They’re here! The much-anticipated European colors will hit shelves this weekend at both shops, Serendipity & The West End Garage. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on these beautiful colors. I mixed up a few of them yesterday and couldn’t love them more. Here’s some feedback thus far… Arabesque is a soft, ballet pink. I have a bulky beat up secretary desk that I “earmarked” for this color. Yesterday I applied the first coat and can’t wait to work on this piece further. I am convinced this color doesn’t have to be girly with the addition of some antiquing wax. I’ll be sure to share the results here. Mora is very possibly my new favorite! The color is questionable. Is it silver gray? Is it blue green? Even a neutral? This one is a chameleon and changes with the light and surroundings. I painted a sample to consider for kitchen cabinets that I’m getting ready to work on. I think it leaves just the right pop without being in your face nor is it too quiet. I quickly mixed up Marzipan which true to its name is a creamy neutral. For me, this goes in the Ironstone/Linen category. Ironstone is by far our most popular seller but perhaps one can switch things up and try using Marzipan which is off white with a hint of yellow but not as yellow as Linen. I haven’t had a chance to experiment with the other 3 colors just yet but here they are, full of beautiful potential… Our next free milk paint demonstration is on Sunday at Serendipity in Doylestown at 1 pm. Please join us, even if you’ve come to a demo before. We’ll have the new European colors in stock and I’ll be mixing up samples for you to see! If you can’t make it on Sunday but would like to snag a new color, we are currently taking pre-sales online here.
