Winter in Canada can be very long… that is no secret. But, while it can be daunting and dark and cold, it can also be beautiful and cozy and relaxing.
White is definitely the spokes-colour of winter here. White is not the only prominent colour in winter though. When it is really cold, the skies are beautiful shades of blue. When it is warmer and snowing, the world is grey. And right in the middle of it all, we get a little break with a holiday all sprinkled with pink and red ♥
Last Fall I did a series called Paint the Colours of a Canadian Fall. The series featured furniture painted by local artists in gorgeous Fall colours and let me tell you, there is some talent around here!
We had such fun seeing everyone’s beautiful furniture that I wanted to do a similar series for Winter. For each of the next four weeks, painters will feature their pieces painted in colours that are reminiscent of Canadian winters. This series will not only feature local painters but ones from all over North America.
Be inspired by the colours reminiscent of a Canadian winter; white, red and pink, grey and blue on painted furniture. @RecreatedDesign
See you back here on Tuesday as we are inspired by all things white.
If you are a furniture painter and would like to submit your pieces for a feature, please email pictures to me at [email protected]
