#55 – Lorne’s Nashville Blues
Location: Nashville, TN
Type: 2 bedroom bungalow, owned
Why I use color: My Goal is a free book. You can say whatever as long as I’m in the top 100. Hey Maxwell, I want my book signed, please. Please!!
Blue is an obsession. The idea for my place was to drown in blue. Just to see if I can overdose. I haven’t yet. My dining room is not so monochromatic. So for the sake of a free book, and the love of AT, I’ll give you a peek of my dining room. So basically my use of color is out of a compulsion to saturate everything in blue.
2 good color tips:
1. Let’s be honest, you may not want color tips from me. My theory is paint everything blue, then paint over things that bug you. I used to work as a scenic painter, (before I had to get a job that pays, finance…yuck!!!. Nashville is not the best MKT for scenic painters, but it’s home) so, I’m not afraid of a roller.
2. Oh, I’m an oops paint hawk. Oops paint is awesome.
2 good color resources:
1. Springtime. Redbuds are my favorite.
2. There are some great colors in the wall paper featured on AT and Design Sponge.
