A Seattle visit from artist Lisa Ridgers!

Recently we had the pleasure of hosting one of our most sought-after and prolific artists, Lisa Ridgers, along with her longtime partner and business manager Penny Alspaugh.

Lisa has been a Third & Wall artist for almost 10 years, but her home is in England, so this was the first opportunity she’s had to visit our showroom in the Emerald City. Since Lisa’s stateside visit was such a rare and beautiful thing for us, we made the most of it!

Although technically she was on vacation, we talked her into touching up some canvases. She was more than happy to jump in with her paintbrush and paints!

 

 

Lisa, Penny and Aimee reviewed all of the fantastic new Ridgers art that recently arrived from the UK. Lisa’s newest works are large and vibrant, with a range of inspiring color palettes that satisfy and transcend the wide and ever-changing range of interior decor trends. They include delicate figuratives, bright modern abstracts, and even traditional and transitional landscapes.

Lisa’s agent Brad Huff joined in on the fun as they toured the Third & Wall showroom and artwork.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then it was time for everyone to relax at a fun and casual lunch around our conference table. Those of the 3&W team that hadn’t met Lisa and Penny yet had a great time getting to know them.

A BIG thank you to Lisa and Penny for crossing the pond to come visit us and meet the team!

Here’s to Green for St. Paddy’s Day

pantone-210-new-color-families-greensSt. Patrick’s Day is upon us. Everyone from schoolchildren to our coworkers will be wearing green on the 17th in order to avoid the dreaded pinch. If your wardrobe is short on green we can’t save you from a pinching incident, but we do have plenty of green for your walls to wear!

According to Pantone, the Mothership of color, “The human eye literally sees more green than any other color. The hue of foliage, grass, and growing plants; bountiful trees, lush meadows and clinging vines; the shade of forests and jungles; elves and leprechauns; the product of the Irish patriot and St. Patrick’s Day; with a multitude of greens so plentiful in the surrounding world, there are many moods the green family can convey.”

The color experts at Pantone go on to explain that green is a restful color, influencing our nervous system, slowing and deepening our breath, and relaxing our heart by slowing the production of stress hormones.

Whether in airy meadows, urban parks or macro-views of nature’s hidden areas, the use of green can promote a sense of balance, harmony and reassurance.

There, don’t you feel calmer already? Get some green!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

White-on-White – The Hot Decor Trend for 2016

Moving towards simplicity and a clean, classic look, several major paint brands have declared  off-white to be the hot interior color for 2016.

There are hundreds of shades of white, and each shade morphs into something new with the shifting rays of natural and interior light. White is never just white as long as light is hitting it!

Whether warm or cool, or a combination of both, white invites serenity and reflection, and creates a fresh, uncomplicated space in which to accent textiles, furniture pieces or objets d’art.

If you’re thinking about creating a white-on-white interior, do a little homework – get some paint swatches and compare them in a variety of lighting situations and at different times of day.
