If you ever get a chance to go to Marfa – I think you just may find it interesting …

a small rural working town … and a rigid modern movement

living together in a soft and graceful way.

.  .  .  .  .

I plan on using these photos in my art studio in the next few weeks …

along with some paints and encaustics … so excited!!

I guess it took a little road trip from Austin to Bainbridge

by way of Marfa to get the inspiration flowing!

Whatever works … Works! ; )

Peace and Love to all of you!!

introducing kalklitir . . .

Komedal Road is very excited to announce that we are going to be carrying

the most gorgeous line of lime paint from Sweden . . .

Kalklitir

Kalklitir wall finishes are natural lime paints for use on walls and furniture.

They are beautiful, environmentally friendly, and are VOC free – being made

from natural lime and natural pigments.

When mixed with water . . .

Kalklitir produces a gorgeous chalky matte finish

that has superb depth and will age beautifully over time!

A perfect choice for old world interiors . . .

to the most modern of houses!

Kalklitir is packaged as a powder in 1 kg bags.

Each 1 kg bag of powder when mixed with 1.7 liters of water will make 2 liters of lime paint.

These 2 liters will cover approximately 16 to 24 square meters (one coat) or 8-12 square meters with 2 coats. (Kalklitir recommends a 2 coat application).

Kalklitir should always be applied with a lime brush – and should not be rolled with a roller.

The result that you get from this beautiful product is absolutely stunning!!

A lovely soft matte finish with depth that is quite simply amazing!!

Here are just a couple of my favorite colors from the line . . .

Antique Bleu . . . Lute Primo . . .

Audur Skula is the talented designer behind this beautiful line of wall finishes . . .

She has a depth of knowledge and paint skills . . .

and I have loved being inspired by her – both with her Kalklitir line of paints

and also on her personal blog When Decorating!

Here is a wonderful video of Audur applying Kalklitir to a wall

showing how simple and easy it is to do!!

 Kalklitir – How to apply lime color on a wall from Kalklitir on Vimeo.

We are beyond excited to be the first retailer here in the US to represent their products!

. . .

They are now available here in our Online Shop!!

Hope you are now inspired as much as I have been . . .

looking forward to sharing more with you in the weeks and months to come!!

Welcome to the BEAUTIFUL world of Kalklitir!! 🙂

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!!

peace and love . . .
