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 in the USA and Canada who love to paint furniture. Their photos are included, and their names can be found on the back of the corresponding pages. The USA and Canadian versions are a bit different, since the Canadian Notebook was added later.
I am thrilled to be self-published. And also especially proud to print the books in the USA and Canada by amazing printers.
