Chalk Paint™ Inspiration – Paris Grey

This month’s Chalk Paint™ Inspiration is Paris Grey!

Paris Grey

Paris Grey is inspired by the painted furniture found in elegant French châteaux or old Swedish manor houses. It’s a light dove grey, a cool colour with definite blue undertones, which makes it a perfect partner for Pure White, as in the piece below. By comparison, the yellow undertone of Old White doesn’t work quite so well.

Paris Grey & White Cabinet

This has to be one of my favourite shades, a silvery colour that works beautifully in coastal, Hamptons or french provincial style homes. The mirror below was one of my most popular pieces; highlighting the details in pure white gave it a soft feminine character and showed of those flourishes!
