About 5 years ago, Ralph Lauren paint was pulled from Home Depot to make room for Martha Stewart paint.
For some odd reason, RL Paint was then only available in 2 locations in the state of Texas. (7 places in Alaska)
Dallas was not one of them. (sad face)
Wouldn’t you know that was right before we bought the Cavender house…….so every room in our house is painted in Martha Stewart colors.
Well, look what appeared at the Home Depot last week…..
(cue the sound of angels trumpeting)
I know, we’re excited too.
The paint colors are divided into “lifestyles”….. like Throughbred, Urban Loft, Vintage Masters, Island Brights, and Harbour Blues….
Now, I’m sure y’all are thinking, “Paint is paint”
…..and yes, it’s all pretty much the same.
But Mr. Lauren had the genius idea to create specialty finishes.
Paint that actually emulates the texture and nuances of river rocks, or candle light, or linen, or aged leather, or suede…….
or (our personal favorite) denim……
Take a gander at all the shades of denim and chambray available.
There are even sample boards with chip colors on the RL Home website.
Like this one for River Rock.
If you think you have to be a skilled painter to achieve these techniques……..you are dead wrong.
Anyone with a little painting skill can do these finishes. There are even free instructional videos on the RL Home site…….just in case you need one.
Too bad every room in the Cavender house has already been painted in the past few years……
….but ya never know.
