Martha Stewart has had her Colors paint collection for awhile, but it was only recently that I discovered that they were available at Lowes. The collection is from Valspar, and sold through Lowes. I happened to be needing some touch up paint, and saw these little inspiration cards at the bottom of the swatch wall. I am in love with the way they combined everything in the image above. The graphic-ness of Dutch blue wall stripe (they call the color “blue ticking”) combined with the darker warm blue and grey accent pillows on the chocolate brown bedding… the black side table, vase… and the unexpected yellow pop from the artwork and the burlap fabric of the lampshade makes the whole thing feel completely fresh and modern.
I also love this office area they showed, with the classic black and white motif. If only my office could be so organized and minimal. (sigh)… but then, I have this theory that if your office is tooo clean, then that means you’re not really doing any work… (which would mean I’m working waaay to hard, hehe)Next time you are at a Lowes, definitely hit up the paint swatch wall and look for these cards- the rooms shown range in styles, but all have that beautiful signature “Martha” look, and they give the paint colors used on the back. (and they’re free!)
The website has some great design galleries to peruse too if you’re looking for more inspiration… (or for more procrastination, hehe)
