Hearing about my love of succulents is probably getting a bit redundant right about now (if somehow you’re not tired of it, you can check out some projects here, and here). So today I’m not sharing a succulent project (yet…)- I’m excited to share a fun Succulent Inspired Color Palette with you guys!
I was at the store looking for paint colors for a fun planter project I’m sharing later this week, and I decided to go with paint colors inspired by succulents themselves. I’m not usually a huge fan of purple, but lately when paired with other colors I’m digging- it just works for me!
I love how succulents have such a wide range of colors in them- it’s like they’re the ultimate people pleaser… like muted earth tones? they’ve got ’em… loving up neons? they’ve got that too… I can’t wait to show you the project I made with these colors- it turned out awesome!
Choosing paint colors is something I really love- it’s both a challenge and therapeutic for me- the perfect combo!
This week I started on a BIG project that I’m honored to be a part of and my first step was choosing paint colors for it. We’ve talked many times about the non-profit organization Worthwhile Wear– Their mission is to help women that have been sexually exploited and/or trafficked. Just last week they were granted a lease from the county on a large home with tons of land, that will provide long-term residential housing and after-care for women in the Greater Philadelphia and Bucks County area. The program and house is called The Well.
I’m going to be helping with the interior design of the home over the next 2 months- and actually asking for lots of help from all of you along the way! Once we get into the room-by-room designs I’ll share more pictures, but since security and anonymity are very important to keep these women safe, I can’t show you full pictures of the house, but here are a few pictures I can share for now.
There is amazing stonework on all the out buildings.
I’m already dreaming of this covered porch with adirondack chairs, amazing seasonal plants, and being a place where the women can sit and enjoy the beauty surrounding the home.
The landscaping is pretty overgrown right now (and that’s a massive understatement), but it has so much potential.
The Well is going to be a new beginning for many women and open doors that will actually change lives. It’s amazing to be just a tiny part of that.
Here’s a sneak peek of the paint colors I’ve chosen. We wanted something feminine, but calming and bright, but comfortable too. I’ll be sharing my plans room by room and asking for input and help over the next few weeks.
So, between my succulent inspired color palette and choosing colors for The Well- it’s been a pretty fulfilling week so far paint-wise. I’d love for you to check out Worthwhile Wear’s website and also let me know if you’d like to be a part of this home makeover- I’ll need help from readers both near and far!
On the LWN, you have occasionally referenced an additive to latex paint that allows you to paint with latex on fabric or on rugs. What is that additive? Craft store employees have no idea………can you help?
Hi Carrolle!! It’s called Fabric Medium and I really like Martha’s version. It’s sold on Amazon, at Walmart, Michaels etc… here’s the link to it at Joanne Fabrics! Thanks for watching! http://www.joann.com/martha-stewart-6oz-tintable-fabric-medium/11386695.html
