I am so excited to bring you the first colour in the new series “Paint the Colours of a Canadian Fall“!  Fall in Canada is such a gorgeous season and it is the perfect time for a little colour inspiration.

Today is all about red.  Gorgeous red painted furniture.  That beautiful, deep, colour of the Canadian Maple leaf in Fall reda red maple leaf on green green grassI have rounded up some of my favourite furniture painters from around Ottawa and asked them to share their work as inspiration.  Who better to inspire us with Canadian colours then Canadian painters!

Check out their gorgeous red pieces below and be sure to drop by next Tuesday to be inspired by Yellowcathy-haley-red-washstandCathy Haley | UpwithFurniture | Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Tricycle
