Old Violet
  • Old Violet

    Like deep Parma violets or blue lavender, Old Violet is a wonderful 18th Century colour inspired by the colours of ancient Rome. Beautiful on its own or paired with red for a little Parisian boho.  Shown with Cream and Emperor's Silk.


    Shown on an end table with Clear Wax, surrounded by an Emperor's Silk lamp, curtains in Piano in Old Violet, and a lampshade in Old Violet + Old White.  Frottage end table done with a base coat in Old Violet, then diluted layers of Aubusson Blue and Amsterdam Green were dabbed with newspapers to create the effect.  A child's high chair is done in Old Violet, with accents in Burgundy, Cream and Provence.
