The ocean has always been a source of calm for me. Creating a color palette that brought that feeling into a home was my number one goal. Oh, how I miss the days in California where I was living life on the beach…sigh. But that was then, and this is now. And hey, I have a lot to be grateful for here in Texas. Sure I gave up the beach but now I live in charming historic downtown McKinney. My neighborhood is full of colorful and unique homes, which makes it a different type of paradise.
Making It Work
Not only did I want to keep those thoughts of calm in mind, but I also wanted to create rich and vibrant colors. Initially, I began choosing colors that I felt would evoke the feelings of nature and work with a variety of styles. We all have different tastes/styles, and I took the time to find the right balance very seriously. My focus was on creating colors that worked well with everything from vintage to contemporary style furniture and homes. But I also kept trending colors in mind that would summon thoughts of spring and summer. Above all, maintaining an emphasis on fresh and calming colors. I believe I accomplished that with this color palette and am really happy with it.
Once I had my colors, I had them made in the One Hour Enamel and the Chalk Synthesis Paint, so that people could choose their favorite paint to work with. I’ve had a ton of positive response to the whole palette and a flurry of orders came in immediately! In fact, I actually had to set up pre-orders because I wasn’t expecting people to order so soon after I shared pics on my Facebook Page. I am humbled, and oh so thankful to everyone!
I will continue to add furniture pieces refinished by myself, my customers, and my local furniture artists, but here are a few samples of what I have so far…
You can find all of the colors in the One Hour Enamel & Chalk Synthesis Paint in Quart size in both of my store locations and 8oz (in Chalk only), Quarts, and Gallon sizing in both lines are available in my online shop.
