Day 2: Henrietta vs. Duck Egg | Maine Country Home

Did you catch the winner of yesterday’s mash-up between Aubusson Blue and Coco? Who do you think won?

It was a close battle, but…


We absolutely love painting with Aubusson Blue. It fits in just about any style of decor, and adds an air of sophistication to whatever it’s painted over. The perfect amount of green and blue, we love to use it as an alternative to your traditional coastal blue palette. Pair it with Arles and Cream and it becomes more cottage, but with Chateau Grey and Country Grey it takes on a more traditional neo-classical tone.

But enough about yesterday’s color, we’re talking about today! The battle between Henrietta and Duck Egg Blue!

Henrietta: The Grand Tours of the 18th Century brought this colour into the finest houses of Europe as part of gentle neoclassical schemes and was combined with other strong pastels.

Duck Egg Blue: This soft greenish blue stems from the first discovery of a good blue pigment in the 18th Century, which was then lightened with white. It can be described as a Rococo blue, as nothing says French and Swedish interiors quite like this color.
