Publication: Home Paint It
Date: Special Edition 2016
Once a year the folk at Home Magazine / Tuis Tydskrif publishes a special edition called “Paint It” – the Afrikaans version being “Verf Dit”. The annual magazine focuses mainly on paint. It features ideas and inspiration – anything from clever techniques to colour schemes. Not to mention the nifty DIY tips.
The aptly named 2016 edition, Play with Colour, paid special attention to colour trends – from bold brights to cool greys. To illustrate how you can incorporate grey into your home or furniture, Home selected a image featuring a home designed by Design Monarchy. The lovely Vintage Industrial residence has been featured in the Magazine many times.
The image they selected is one of the grey and yellow toned guest room. We gave a old retro dressing table and bentwood chair a new lease on life by painting it in shades of grey. With the addition of pops of yellow the vintage space transformed into a quirky and trendy scene.
Home’s Comment on Our Play with Colour:
“We love the shades of grey on this dresser and chair in Mickey and Sharon Turner’s house in Chintsa, East London. Rose McClement of Design Monarchy first sanded the furniture, then applied an undercoat before painting it with a small sponge roller. And just look how the yellow pops against the soft grey tones! Timeless and dreamy.”
