Duck Egg : The careful balance between blue and green
Artisan Dark Egg is the name but this versatile Artisan colour is so much more than your standard Duck Egg, it's soft, elegant and restful all wrapped together. This was a colour we took time to carefully craft using our advanced technology to incorporate quality pigments in; as little as 0.01 of a ml to get the colour just right.
Artisan Duck Egg is a careful balance of green and blue with gentle grey undertones, we did 15 iterations of this colour before we got it the way we wanted it.
Rich in pigments it sits on a fine and gentle line between green and blue.
Depending on the surrounding colours and lighting it will adjust beautifully to tone in with its environment. It will appear more of a green blue in darker areas (south facing rooms) and more of a blue green in a well lit north facing room, under warm artificial lighting it will adjust to a beautiful soft and warm green blue, the subtle nuances in this colour drifts elegantly between a soft pale blue and a soft pale green.
Artisan Duck Egg is extremely versatile in interiors, being able to sit in both a blue or green accented home. It can work beautifully in coastal style homes as well as botanical styled homes, it can work in Scandinavian styled interiors as well as french styled interiors, a stunning colour as it is; available in Matte Estate (wall paint) Velvet Luxe- Hybrid Chalk Paint and Premium Chalk Paint.
When it comes to decorative painting with Premium Chalk Paint in this colour there are so many beautiful ways to interpret it, but here in the photos we simply show two versions :
- DARK WAX: Ages beautifully in dark wax adding further warmth and veering the colour to more of an aged soft Green - Blue, a classic french style combination with a hint of gold
- IMPERIAL LINEN COLOURED WAX: A fresh and restful finish, lighten and brightened with an imperial linen coloured wax appearing more of Blue-green and sitting in a more contemporary styled finish
- The background is simply Artisan Duck Egg in Velvet Luxe a colour that is stunning as it is
Whether it's furniture, walls or the outdoors this gorgeous colour is available in the full range and is well worth considering for those who love green or blue or both. A carefully crafted Artisan Duck Egg.
