Color LOVE + Farrow and Ball= Happy Home

October 17th, 2012

SO I have know about Farrow and Ball paints for years,

but since they were not readily available I had not used any of their colors…

WELL NO MORE!

The Rue in Richmond, VA,  now sells Farrow and Ball paints and I am truly in LOVE.

I have slowly been re doing the upstairs in my home and have used these paints in each room and have to admit,

there is something about their premixed formula that has an amazing depth.

Their colors are INCREDIBLY livable.


If you live close to Richmond, please come hear Ann explain this company’s philosophy and learn something about

COLOR.

I have been to this and really enjoyed it.

It lasts about 40 minutes :)

OUTDOOR Porch Floor

October 5th, 2012

SO the covered porch…

one of my favorite hang out spots, especially when the seasons are changing.

Here are a few ideas to spruce them up a little and make them even more enjoyable!

Here I painted the floor for more interest and comfort.

for step by step photos…keep reading.

SO I decided to do the floor pattern long ways, found the center,

and started laying down the Sunny’s Self Adhesive Templates.

I continued the pattern with the templates, until I covered the whole porch.

So if you look at this picture, what is underneath the Sunny’s Template Design will stay the lighter gray.

I am painting the green color to go underneath the second smaller shape,  so it does not need to cover the whole design,

only where the shape will be. It makes more sense when you see the next photo.

In the photo what is underneath the small Sunny’s Shape will remain green.

The Dark gray will is painted on the remaining open space on the porch..it looks messy , but once it dries, you pull up each template,

which protected colors and shapes underneath, and the pattern is very cool!

VOILA!

I hope this inspires you to paint a porch floor.


The colors used are:

Farrow and Ball  Plummet Floor paint (lighter gray)

Farrow and Ball Folly Green floor paint (green)

Farrow and Ball Down Pipe (darker grey)

All Farrow and Ball Paints are available at

THE RUE

5813 Grove Avenue Richmond VA 23226

804-716-1742

the whole floor was primed with Farrow and Ball floor primer

These paints do not require a top coat!


enjoy ,

Gold & Silver Leaf- Walls, Ceilings and More…

January 19th, 2012

Silver Leaf  is well worth the investment…

it is a timeless amazingly beautiful treatment for walls,  & ceilings (if you can stand the pain!)


It can find a home comfortable in ANY environment-

think of it as Jewelry for your house.

Too much ruins the outfit, BUT we all can use a little BLING!


The Powder Room below needed some dressing up…

The silver leaf walls reflect the light from the window above.

This Dining Room ceiling (below) was silver leafed in order to reflect light, add elegance,  and age to a new home.

It is details like these that help newer homes have the charm of older ones.

Daylight with out any lights on…just stunning.

reflection of sconce light on the ceiling is awesome!!

View from down low looking up- the ceiling was first painted a mustard yellow,

but any color underneath the leafing looks cool!

The nice thing about a silver leafed ceiling is that it is timeless,

goes with any decor,  and is a true decorating investment.

what do you think?


Focus on kids rooms when moving….

October 3rd, 2011

Moving to a new home is stressful enough…much less throwing decorating into the mix,

and making each childs “new” room feel special-

Decorative painting is different , easy and can give the instant unique personality to a room in a jiffy.

Below we painted headboards on the wall and added monograms to make it personal…

for an adorable tomboy!

These can grow with her for years…and can also be painted right over when a change is needed!

PINK NURSERY


Serena and Lily Sunshine Mosaic Sheeting

our Hannah Stencil works great with this pattern, or the Hanna inside,

Inverted Hannah, and the Hannah Outside..options are endless..

Sunny’s and Serena and Lily work great together for kids rooms

I admire this client for focusing on her children’s rooms when she moved…

it showed them that their space was important which in turn made the move a little easier!

hope you are inspired!

Jolly Roger Bathroom for two cute boys!

July 14th, 2011

Jolly Rogers made this one day guest room bath,   a sophisticated  ” fun”,

for  two young boys….

who want to be closer to mom and dad.

The deep charcoal gray is a nice contrast to the blue tile and marble counter tops

and the “preppy” placement of stencils make them more fun and cool…. than scary.

When it is time for the boys to move upstairs to their bigger rooms away

from mom and dad-

the marble and tile will all stay , and the paint…

well …paint over it!
