An email from Sherwin Williams caught our eye the other day, Pottery Barn’s Fall Color Palette. We get a lot of our inspiration from both Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware, so we were really excited to see what the new seasonal colors would be. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed.

There’s the basic neutrals, roughly translated to Old White, Pure White, Old Ochre, French Linen in Chalk Paint lingo…and then there were several that stood out, ones that we’re now aching to mix with Chalk Paint® and put on furniture for the season and beyond. So rather than keep it a secret, here’s how to mix some of my favorite colors from Pottery Barn’s new palette:

1 part Duck Egg Blue to 1 part Pure White. This is a great year-round color, and would go well with any style or decor.

1 part Duck Egg Blue to 1 part Louis Blue. A touch darker than the above color, this strikes me more as a coastal or Federal blue. A little stormy, a good “bold” neutral that could go with a lot of other colors.

1 part Paris Grey, 3 parts Graphite. Perfect for updating brass lamps, this soft, subtle charcoal would make a nice modern accent color.


purple chalk paint

1 part Aubusson Blue, 1 part Primer Red, 1 part Graphite. This muted eggplant is simply stunning. I can see using it stenciled over Old White on the front of a dresser, or as the color peeking through on a 2-tone distress.


navy blue chalk paint

1 part Aubusson Blue, 1 part Graphite. This deep, rich blue looks very modern when paired with Pure White, or more country when paired with Old Ochre. Either way, we love this amazing blue!

1 part Barcelona Orange, 1 part Emperor’s Silk. Not just for Halloween anymore, oranges like this are the hot color for fall. Picture this color peeking through a crackle finish with the blue above on top. Very chic.

Happy mixing!
