Antique-Red Hutch with White Gold Ornament

Antique-Red Hutch with White Gold Ornament

This was a collaborative effort between Lynne Rutter and myself. Lynne is an extremely talented painter with an impeccable color sense. I recommend a visit to her site. The interior decorators we worked with designed the shape of the hutch and the rest was up to us.

Lynne and her crew did all the prep work and then painted the piece a fairly bright red, and then glazed over it with a dark tobacco brown wash, to give it a look almost like cordovan leather. It's a really nice effect that's hard to capture in photos. I came up with the designs for the scrolling ornament and executed it in white gold leaf. Then I pulled out some details with a dark brown/black paint to give it some depth and a little more visual interest.
