What's the story?

“In Denmark, I noticed a fisher hut with a wooden facade that was, unlike the usual way in that region, not coloured with paint. You rarely see that in Scandinavia, because without a coating the surface of the wood ages quickly under the rough weather conditions. In this case, it had changed to a greyish colour and seemed heavily faded. The colour resulting from this, however, looked very nice and natural. It got the name MUTE SHADOW.“

Styling tip:

MUTE SHADOW is a light greyish brown that's inspired by nature. It works well with a muted green or pastel red such as MANGO GREEN and SUCIA ROSA. Wooden furniture and natural materials work perfectly with it. Add CONTZEN WHITE to give the room additional light.

Lars Contzen about colours:

“The beauty of a colour does not depend on a particular object. Every colour may tell a thousand stories. Use colours the way you like them best. There are colour combinations, though, that harmonize perfectly.”
