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..

Decorating With Navy Furniture.

Navy blue furniture is having a moment.

I recently painted a few pieces using Autentico’s Sailors Blue and needless to say they didn’t hang around for long.

Here are said pieces:

Navy furniture isn’t just for preppy or nautical themed rooms, it lends a sophisticated edge to a room and is compatible with so many colours ranging from salmon to chartreuse.

I am a huge fan of this colour and wouldn’t hesitate to use it in any room.

Here are some more decorating ideas:

Wednesday Wish List – Equestrian Decor

In the last couple of years I have re-visited my love of horses and been bitten by the bug big time.

So much so the equestrian style is slowly creeping its way into my home.

Where better to shop than Ralph Lauren and at the other end of the spectrum, Zara Home.

My eyes are telling me it’s time for some new specs.

Could do with a glasses stylist to give me a helping hand…

Latest Painting Projects

It was a busy old week last week here at Sally White Designs!

At the beginning of the week I painted a beautiful set of fitted wardrobes for a customer who wanted a French style feel to her dressing room. I opted for an Autentico paint colour in White Pepper, which is a lovely soft mushroom colour. Firstly I painted Autentico’s Corfu White underneath the areas I was planning on distressing so that hints of white would peek through the White Pepper. I finished them with a clear and dark wax to create an aged look and they look fabulous-photos to follow!

During the rest of the week I managed to finish a few pieces such as this gorgeous wardrobe! Edwardian with a deep drawer in the bottom, hanging rail and several hooks that run along the back piece.

I chose a really pretty Autentico colour called Polar Blue – a true ice blue that looks fabulous when distressed as the dark mahogany wood contrasts with the blue. My favourite colour at the moment.

I have to apologise for my photography skills in advance. Am working on it…

I also finished this lovely display cabinet which is just fab! A rather glamorous piece.

Hand painted in Annie Sloan’s Old White and then the back piece is wallpapered using the most gorgeous Ralph Lauren wallpaper called Nature Study Toile in a pretty pink colour.

I also replaced the glass shelves with mirrored ones, a lovely detail when displaying glass bottles.

Another piece to show you is a really sweet chest of drawers. Painted in Autentico’s Corfu White and a lovely shade of green on the inside of the drawers called Poetic. distressed and waxed finish.

I then wallpapered the front of the drawers using a gorgeous Zoffany wallpaper from the Gustavus range called Sophia in mint and added some pretty peach glass knobs.

Such a sweet piece!

If you are interested in any of these pieces please contact me and I can forward further details to you.
