WHY DID I COMPILE THIS NOTEBOOK?
Choosing the perfect color when painting furniture can be extremely intimidating for many reasons. Color is so personal – it reflects our style in the clothing we wear, the cars we drive and in our home decor. And who wants to make a mistake? Repaint that piece of furniture? Choose another color? Spend more time and money?
Hence, here is a pretty little tool to help you collect inspiration as you travel through life.
The photographs you see on the front of each page are mostly mine, snapped on my travels through Europe and North Africa, at home, or in furniture and accessory showrooms. I have learned to see color combinations and patterns everywhere – a lovely flower, a bird, a plate of perfectly presented food in a restaurant. Especially in my own closet. Study the colors you love to wear, and I am willing to bet that you will like most of the same colors painted on a special piece of furniture.
Several of the furniture pieces within are my creations, but I really wanted to share the work of many friends, so their photos are included, and their names can be found on the back of the corresponding pages.
ON THE FRONT PAGES
Find gorgeous, inspiring photos from around the globe, organized by the color wheel, plus neutrals, white, grey, brown, black and metallics.
ON THE BACK PAGES
This is the area to play to your creative heart’s content. Clip, staple or tape ideas to jump start your painted furniture projects.
Extra blank pages in the back allow even more room to play and make painted color samples.
