March Colors

February is such a short month, we hope you got in some good painting projects with last month’s colors, Apron Strings and Arabesque. If you didn’t that’s ok! They’re not going anywhere and it’s always a good time to paint.

The March colors feel a bit like the month itself, a little cold and dreary. March can be very rainy and foggy, but it is usually broken up by a bright, sunny sky for a few days at least. Both of the March colors look great together, or on their own. Let’s take a look at Trophy and French Enamel, shall we?

TROPHY

Trophy is a warm, rich gray with yellow undertones. Unlike Shutter Grey, which is very blue, this is a truer gray reminiscent of the tarnish found on antique trophies. Layer under Grain Sack or Ironstone for a faded Swedish look.


FRENCH ENAMEL

This color is named for French enamelware pitchers, and is a vibrant, mid-tone blue. Mix it with Tricycle for a bright purple, or darken with Typewriter for a more muted dark blue. It pairs beautifully with Mustard Seed Yellow or Flow Blue.


So what do you think? Can you chase away the rainy day blues with these colors in your home?
