Introduction to Olympic

The Olympic colour scheme is popularly used to paint physical objects such as walls and furniture. It looks good on wood furniture such as drawers, counters, cabinets and wooden walls.

The colours also go well with historical and New England style exteriors. When these colours are used for photo editing, paintbrush textures can be used to enhance their effects.

Antique Silver

The first colour in the Olympic Colour Scheme is Antique Silver. This colour can either be described as a saturated, warm, mulberry grey with a royal blue undertone or as a deep-toned grey with hints of blue and violet.

Apart from the Olympic Colour Scheme, Antique Silver also goes well with white and warm rich lighting. As an exterior, this colour is popularly used as the overall body or as trim for a lighter blue-grey or light tan/yellow exterior.

As a paint, Antique Silver is part of the Dulux colour range (DLX1002-5 | LRV: 27) and PPG Paints (PPG1002-5).

Delicate White

Delicate White can either be described as a pale, true, winter white with a non-existent undertone or a rich, but soft white. It is a perfect paint colour for a main wall, trim or accent. It can be paired with almost any colour.

As a paint, Delicate White is part of the Dulux colour range (DLX1001-1 | LRV: 88) and PPG Paints (PPG1001-1).

Blue Cloud

The last colour in the Olympic Colour Scheme is Blue Cloud. This colour can either be described as a deep, neutral, twilight blue-purple with a lavender undertone or a deep-toned grey with hints of blue and violet.

On its own Blue Cloud is a perfect paint colour for a New England-style exterior, either the main colour or as trim. Apart from the Olympic Colour Scheme, Blue Cloud can also be paired with a lighter, blue-grey colour.

As a paint, Blue Cloud is part of the Dulux colour range (DLX1164-6 | LRV:17) and PPG Paints (PPG1164-6).

On-screen colour representations are not necessarily precise representations of actual paint colours due to variance in monitor calibrations.
