by Amy Azzarito FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST Katy at Apartment Apothecary May 13th, 2013 I absolutely love this colour. You can spot a lot of it on historical buildings in London, especially domes. I also love how much of it you see in France on external wood like window frames and front doors. Clean, crisp and vibrant, but not overpowering or lurid. LOVE! FripperyVintage May 13th, 2013 Love verdigris especially on anything copper the contrast is so beautful. Seriously Sassy Mama May 13th, 2013 What a beautiful color. Ruth Griffiths May 13th, 2013 Such a beautiful, naturally occurring colour. I agree with the previous two comments. Left to weather, copper will turn this beautful green – the perfect complimentary colour, nature certainly knows best when it comes to colour combos! Thank you for brightening my day :-) Joel May 13th, 2013 A great color that freshens the look in any era of home. Jennifer Rizzo May 13th, 2013 It’s interesting that it says toxic in nature.I’ve read a lot of people making their own stain with pennies and vinegar. Maybe not such a great idea. jessvii May 13th, 2013 Just writing to say how much I enjoy this color of the day series! Also, I have a suggestion for a future color of the day, manganese blue. Anne May 13th, 2013 Farrow & Ball has a gorgeous shade of this called “Arsenic.” I’m soooo in love with this color! Haley May 13th, 2013 I usually just stop by Design Sponge and flip though, but I’ve started looking forward to Color of the Day, keep it up! Caro May 14th, 2013 DO you ever tell us what the HSB, RGB, CMYK, or hexadecimal equivalent is of your color-of-the-day? It would be nice if I could easily dial it up in Photoshop or Illustrator… Lauren May 14th, 2013 I love all of these. It is interesting to learn a little history behind these incredible colors. I’m going to be sad when May is over. caroline May 15th, 2013 ooh, I love learning new color names. verdigris combines both of my favorite colors (green & grey). :) LEAVE A COMMENT Design*Sponge reserves the right to restrict comments that do not contribute constructively to the conversation at hand, contain profanity, personal attacks or seek to promote a personal or unrelated business.
