Scandinavian rust red signs

Have you ever been to any of the Scandinavian countries? Then you may have seen the typical, rust red wooden houses in the countryside. You usually find them in Sweden, and the specific colour actually origins from Sweden as well, from a town called Falun to be specific. That color is the same one as you can find in our Lighthouse collection, and it looks great on the typical Scandinavian house, but it looks great on other types of houses as well.

The sign on the photo above belongs to the blog owner of the blog Oline art. The photo is hers as well, but I think the sign is lovely and I wanted to show it to you all, and I thought it would be a good idea to show it to you while recommending the blog to you. It’s a really nice blog with some really nice photos. You will discover that it’s a great mix of crafting projects, nature, family life and DIY, and I’m sure you will love it, even though the posts are written in Danish.

Now, back to the Lighthouse sign… Do you like the rust red color? I think it’s nice! Much more unique than a common red if you ask me. But then again, color preferences are always individual, and that’s why I have to ask you  all a question. If you could create your own enamel sign, regardless of available choices… What colors would you choose?
