A monochromatic color scheme can be a refreshing change of pace. I’m in my Blue Period right now. I love taking one paint color group and layering the variations over each other. It’s a simple way to add extra depth and complexity to any finish. You don’t have to worry about the colors being compatible as long as you stay in one family. It really is no fail.
Layering with latex paints can be risky because there is a limit to how much paint you can apply to any surface before it starts to peel. Adding several light coats of chalk, and or, milk paint has never been a problem, as long as I allow each layer time to dry.
You know I’m a blue girl at heart. For more takes on a the blue theme, be sure to check out these posts, Black and Blue (one of my absolute favorite pieces), True Blue, and, Napoleonic Blue and Graphite.
