I typically do not do custom colors because it’s quiet a process and I am not able to do it with my work load at this time. I did have an interior design client come to me and ask me to do a Cornish Blue bedroom set for her client. I said yes because she brought me a handsome set of pieces!
Annie Sloan has a recipe for Cornish Blue on her site, but as I have found out in the past it still requires experimentation to get the color that suits the client.
I work directly on the piece to test samples because I know that I can cover them easily with the chosen color and also match it as I go along.
The darker colors always take a bit more work. This is what it looked like when I opened the Greek Blue, which is the primary color for Cornish Blue.
Is that purple?
Stir, stir, stir. Cornish Blue is a combination of Greek Blue & Old White.
The client settled on a color and I was so pleased with the result. These pieces will be place in a beach house. Perfect color.
The nightstands were done in Old White.
Don’t be scared to experiment with your own pieces if you are looking for something bold.
