What about Barcelona Orange?


barcelona orange and paris grey copy


What better day to post about orange than on Halloween? I originally saw this on Pinterest but traced it back to archiexpo.fr.  Adding a bright color to the interior of a traditional piece makes for a modern twist. If you own a secretary in the style of Louis XV and are inspired by this combination, paint the outside with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Paris Grey. Use Barcelona Orange inside with accents of Paris Grey. Gilding wax on the edges and hardware. The result…a surprise inside that is guaranteed to make you smile.

If orange is the color you have been wanting to try on your latest find, see my posts, Doors from Italy, Opposites Attract, and Duck Egg Blue, for more inspiration.

That is so pretty it makes me want to go out tomorrow and buy a piece just so I can paint it these colors.
