Anthropologie love…

…if there was a place I could live it would be in an Anthropologie store I think, and for sure if I ever had my own retail store Anthro would be one of my inspirations.  From the clothes to the home decor elements and funky design I just love it!  I did a FB post yesterday announcing that I’m tired of painting variations of French Linen, Paris Grey, etc. I love these colors and they are great neutrals BUT after a while I’m just bored!

This is the hardest thing about painting furniture to sell I think.  You never really know what people might want so many times you stick with a neutral color but after a while you need to get funky! I ordered these two amazing custom colors from Barb at Knack Studios.  The colors are called Esme Green and Wyatt Gray .  Barb has an amazing studio in N.C. and her work is so fun!  She has her own book coming out and I can just see it being in Anthro stores all over.  If you love color and funky design you must check out Knack!

I had this amazing piece that I wanted to do something really interesting with so I chose to use the Esme Green from Barb and just love how it turned out.  I just put this in the shop in Falls Church if you are interested.

  1. the shape of that piece is AWESOME! And I do love the green, too….and girl, you are preachin’ to the choir! I always have the same dilemma…paint what will sell quickly, or paint what my heart desires and hope for the best! Sometimes it works out, sometimes….well, not so much :0)
