Blue-green shutters in the South of France are the inspiration for this colour. Set against walls of any of the whites, Provençe needs light and bright fabrics with a Mediterranean and seaside feel. Other paint colours that work with Provençe also need to have the same freshness and strength. A cupboard painted with Provençe looks great against a wall of Old White.

Provençe works well with Aubusson Blue.

Add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Provençe;e turns this Mediterranean colour into a soft, English, pale blue-green suitable for day watching cricket.

A vintage French table painted in Provençe – a little water was added to make it smooth as no distressing was wanted – then waxed. Adorable!

shutters painted in Provençe

Provençe is based on all those beautiful shutters and doors you see in the South of France. They are all a bit like this – sometimes a little more green (add Antibes Green) or sometimes a little more blue (add Duck Egg Blue) or paler (add Old White) or a little more muted (add Country Grey).
