Over a year ago Syd and I were sitting at dinner with a dear friend of ours, who does textile and clothing design (he is now the Creative Director at STANCE socks), and he offered to help us figure out how to design and print home decor textiles. Naturally, we said yes! We got to work conceptualizing, drawing, editing, revising, printing and re-printing until we finally had our first collection! Then UPS lost some of our textiles and still haven't recovered them, so we had to delay…
One of the number one questions we get asked is, "What color is that?" We will be doing several editions of our paint series (whites, blues, etc.), but are starting with our go-to grays. And don't forget to paint a large sample on card stock before painting the whole room! Enjoy!
Benjamin Moore Evening Sky 833 "This is a deep, dark inky blue that can look almost black in the shade, but it turns into a rich, deep blue in the sun. It would look just as great on a stone house in the mountains as it would on a faded, silvery-shingled Cape Cod at the beach." -ANDREW FLESHER
Silken Pine by Benjamin Moore "Pale green is a kind of universal donor. Even our most beige clients seem to respond well to green, probably because it's a color we see so much in nature. This is a soft, celadony green, like a piece of the palest jade. I'll often use it in a master bedroom." -Elissa Cullman
