RENAISSANCE MAN

@michaelthomsonartisan & daughter Riva immitating archangels in a Michelangelo masterpiece whilst expertly lime-washing a vaulted ceiling.
.
Those of you who have lime-washed before will know just what a feat this is to behold, as Michael & Riva use loose, artistic brushstrokes, moving quickly across the ceiling, never over-lapping dry paint with wet.
.
This sublime image was captured by our technical guru @carledwinharvie.t.v overseeing from the stability of the floor.
.
If you're considering the chalky, natural loveliness of Lime Wash, we recommend checking our website for a painter like Michael, or drop by a showroom for advice on how to tackle the job!

FEELING WARM IN A COOL SCHEME
.
Spotted at @everlongjoinery, this beautiful & functional space caught our eye due to the perfectly finished joinery & wonderful warmth injected by Porter's Naturel Flooring in this otherwise contemporary, fresh and cool scheme.
We think it's an ideal example of having the best of all worlds... loads of warmth in a fresh scheme, ease of living with high-end finishes, & an aspirational yet totally inviting home.
.
The #portersflooring is looking rather handsome too, if we do say so ourselves!
The choice by homeowners Ali & Mick to invest in Naturel French Oak engineered boards anchors the space and draws the warm and natural beauty of oak throughout every room, including this hand crafted bag nook by Everlong.

LIBERTY GREEN

Who out there has a favourite flower?
.
High on our list has to be the achingly delicate & beautiful anemone for it's translucent crepe petals & dark soul.
.
In celebration of spring we are scheming with Anemones in this opulently textured paper from Missoni Home, available from Porter's Showrooms.
.
Tag us in your own floral colour schemes with the Porter's fandeck and brushouts, we'd love to see Springtime through your eyes (or Autumn/Fall if you're on top of the globe)! @porterspaints #porterspaints #sunshinesoutfandecksout

Life can be tough, even with a fresh coat of paint. .
The Porter's world is a glorious cross-section of our community, united by a love of the transformative nature of paint & colour. Just as colour is universal, so is mental illness & we're aware that so often we're working with you at some stressful moments, as you transform your spaces & your lives.
.
Today is #RUOKDay, so we're taking the opportunity to pay closer attention to the people around us & check in with 'Are you OK?'
.
If you feel like someone around you might be struggling, don't hesitate, ask them if they're OK & listen with an open mind.
.
Head over to @ruokday for more resources & remember that every day is a great day to start a conversation that could change a life.

THAT VIEW THOUGH
.

We are LIVING for the way this blackened timber wall stretches out into the beautiful abyss, drawing the outside in and seemingly reaching for the misty mountain in the distance. 
Suitable for both interior and exterior, Porter's Palm Beach Black has found an ideal project in this home in Gerroa.
.
.
This stunningly beautiful build is by Kye Furlong @saltboxbuilding_co, dreamt up by the creative minds at @claytonorszaczky.

Velvety soft Interior Distemper in soon-to-be-released colour Gulf Stream, moments after the chalk & lime paste was added creating magical pools of pigment.

Round of applause required here:
@interiorsbypeace took the plunge with vibrant glowing green and made it #werrrrrrrk! Nothing better than a strong and complex colour to set off artwork and precious belongings.

Has anyone spotted this #naturalbeauty gracing our TV screens tonight? #theblock
.
.
Melbourne's own rock star the @palaistheatre is now a TV star too, all dressed up in her Porter's Mineral Paint!
.
.
A little like a silk gown the Mineral Paint is a tough breathable system, perfect for older dames like the Palais where moisture can otherwise become trapped in the render. All very technical, so for now let's just appreciate her gorgeous golden glow on the silver screen!
.
Lovingly restored by @lovellchen

French Wash walls so beautifully applied and looking at home in this nursery by @tennille_joy_interiors . This colour custom matched to 'Himalayan Salt'. Hopefully the backdrop for many a night of blissful rest for one lucky bambino!

Would you trust this face?

A divine detail from the Frutto Proibito wallpaper in Cerulean and Orange, by Fornasetti & @cole_and_son_wallpapers, available from Porter's Showrooms with luxurious paint colours and premium French Oak floorboards on hand to complete the project.
