I have used Annie Sloans Henrietta to change a boring cherry-red toned set of shelves into a playful pink piece! Henrietta is a mix of pinks, lilacs and mauves, a pretty and soft colour. Here are some pieces I found to highlight its abilities...
Swoon Worthy Boutique
Old House True Love
And look at these pops of a similar shade used in these beautiful rooms....
You may think on first glance that it isn't your cup of tea, but by using a grey wash inside the shelves, the colour acts very differently. Could work amazingly as quirky kitchen or linen storage? These colours are so versatile with blues, greens, creams etc...go on, think outside the box!
