Inspiration From The Houses of Veranda and Best Dressed Walls
I just received my copy of The Houses of VERANDA by Lisa Newsom. The book is divided into sections by style and the first section on Classic rooms is filled with great ideas for today’s interpretation of Classical which she describes as “relevant for today – soulful, sophisticated and, above all, comfortable”.
Had to show this ‘Best Dressed Wall’ without the words. Just splendid. Love the aged look of these panels. Anyone have experience with using Annie Sloan Chalk paint for walls? I am creating new finishes for our ornament and wall panels using Annie Sloan paints. We are really excited about diversifying our finishes to include patinas and distressed finishes. Will definitely include this one.
The color on the above panels and these panels is one of my favorite colors. Just lovely, soft and sophisticated.
Another great room.
You won’t be sorry ordering this book for your library. The pictures are large and the styles diverse.
Our Give Away ends on Friday so go to Beaux-Artes and Like us and pick out the panel and finish you want and come back to the blog and tell me about it.
