What's the story?

“Next to a cycle path along the coast towards Bordeaux, I noticed an old telescope. It was painted in an intense red that charmingly decorated the device. The red tone seemed very classical and stylishly conveyed a vintage attitude. Due to its location the shade, which is ranging between cherry red and bordeaux, got the name VIEUX BORDEAUX.“

Styling tip:

VIEUX BORDEAUX is an intense, dark cherry red that's both classic and striking in its appearance. Used moderately, it's a bold colour that can be soothed with DUSTY PORCELAIN and BOUTEILLE A LA MER.

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.”
