And just like that 2016 is over!
I for one am happy to see a brand new year.
Isn’t the feeling of a fresh start amazing?!
Check out the first Velvet Finishes January Colour of the month for 2017…
January, in my mind, equals snow. I realize that is not a truth, but when I think of January, I think of snow.
I am a snow hater – a winter whiner – and a cold weather pansy.
I will admit it.
However, if you’re going to do winter weather – you might as well go to New Zealand! 😉
We actually got to stand on Leibig Dome.
What an experience.
Out of all the amazing things we did and saw in our 3 weeks touring New Zealand, this was definitely all of our favorite thing. But this is not the only reason to go to Lake Tekapo. Read more here…
Enough snow…let’s talk design!
In my book, gorgeous white, grays, and neutral décor are beautiful and make the long winters more bearable. (kinda)
So, let’s get to it while I am sitting here with my space heater on – seriously.
Our January Velvet Finishes Colour of the Month is
Restrained, low-key. This beautiful shade of beige has just a hint of a green undertone.
Bottom line – IT IS BEAUTIFUL.
Such a great wintry shade, don’t you think? A beautiful neutral beige that looks great with all colors.
Let’s take a peek at some Understated painted pieces and design inspirations, shall we?
Calm and classy. Perfection!

I will take one of these beautiful bars at Casa de Loco!
I love a unique project and this one is definitely worthy of sharing. A DIY coffee table painted neutral. Love this shabby chic look?
Can it get any better than this kitchen? I think not!
Here is a lovely table that we brought back to life with Velvet Finishes Understated. It is amazing what a little VF paint can do!
This simple yet gorgeous bedroom is definitely everything but understated!
