Wall Staining: An Alternative to Paint

Italy

Part of the beauty of Italy is the colors of the buildings. Picture the rich ochres and peachy pinks of Tuscany or the brights of Burano. In Piemonte, Diana and Micha love rich, saturated color and are not afraid to splash it on their walls. Literally.

They are fortunate to have the beautiful plaster walls of the Baur Bed & Breakfast as their canvas and found the plaster takes color quite nicely in an irregular and natural way.

To get the formula for the stain they use, go to Diana's blog.
