Rich & Bold Old Mauve
This week we are sharing, a beautiful rich bold paint recipe, a great combination for a striking feature piece, perfect for those stand alone pieces or for a piece against a wall where you want the eye to travel to and focus on. Finish it off with a luxe gold, or with silver. Dress and pair it with luscious greenery, golds & earthy wood tones for an exotic interior story. Or pair it with black and chic decor or a large print hanging above for a more modern setting.
Any of our experienced retailers for The Artisan Company will be able to demonstrate this finish in their physical store for you. Just save the image or bookmark this page on your device and take it in and ask for a complimentary demo.
If you don't live close to a retailer we would be happy to talk you through it or you can book in for an online demonstration:
