Haand

The first thing I noticed about Haand‘s pottery pieces is that several can be used in multiple ways – kitchen, bedroom dresser, dining table, and more. Each piece is designed by Mark Warren and crafted by hand in Eli Whitney, North Carolina at the Haand workshop by a small team of dedicated makers. The care and attention paid to each “farmhouse futuristic” piece is abundantly clear.

Bringing Poised Taupe Home

sherwin-williams-poised-taupe-design-crush

 

Let’s start this off honestly: Browns are not my bag. So when my long-standing partner Sherwin-Williams approached me about sharing their 2017 Color of the YearPoised Taupe – I was unsure. In my mind taupe is a drab nail color my mother used to wear in the 90s, one that I didn’t like then and didn’t feel much differently about now.

But then I actually saw the color in question, and I was proven wrong once again in life. Because this taupe? This taupe, Poised Taupe, was unlike anything I’d seen before. Plenty of grey undertones, even a little violet in some light, a modern take on a classic color.

After considering where Poised Taupe might fit into my home I had the answer. A small wood side table  that had banged up legs and had seen better days could use a bit of a makeover, a second chance at life. I was also curious how different textures might take the paint, so I decided to give a seagrass basket that I keep blankets in an upgrade as well.

I left the surface of the side table unpainted for a bit of extra contrast. After giving the legs and underside a light sanding, I wiped them off with a cloth and swiped on two light coats of Poised Taupe in Sherwin-WilliamsProClassic formula with a satin finish.

My seagrass basket took a bit more time, but I found painting each little section therapeutic. After pouring through pattern options online I went with a simple zigzag – because sometimes simple is best, ya know? I love the update and how it feels a little bit like a fair isle sweater for the cooler months that are nearly here. For this mini-project I went with the Poised Taupe in Sherwin-WilliamsEmerald formula (my favorite!), also in a satin finish.

For a color I wasn’t so sure about, Poised Taupe sure seems to fit right in in my home with its earthy feel. Both the side table and basket are currently front and center when you walk in the door, nestled in the nook of my staircase. It’s the perfect place to put a vase of fall flowers and drop your keys.
