My friend Chad is a horticultural expert and landscape architect (and former Monticello guide, and swimmer, and acapella group member, and professor…the man never sleeps!), and he could go on about a blossom for days. So it’s only fitting that he used a Magnolia tree (Saucer Magnolia? My horticultural knowledge does not hold a candle to Chad’s) as the inspiration for paint color. He just moved into his new place and knew the second he looked out the window that the guest room would become The Magnolia Room!
I should add that the room is not done yet. Chad, what in the world is the story with the pink flamingo?
I also love this doorknocker Chad picked out; Chad, if you’re reading, comment and tell us where you found it! Winterthur? Monticello? Smith and Hawkin?
What do you use for color inspiration? Have you ever used a tree or a blossom?
