Porters Please....






I've just love Porters Paint - their finishes are just so textured and interesting - particularly distemper and fresco. Here are a few shots of their beautiful painted finishes. Hope you like...

Hi Shannon,
I have a quick question about colour. In my small lounge room are these burgundy satin curtains, very bold, which I'm trying to soften by adding other colours to the room, such as pinks and teals. Do you have any suggestions to make this room prettier without losing the curtains.
Many thanks

Hi MrRabbit,
The curtains sound lovely and quite a feature in the room. Many colours go back with burgundy - I presume that it is quite an intense tone given the fabric is satin? If so you can go for some pinks and duck egg blues in softer tones to lighten the space up and make it prettier. Just make sure to add a stronger tone through the details as well, such as your teal so it will create a continuity from the intensity of the curtains through to the rest of the room. Thinks patterns too - that will bring the burgundy from the windows into the room as well.
Hope that helps
