Mixology Monday – Love Green

Mixology Monday is back!  Not every Monday, maybe once a month.  Today’s color is one I saw on Instagram.  Our Retailer in Yucaipa, California, Loved Furniture, posted it.  They described it as a  smoky green and I agree.  This dark olive green immediately spoke to me as a great color to layer with when wanting to create a vintage look.

They used Beckley Coal and Middleton Mustard to create it.   Black and yellow make green!

I pulled out my supplies to replicate it. For today’s Mixology Monday, I used 3 parts Middleton Mustard to 1 part (by volume) Beckley Coal and think I got pretty close to the color they created.

I chose Love Green for the name because Loved Furniture created it.  You know that all of our colors are based on a town, state, region in the US.  Did you know that there are six towns named LOVE in the US?

Love, La Paz County, Arizona, U.S.A.
Love, Bureau County, Illinois, U.S.A.
Love, Butler County, Kentucky, U.S.A.
Love, DeSoto County, Mississippi, U.S.A.
Love, Cass County, Texas, U.S.A.
Love, Augusta County, Virginia (after all, as their motto says, “Virginia Is For Lovers”)

You can follow Loved Furniture on Instagram at lovedfurniture.  Are you following us on Instagram?  Click HERE to follow us.

On Wednesday, we will have a new entry into our glossary.  As usual, my thoughts spilled out and morphed into way more info than I planned.

Until the next Mixology Monday, I hope you do your own color mixing.  Pull out two unrelated colors and mix then and see what your create.

Peace,
