Think of a large, ripe orange. This is the colour of Barcelona Orange. Apply dark wax and the colour becomes a luscious burnt orange. Its warmth and vivacity is a great accompaniment to neutral tones such as our greeny sludge colour, Château Grey or to the cool silveriness of Paris Grey as well as Aubusson Blue, its deep complementary partner. It is perfect for many interiors but particularly with the 1960s vintage look.
Add Old White to make Papagena.
Add equal parts of Old White and Barcelona Orange to tone down the colour to make it a little pretty and flowery like the character, Papagena in Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
Large, low table painted in Aubusson Blue with a good covering coat of Barcelona Orange, waxed and rubbed well to make certain that the blue colour comes through in parts.
The rich deepness of Olive is the perfect partner for the vibrancy of Barcelona Orange like a Mediterranean hillside planted with orange trees.
In contrast to the colours on the left, the combination of Barcelona Orange and Antionette is a very contemporary combination.
