Aubergine Landscape

By Wanda McKenna, Mrs at Monkey Décor in Navan, MH, IE

Can there be a better mix of colours than aubergines, purples and gold?

This little bureau was spotted by Judith , my lovely customer, and it was my job then to make it extra special. The inspiration for it came from Alex Gold Art works and I thought it would be perfect to make this little piece pop. I used multiple custom mixes of purple from warm tones inside to cooler tones on the outside with gold leaf running along and merging them all together. I used GF Linen to brighten up deep purples and add shading. Everything was then varnished wit GF satin.
