INSPIRATION (the Mona Lisa)
March 13, 2015
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Mona Lisa in the form of a kitchen… or a living room, or anywhere else you might want to employ this moody palette. Everyone knows I’m wild for a white kitchen, but sometimes you just gotta go a different way. I respond well to the colors and textures in this kitchen especially if it’s done well and in the right house. Inspiration can come from a sea shell, the side of a barn, an open field and yes… a painting.
This room (below) by Tom Filicia is also a match. The color is distributed very differently, consider this when using an inspiration for your decor… You do not have to use the same amount of pigment or color when designing your space, whites and neutrals can mix in to lighten the look.
… oh, and I love the creative way the paint chips were used to make modern day versions of the classic!
