Swedish Style

A warm grey sets the tone for a Gustavian palette

Hi Deb,
This was a photo I found on Pinterest and used as inspiration. But if I were duplicating this look which I think is easy to do with Chalk Paint. I would paint a solid coat of French Linen first. Then a wash of Scandinavian Pink. Then accents of Provence and Louis Blue. Finally Old White for highlights, edges and anywhere where the paint would be worn. Definitely clear wax. If I had the colors the way I wanted them I would probably skip the dark wax. If I did use it it would be minimal only in the corners and crevices. Dark Wax is a bit of a wild card for me because it doesn’t just create shadows. The dark has a greenish tint under the brown,(I hope this makes sense) and sometimes I feel it makes things too green. Thanks for asking. I hope this helps. Leslie
