About 5 months ago I posted about Randy Boyd HERE, a designer who works out of Laguna Beach. His charming beach cottage was featured in Cottage Style magazine (no longer published) and later in Romantic Homes magazine. While I don’t feel RH magazine fits my style (usually), I purchased the back issue for the Randy Boyd feature and they nearly gave me a 1-year subscription to the magazine.
The November issue had an extensive feature on a designer by the name of Randal Weeks, founder of Aidan Gray Home HERE. The magazine captured his home and once again I found myself daydreaming about the beauty of each room.
Aidan Gray Home HERE makes it possible to purchase many of the furnishings including lamps, tables, upholstered pieces and accessories. Randal Weeks found Aidan Gray in 2003 while working on his MBA.
His bio states that he was inspired by Oprah to follow his dream of owning a company that produces beautiful furnishings. By good fortune, he happened to hear her on one of her shows claim, “You will never be happy if you are not passionate about what you do”. Wise words for us all!
Hello. I would love to know how to acheive the soft worn looking appearence of the A. G. wooden parts on his furniture line. I love that soft gray look. Do you have any ideas? Is that called Liming? Thank You very much! Have a Great Day! CC
I don’t know how he does it but I can refer you to a blog site that I follow and she has tutorials on refinishing furniture. You would have to spend a little time looking at some of the posts she has done to see if you can find the finished look Randal Weeks/Aidan Gray Home achieves. I also know she is pretty good about answering questions if you email her. Here is the link:
Good luck and thanks so much for visiting!
Thank You Karen!
