A Time to Paint

Hi Everyone!!! Oh how the weekend flies! I have no idea how Monday came around so fast! Last week, thanks to The Washington Post’s Home Section (via twitter), I came across Elle Decor’s Trend Alert on Paint Spatter. The WP Home section posed a question:  Do you like it? My quick answer was yes.

I was filled with so much joy when I saw Kelly Wearstler’s custom wallpaper for Porter Teleo I squealed!! That elation was soon followed by more upon seeing these beautiful Paint by Number dessert plates by Anthropologie in there latest catalog. They are $12 dollars each so I may have to get a full set of the 6 different styles.


Last year I started collecting vintage Paint by Number Paintings so these beauties were right up my alley. If only you could really paint them… Oh well, I’ll just go here for that!

In my 140 character minimum on twitter, I remarked that you need to have the right client to introduce paint spatter, crazy brushstrokes and the like. My lastest obsession does not mean that I have to force them on everyone (just those of you who read my blog).

Happy Monday!

What do you think of the Paint Trend?
