This is a soft and slightly bluish grey, and is the colour most associated with painted furniture in an elegant French chateau and of an old Swedish manor house. It works like a dream with Old White of course but it looks great distressed over the lavender blue of Old Violet and one of our other favourites is Paris Grey over Cream. Or for something a little stronger try it over Arles! Add a touch of gilding, and the look is complete.
Beautiful with clear and dark wax, or try mixing Graphite Chalk Paint into your clear wax for a sophisticated antiqued look.
