The Wedgwood House.

A few months ago, a fellow collector contacted me about Wedgwood colors, as they had chosen to paint the interiors of their house in the soft shades of Pale Blue, Lilac, Primrose Yellow and Sage Green, and then use Crimson Red for a feature.

They asked for my assistance in determining paint colors to use, so I put together a small guide which cross-referenced the desired Jasper colors against the PANTONE® system. With the PANTONE® codes, the paint retailer would be able to recreate these colors in the form of interior house paint.

Here is a miniature of the guide I created at the time:

Because the color of Jasper varies slightly with each passing decade, I had to determine the best final color match by averaging the color values which I had sampled across several pieces in my collection.
