Named after the harbor town in Normandy, Honfleur is a color inspired by the rich warm browns found in the rustic French countryside as well as in Mid-century Modern design. This rich brown is just what you need to work with bright colors: it looks great next to Scandinavian Pink, Barcelona Orange, Giverny, Provence, Greek Blue, and Antibes Green. It can also look elegant and classical when paired with pastel Louis Blue or pretty Antoinette.

Giverny is a bright, cheery, clean, cool blue. It is near the greener range of blues, without any red in it. It is a perfect color for a modern contemporary palette, and looks great with bright, warm colors (such as Barcelona Orange and Scandinavian Pink) and cool neutrals (such as Paloma) as well as greens from the Annie Sloan range.
