Scarlet Gypsy


A very difficult piece...I had no idea how to transform this very plain retro looking sideboard into anything remotely interesting. All I knew is that I wanted to add warmth and vibrancy and to give it a bohemian feel.

Painting the piece a crimson red brought it to life however it still lacked depth. Using floral stencils and a deeper red brought much more to this piece and helped to achieve the look I was after.

Scarlet Gypsy would most suit someone who is daring and adventurous with their interiors. Someone who isn't afraid to showcase a unique piece in their space and who is drawn to an eclectic and bohemian feel in their surrounds.

Scarlet Gypsy is not boring or safe.  She is bold, inviting and celebratory.
