Paint
Well here we are at P and I’m finding it very hard to play favourites. Having to choose between materials close to my heart including paper and porcelain, my decision rests on paint. There’s so much you can do to an interior with a spare afternoon and a pot of paint – it’s just so immediate. I’ve always kept many different types of paint close at hand in my stylist’s toolkit, but I came to value it even more when I developed 11 paint themes with 10 colours in each. Over a two year period, I was able to use my books and travels as inspiration to pull together colour palettes that I frequently turn to when I’m in full stylist mode. From the Foundation palette, which (true to its name) makes a fantastic base palette for interiors, to the more whimsical Tales Of A Sea Gypsy, the only limit of what you can do is imagination. Using paint in varying degrees can mean that one person’s take on a palette is oceans away from another’s, which is the reason I chose it as the star of the P material.
