I recently painted this desk.
Yes, I did this on purpose you may want to ask and it was fun!
It was inspired by a piece I saw at a client’s house pictured here.
If this style of furniture has a name, I don’t know what it is. Inadvertent design? Accidental decor? Regardless of its origin, I happen to love it!
The desk I painted was not painstakingly planned and thought out. Shocking, I know but I used what I had on hand.
Speaking of accidental art, I snapped this picture of the leg of my work pants because I liked the composition. It inspired me because it was not deliberate. Laugh if you must but I do not discriminate on where I find inspiration!
I saw this piece at a store and determined this may be a growing trend.
In my world, I like to believe that these pieces were either put together from leftover materials or have some interesting and harrowing history instead of being manufactured in a factory.
So that is what I choose to believe about this picture currently being circulated on Pinterest and tumblr. Its colors are vibrant and captivating and could tell an adventurous story.
What do you think? Beguiling or garish?
