A frequently asked question that I get is:
“What’s the difference between……”
Ironstone, Linen, and Grain Sack?
Ironstone was created for Marian’s love for Ironstone, and it is a crisp, bright white, not too gray- not too yellow.
Linen is one of my personal favorites, creamy and aged, it is the perfect shade of aged off-white.
Grain sack is my best friend when I can’t decide between gray and white. It is muted, soft, and just a bit deeper than white. Not too gray- not too white.
Boxwood, Luckett’s Green, and Kitchen Scale?
Boxwood is NOT hunter green! It is darker than a grass green, but still fresh and modern enough to give your piece a new life.
Luckett’s is soft, fun, and a bit deeper than a sage green.
Kitchen scale is another personal favorite. Aged teal that gives a pop of color with out being too loud.
And the blues:
Eulalie’s sky, French Enamel, Flow Blue, and Artissimo.
Eulalie’s is the aqua lovers dream.
French Enamel is lighter, Flow is deeper. I compare them to a regular shade of jeans- and flow blue is my dark wash!
Artissimo is a midnight blue that will make the navy lover in you rejoice!
Hopefully these “side by side” comparisons will aide you in choosing between these popular pallets!
Here are some pieces I have done in my favorites:
