As the snow falls and the wind is well windy my thoughts of furniture fixing and painting are put on hold. :( It takes forever to heat up the garage thus leaving only a few hours to work. Before I know it its time to shut things down for the evening and the garage cools off very quickly making the paint drying time very short and not a good thing. But my thoughts are always thinking about colour and patterns which brings me to the question. Have you seen Pantone's Colour of the Year?
I have to say when I first saw this colour I was like.. meh. For furniture or clothing I'm wasn't a fan of this throwback to the eighties, slightly updated dusty rose colour.
You can check out Pantone's Site to see its grand introduction into the colour world. For me I still wasn't impressed.
Then came my Knitpicks Magazine and I began to see that ok maybe mixed with other colours that I might like it.
Then this showed up in my Pinterest feed and I rather like its old world charm appeal.
I'm still not 100% sold on the colour and I don't jump on the band wagon of new colour anyway when I pick paints or fabric. I go all artsy and let the project speak to me.
This was last years it didn't make the cut to appear into any of my projects. We shall see if I warm up to Marsala this year. :)
