Two shades of green and so totally different – Annie Sloan Antibes and Florence. They are both a lot of fun to play with but really give two totally different looks.
I have only used Antibes on a secretary and on the Emerald Dresser. It is a true pop of green and I feel it lends itself to the farmhouse or fun pieces. I don’t see it on an elegant french dresser but I may be wrong! It is really strong and is great to mix into other colors or use as a wash with blue.
Florence is a deeper hue and is perfect to layers with blues or greys. It pairs really well with Provence. I tend to darken it with a glaze or wax to give it a true aged look. It is perfect to use for that old, aged, European finish.

I haven’t used either color yet. They are both so beautiful, but I feel a bit intimidated by them. Your photos give me inspiration to try both once I find the right piece. Yours turned out gorgeous!
Patricia, you are super talented and never, ever be intimidated by a color lol! You of all people can handle it!
You are so right about these two colors…”two shades of green but totally different.” Both are really great colors, however they each send a different mood and style. I really liked that you gave examples of pairings with each color, that is a great help for anyone trying match up colors.
