Burgundy is a rich deep warm red the color of dark cherries. Most of Annie’s colors are 18th and 20th century inspired but this one comes from the 19th century when the discovery of Alizarin Crimson made this color possible for the first time to a large number of people. It is now one of the classic colors used in particular for neoclassical painted furniture. Happy painting!
This is a great color as we head into fall and the holiday season. The color reminds me of the berries on mistle toe. Perfect for an accent or statement piece in your home. For those of you that enjoy using Chalk Paint for frames and signs this is a wonderful holiday color for those DIY projects (maybe even some homemade Christmas tree ornaments).
Take a look at this beautiful color in action….
