Let's chat about one of the newer colors in the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® line: Svenska Blue. The cool blue-gray toned Svenska Blue paint is named after Sweden (Svenska is the Swedish word for, well, Swedish) and the muted color brings to mind Swedish manor houses in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Svenska Blue is the new formula of the old United States Duck Egg color that you may be familiar with. If you’ve bought Duck Egg in the U.S. in the past and want to recreate that color, you’ll want to use the new Svenska.
Svenska Blue has more of a blue tone than the new green-tinged Duck Egg Blue. Confused? Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the two paint colors showing the difference!
Note that screens show colors differently, so if you're torn between the two, order a the Annie Sloan Color Chart for the most accurate color representation. Or try a sample pot!
Svenska Blue Pairs Well With: Old Violet, Primer Red, Amsterdam Green, and Olive
