This was taken at work last week, after I'd been painting a sample board using Afghan Tan from Papers and Paints. It's a possible colour choice for the kitchen walls in a country house that we've been working on. A delightful shade, wouldn't you agree?
For the last twenty five years, Patrick Baty has tried to build on the reputation and skills of his father, Robert, who founded Papers and Paints in 1960. The shop, a whirlwind of colour located just off the Fulham Road, is an absolute joy to spend time in. Whilst retaining the original concept of the shop, Patrick has developed the process of colour matching, and has computerised the archive of specially matched colours that he inherited from his father. The majority of Patrick’s time however is now spent as a historic paint consultant, sampling paint layers on buildings, bridges and architectural details. A life spent in fantastic colour.
You know what? I'm rather feeling orange at the moment. What about this pair of orange Wedgwood Pottery plates from 1stdibs?
Or, perhaps more realistically, this Beams Plus Cable-Knit Linen and Cotton-Blend Sweater from MR PORTER? Distilled happiness in clothing form.
These Clementine Dinner Candles from Pentreath & Hall might just do the trick.
