Introductions: Turquoise buffet named “Indira”

turquoise4 turquoise3 turquoise2 turquoise1

This lovely piece is heavy as a mug and full of storage. I have painted countless pieces in this style and even this color…..but I never tire of the results when using this beautiful turquoise. I chose several different knobs to go on this piece….there are many that would work….but this piece may already be headed to her forever home in MA so these knobs are the ones being considered by the client. I love the marbled wood knob with the turquoise, as it balances out the punchy color nicely. I also chose a beautiful red toile’ wallpaper for lining the drawers and think it compliments the design plan perfectly.

If for some reason this lovely lady does not head to MA….she will be available in the Knack store…..and in the online shop as well :} She won’t be with me for very long….. as there is already one person on the waiting list hoping she does not head out.

I’ll keep you posted!
