boston Baked Beans. I’m starting to see that color appearing in different fashion blogs, which means it will show up in home fashions down the line. Kathy, from Hirshfield’s Design Resource, had a customer use that color just yesterday. Okay, it might take two years to reach Minnesota, but it’s coming.
As soon as the angels go back to school, are there any paint projects you want to start? Right now I’m finishing the touch up in my newly painted family room, and still pondering the interior barn door idea. And I want to get started painting a Union Jack flag, on canvas, to hang on the side of the shed. I can’t get this pink flag out of my mind. We’ll see.
Hirshfield’s Labor Day paint sale starts next week, so keep us in mind when it’s time to start (or finish) your painting projects.
If the Venetian plasters piqued your curiosity, check out The Plaster Center in Minneapolis. Fun, fun colors, and many variations of the plaster look.
May the force be with you, until school starts.
