From Trash to Trendy makes Pretty

Spring is here and it is time to wake up the artist within. Unfortunately the will to create does not always equal with the talent to do so, which is why PEBEO, creators of colors for arts and leisure in collaboration with Madeleine Langlois from Maddy Lane Design are presenting the first of a series of easy-to-do home beautifying projects. Maddy who is an interior designer columnist and PEBEO, created easy to do step-by-step decor projects with your readers in mind. This month project is a Contemporary Retro dinnerware ensemble.


Maddy Langlois, keeping in mind the latest trends, such as Contemporary Retro had this to say about the proposed dinnerware ensemble,” These designs with their bright fun colors and patterns are a flash from the past with a news twist and”, added Maddy, “These sleek organic shapes, with a pop art flair are not only trendy but nowadays what can be considered the new classic”.
The entire dinnerware ensemble consisting of placemats, napkins, vases and glasses are all made using recycled and discarded items which were all revived with style using PEBEO colors. Maddy gave new life to these items and all at a very low cost. The PEBEO product lines, are well known for their colors and accessories for arts, leisure and teaching.
