The typical Swedish color 🏡

“Falu rödfärg” = red color from Falun (a biproduct from the copper mine) , today they have more colors than red though and many different manufacturers. They started making it in the 16th century and it contains over 20 minerals that conserve the wood (it’s a type of red calcimine) and it is one of the oldest and most popular house paints. 

Lots of houses in Sweden are red with white details, it actually feels like most houses are…  

It gives a nice velvet smooth finish in an almost brick like red tone, and it is really easy to work with.
