Since I’m off in New York, I asked Si of the fantastic blog french by design to step in today and share with you. today’s post is spot on — a TREND ALERT onthe latest ‘dipped’ craze, which personally I am most fond of! thanks so much to si for stepping in today, and please pop on over and visit french by design — you will not be disappointed!

A cool trend spotted everywhere lately: half painted furniture or home accessories, giving the impression of a “dipped in paint” effect [keyword here: blue painters’ tape, unless you’re purposely looking for a dripping effect as shown in the ikea vases]. What a cool, original and cheap (since you only use half the paint!) way to update a basic piece of furniture. Brilliant!

  1. Loving the dipped look. Particularly as our ‘What Is Love?’ oak-framed print is featured in the second photograph with the dipped stools. Clearly we’re rather on-trend :)

  2. I really dig this dipped look! designlovefest had a really great tutorial for making dipped vases or lights I believe! So very cool! Looks so fresh against white!
