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.

February Book Club: Umbrellas of Cherbourg poster and bookmark

Hello readers! Did you watch The Umbrellas of Cherbourg? How did you like watching and discussing a movie, for a change? Although we do love books, we hope it was a fun deviation from the “norm”. If you liked it, maybe we’ll do it again! We’ve got some questions below for you, some of which we may have asked or will chat about on Instagram—have you been following along? There are just so many colorful images to share!
Our fantastic featured illustrator this month is Patti Blau who designed a gorgeous printable poster and bookmark to go along with the movie. Yes, we know you don’t necessarily need a bookmark for a movie, BUT we kept with tradition. You’ll be learning more a Patti in an interview on Thursday, but for now, enjoy her beautiful artwork.
