Beautiful Paloma and all the things you can paint
This week our colour board showcases 2 things:
1: Paloma, a stunning soft and restful understated colour, some would even say a neutral . It is often missed on the Vintro Colour Chart but is a lovely elegant and understated colour and really does deserve the spotlight shone on it . Paloma is a beautiful grey with a hint of purple it's a gentle colour that sways beautifully when placed in different environments as to whether it appears more grey or more taupe or purple, it has the ability to tone in with it's surrounding environment elegantly and effortlessly. Paloma is also a great base colour for a Vintro coloured wax a versatile base that will tone in and adjust beautifully underneath a coloured wax of your choice. This soft classical colour was inspired by the works of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso who included ‘La Paloma’ (pigeon/dove) in many of his works such as ‘Child Holding a Dove’.
2: See Things Differently : Vintro Chalk Paints rich multi pigmented colours has an amazing adhering quality allowing you to paint fabric, ceramics, terracotta, glass, metal , varnished woods, veneers and so much more all without sanding or priming. From an interior design point of view this opens up the scope to so many creative things when it comes to designing your interior space and having the freedom of colour and not just colour but colour with ease. Paint your glass vase in Paloma and place it across the room from your newly painted Paloma Sideboard allowing a clever flow and connection of colour.
People often fear colour or something outside of the norm aka anything outside of the safe "White, Black and Grey" a part of that fear stems around the fallacy that it be be hard to dress around "colour" find decor to match or tone in with...However if you are able to paint pretty much anything with ease then it really does open up the idea of how you can create your space with the freedom of stunning Vintro colours.
