Well I haven’t started painting it yet, but I’d say my store front could use some fresh colour couldn’t you?
Well the trick will be to choose something that’s classic but eye-catching, fresh but not too bright and definitely signature Michael Penney, right? I’ve thought of plain white (fresh, clean, simple) but think it will just wash out. Maybe if there was nice rich brick above, but alas there is not. I’ve thought of all black (classic, traditional, refined, dressy) but think, been there, done that. You know me, I love colour and so I think it’s gotta be something a little more innovative than black or white! And for colour, I often look to the historical yet impact-full shades from Farrow & Ball. I’m thinking of going with one of my all time favourites – Arsenic!
It’s that great combo of something historical and yet oh so charming on a store front (and definitely eye grabbing, don’t you think?). Like Purl Soho in New York (although my arsenic will be a little less minty).
For me, this is pure charm and I’m willing to take the risk. No guts, no glory! Here’s Arsenic from in some other great applications, just to make you love it more!
Well, what do you think? Am I nuts?
Happy Weekend everyone!
