Paumes books: color inspiration

Last month I wrote about the Japanese Paumes books.  These books are so inspiring — every page is full of great ideas.  I decided to start a series where I pick an image or room in one of the books and do a project or design a space based on the inspiration.

The inspiration for this month is the awe inspiring home of stylist Susanna Vento featured in Finland children’s spaces.  I love the peachy/pink color scattered in parts of her daughter’s room so much I decided to paint something in my house that color.

I found this great set of wooden mushrooms (I collect mushrooms), primed them, and then mixed two paint colors together; acrylic white and craftsmart’s Neon Orange.  This was such an easy and fun project.  I hope you enjoy!

What a fun idea to start this series using inspiration from the Paumes books. And I love that great peachy/pink colour! x
