Guest Post {Remodelista}…

Today I am super excited to have Editor in Chief of Remodelista, Julie Carlson, share with us a major tend alert that we are seeing everywhere. Overdying has become a movement and we are embracing this movement. Julie and the team of Remodelista have created a phenomenal one stop shop site that has people from all over the world drooling for more. I know that I personally cannot get enough. So please enjoy this guest post and please note, next week I have a very special giveaway that has to do with Remodelista!!

We first started noticing rumblings of the overdying trend when we admired Diesel’s Successful Living collection, featuring tables and chairs stained in variegated shades of indigo. Then, when ABC Carpet came out with its Reform Rugs collection of vintage carpets dyed in vibrant shades of fuchsia, turquoise, and crimson, we took note (not coincidentally, Restoration Hardware has just come out with its own line of overdyed rugs called Color-Wash).

And not long ago we posted about artisan furniture maker Sawkille’s latest designs, made from bleached hardwood, which takes well to color (they hand mix their own transparent wood dyes in shades of indigo and royal blue).

Flooring companies are getting in on the act as well, with companies like Timeline Wood in Los Angeles offering stained wood flooring in shades like Blue Chalk, Tomato Peel, and New Orange.

Finally, we called it a trend when we spotted the Nordic Spruce Box colorwashed cabinet by Belgian design collective Labt displayed at Maison Objet in January.
