To many die-hard Irish people, the idea of highlighting both green and orange within one week of each other might not sit well. But I have a very good reason for celebrating our rich orange color.
Last weekend my we drove through the most incredible fields of poppies. Never before has this California native seen such splendor. I’m telling you it was like being sucked in to the set of the Wizard of Oz.
You cannot duplicate nature with art, but you can have fun trying. California Poppy, one of the 13 colors available from She Shades paint, attempts to mimic the endlessly vibrant color of the Golden State’s official wildflower. This true orange makes patio furniture, window trim, doors and potting benches come alive.
- Mix California Poppy with Queen Anne’s Lace to create a delicate peach shade. Makes a perfect restful hue for the interior of your she shed.
- Pair with Tidepool and create beachy stripes on floor or furniture.
- Give your tired folding chairs or a salvaged metal tea cart new life with an orange makeover.
