Introducing Cobalt Blue Into Your Home.

I recently bought a new tote handbag in cobalt blue leather and it works with literally almost everything I wear, particularly white and tan.

(Incidentally it’s by Orciani, fabulous soft leather and not crazy prices).

Anyway it got me thinking about using cobalt blue paint on a piece of furniture and how it would sit within the home.

I came to the conclusion that I think it would sit pretty well and would add some wow factor to your space.

Previously I’d associated the colour with somewhere hot and glamorous like Santorini or Ibiza, with white washed walls and Ikat rugs but actually I think it sits just as well in a modern or traditional home.

My favourite piece is this bureau by Ralph Lauren below, hoping to emulate this look very soon..

Latest Painting Project – Rustic Pine Kitchen Table.

I saw this pine kitchen table and thought rustic, heavily distressed and petrol blue.

Well, petrol blue is the name I’ve given to this bespoke paint colour I mixed.

It’s a combination of blue and black paint to create this lovely petrol/ink blue.

Heavily distressed and finished with coats of clear and dark wax.

Currently For Sale: £225.00
