How to paint lime wash with Pure and Original Paint

We recently released a new collection of home goods in partnership with interior designer, Meta Coleman, and today she’s sharing a peek into her new main floor. Meta’s home is constantly evolving stylistically as she grows and I love seeing the process into how she brings it altogether. She gathers inspiration from her favorite artists and travels to create a truly one of a kind home.

Today she’s going into detail about the new colors in her house in partnership with Pure and Original Paint, her lime wash company of choice. Lime wash has the most lovely texture and it’s been something she’s been experimenting with the last couple of years. I’m excited to let you in on this technique with you!  – Brittany

DIY rainbow pom

St. Patrick’s Day means many things but around here it means EVEN MORE RAINBOWS than normal–and we already live in a rainbow-filled world. We’ve been spotting lots of motif-themed poms and thought it would be fun to try it out our own DIY rainbow pom. It’s just like normal pom-making but with some layering and cutting involved. It’s much simpler than you might expect! We added on some solid colored poms to create a tassel. Together they’d be great to hang on a bag to get your festive green in.

Limited edition home goods with Meta Coleman

Meta Coleman for The House That Lars Built

You guys! We’ve teamed up with interior designer and stylist, Meta Coleman, on an exclusive limited edition line of beautifully curated home goods new to the shop starting now and while supplies last.

Meta is one of my dearest friends (and Jasper’s self-appointed godmother ;)–ha!) and it’s a dream to team up because she’s absolutely passionate about anything related to the home and how to personalize it to your tastes, background, and current obsessions. She is always one to push the boundaries and help you to look at how YOU see your own home and how you can make it different than any one else’s. Read on →

March book club: A Big Important Art Book

Hi readers! March brings us to the start of spring (hooray!), but also a certain day we’d love to mention: International Women’s Day, which is March 8th. To celebrate the women around this world, we chose a book that does just that—A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women!) by Danielle Krysa. Creator of The Jealous Curator blog, Krysa is an author extraordinaire and talented artist herself. In this book, she shares the profiles of more than 45 female artists from around the world, giving us fabulous ideas on how WE can become artists as well! Depending on how long you’ve been reading with Lars Book Club, you might know that Danielle Krysa is a much-loved author here. We’ve read Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk a couple years ago, and we’re happy to feature another of her books this month! Follow along @larsbookclub and stay tuned for artwork later this month. Enjoy!

Head over to @LarsBookClub to enter to win a copy of the book in our giveaway!
