Color Relationships

Inspiration today comes from Joss & Main. Using muted greens and yellows creates a style reminiscent of old world furniture on this new, reproduction, chest of drawers.  To recreate a similar look, layer Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® colors Chateau Grey and Versailles on the frame and Arles on the drawers. Finish with Clear Wax. Dark Wax adds another level of depth and complexity to the simple green and yellow color palette. New and old in combination.

I am loving these colors. I already have olive in my bedroom and have been using Country Gray base with Versailles as second coat with a little wet distress (it tends to soften the olive up some) on my nightstands and headboard. My next project for my bedroom/bathroom is to turn a old dresser into my bathroom vanity and I am thinking these colors would be excellent for the dresser and work well with the olive yet add a little pop of color. Thank you for the inspiration!!
