Our previous entry of “Vintage Tin—Re-Colored Beautifully” spoke of the plan (aka the hope & wish!) to have Re-Colored Vintage Tin panels traveling down the wall of the staircase in The Cottage at Rooster Ridge.
Since that writing the design concept has come to fruition. (Yay!) We are thrilled with the visual feast of color and pattern that now delights the eye—and soul!
We forgot about design rules— the placement of each tin panel was not choreographed or planned. The concept of having precise separations of spacing between the various panels was—abandoned!
This presentation became about the freedom of exploring and enjoying the art of design and expression!
We relished the various shades of reds—the deep burnt burgundy
and the contrasting, effervescent and emotional pink!
The addition of two different shades of green in this pink, purple and red explosion of color created an organic balance. The greens became the stocks and leaves of this burst of flowery color.
In this experience of artistic expression the Vintage Tins became our palette!
At The Cottage at Rooster Ridge we are fans! The options are endless—the mixing of patterns, colors, sizes—and the multitude of choices of how to display—independently or with the creation of interesting groupings are endless!
The texture is vibrant with the combination of the dimensional pressed patterns of the tin and the surface texture created by peeling and cracking of the original paint. The aging of each tin creates an original work, as no two are alike!
The possibilities are endless—using the same pattern in various colors, intermixing patters of the same color—we get dizzy just thinking of all the ways these pieces can be used.
The plan at The Cottage at Rooster Ridge is to have the Vintage Tin art go down the entire stairway of The Cottage! Time to discover more!
We are considering making one-of-a-kind sets available for purchase—any interest? We have many ideas and color combinations in mind! Contact us!
Vintage Tin—in the original historic form or Vintage Tin Art—which has been recently enhanced—is nothing short of artwork!
