The colors that are used in vintage furniture to achieve this effect are white, beige or gray, often mixed together. Even stakes are to give color and other parts that are not using an ivory shade, sand or pearl gray. Also often they use pastel colors so it looks like if the furniture was dusty but elegantly. To create this effect the best colors are green, pale blue and lavender.

Moreover, we can not only achieve this atmosphere with our furniture but it would be good to use fabrics such as linen, hemp or cotton and combine everything with iron or wooden objects to make it even more beautiful.
