On walls, floors and furniture, fashion is faded. The paint and the patina play the transparency, the light tones are in the spotlight. A wind of authenticity and freshness blows on the house with the whitened effect in the decor.
Recreate Scandinavian charm by whitening surfaces
It is from Northern Europe that the Scandinavian trend comes to us: there, whitening the parquet floor and the furniture makes it possible to lighten the rooms as much as possible. Mixed with blond wood, Scandinavian white is warm, full of freshness and sweetness. Everything we love ! Want to change the scenery? Opt for special wood paneling patinas: they offer a palette of pure whites or subtly tinged with pink, blue or gray. They are also available in pretty natural tones (string, hemp, linen ...) and in all shades of gray, from the lightest to the darkest.

Soft and transparent shades with patinas
As faded by time, the patinas create a whitish and slightly transparent veil that reveals the veining and knots of the wood. They are used to illuminate and give character to an old-fashioned paneling, worn doors, a basement or dated curls, but also on beams, a floor, furniture, a railing or steps. On the walls, one opts for a colorless or pigmented glaze (Ressource or Eleonore deco). Applied to a traditional painting, it whitens, nuance, brings depth.
Ceruse and glaze new generation
No need to be a pro to succeed patina. To whiten or gray a piece of furniture, a special white lead (Bondex) is applied with a brush, then wiped with a rag. For a more authentic effect, sand the edges and edges of the piece of furniture a bit. On the floor, we roll the new "Badigeon" of Liberon dyed "Nordic white", "Scandinavian gray" or "Winter in Oslo", a beautiful gray smoked. Another launch of the brand this year, the "whitened effect" for paneling and woodwork: a tinted base on which is applied to the sponge a milky finish. Subtle.
