Debra,
I’m not too excited either, but it is an easy color to work with.
Cheers,

It’s beautiful! Great color for an accent piece. My twenty-something daughter is into this color already!

Personally love it! But, I love Primer Red too. How would the new Burgundy work shaded?

Carole,
Yes absolutely. In fact Annie saw it as a mixture of the two colors. You have a good eye for color. Happy Holidays,
Cheers,

Wow! What a huge improvement over this past years color – Radiant Orchid. That was a horrible color for interiors – or clothing!

I love the marsala color. I also love the buffet you have painted in a muted shade of scandinavian pink/primer red. Would you please let me know if you blended the two or did you brush the pink on top of the red to get the look?

Are these inspiration photos or did you actually use these paints on these pieces to achieve these looks on each piece. I have a client who wants me to paint a dresser just like dresser who have featured with Primer Red, SP, French LInen and Old Ochre. Were these the actual colors used on this piece? Would you share how you did it. She really wants this!!
