Before I begin... Disclosure: Ace Hardware has provided free paint samples. I was also compensated for my time and this blog post. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware.

Excited to be participating in Ace Hardware's 31 Days of Color! I picked out my color, Absinthe Dreams, from a color wheel of gorgeous hues and shades. I immediately gravitated toward the creamy green-based color, dreaming of my weekend in Palm Springs in two weeks. I looked to the different shades of palms, cool blues, and metallic gold for my palette.

For the execution, Ace sent in a $.99 sample of the paint, which was a generous volume to really get to know the color. I contemplated different options; initially, I was going to shoot a beautiful flat on marble with a sage plant, gold candle, and a splatter swatch of the color. After setup, I felt it didn’t do the color much justice—I wanted to show its life and vibrancy! Next, I was going to pour the color onto my phrenology statue and make a slow-motion video, but that didn’t translate exactly, either. This is when the idea of motion came into play.

I observed its movement and texture and realized it had abject features, like an opulent Exorcist. I quickly ran to my magazine stash and chose a photo to resemble beautiful “yak,” and thought glitter would be the perfect touch. Lisa, my awesome intern, reminded be of Santigold’s album cover photo and we knew this was it. I have an extensive glitter collection, but unfortunately most of my craft kit is still back at my old house, so Lisa mentioned that she could make a moving .gif of glitter over the original photo… and it turned out more beautifully than I could have imagined! Lisa is amazing. Following, I included inspiration with the exact color, and directed to the shadowy forest shades of palms as well.

When I do get around to painting the walls in my loft, I’m absolutely stopping by the Ace Studio for color picking. Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.
