Day 3: Old Ochre vs. Scandinavian Pink | Maine Country Home

OLD OCHRE: a faded darkened cream color seen on old French painted furniture, woodwork and door exteriors. Apply Annie Sloan Dark Wax to make the color more intense and evocative of Paris, or keep it clean as a neutral foil to other colors. Modern, cottage, French, Scandinavian, country…Old Ochre is at home in any style of decor. A wonderful complement to warm up your color palette.

SCANDINAVIAN PINK: inspired by the traditional colors found in Swedish furniture. Use it underneath pale neutrals like Old Ochre or Old White. It also works beautifully as a color for the interior of cupboards and drawers. Pairs really well with Aubusson Blue as well, try using Scandinavian Pink as your base under a crackle finish.

These two colors work amazingly together, but today it’s all about who your favorite is! Cast your vote on here, and then head over to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to vote again! Remember, bonus points if you share a photo of something you’ve painted in either color.
