Color + History
We are pleased to showcase a recent design projects by Claire Thomas — design maven, curator of color and all-around creative. When viewing her latest creation, located in Venice, Calif., we noted how the lush and fun color palette brought this magical inspiration to life.
At Dunn-Edwards Paints we’ve written a lot about Art Deco historic resources like museums and theaters, investigated colors closely associated with the Beaux Arts style like those found in the Stanford Green Library, and we’ve also shared about colors associated with Mid-century Modern architecture. This time we’re diving into the Victorian Era and exploring the color influences of one such gem of this architectural era, the Italianate Victorian Manor known as the John Muir house.
The historically-accurate colors of the collection were inspired by the architecture of the American West and carefully matched to actual samples from historic buildings and sites like Stanford University’s Green Library.
