This week’s inspiration started when I noticed my husband reading a biography of John James Audubon. Then we were in Key West on Monday and happened to pass by the Audubon House (where he is believed to created several paintings of Florida species for his “Birds of America”). I remembered that Olympic Paints recently introduced a color collection inspired by his works – including the beautiful “Tranquil” palette, which perfectly captures the colors of the gorgeous sunsets here. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a room in these soothing hues? (-Moe)
