Annie Sloan Versailles.
A soft delicate lightly yellowed dusky green that is sophisticated and gentle yet it works well with modern pieces too. Versailles is a colour which picks up other colours well and changes character accordingly. With Louis Blue, lightened Henrietta, Cream, Original and Old Whites it looks back to the French court of Versailles but with Provence, Duck Egg Blue and Coco it is a sassy modern colour.
A really subtle colour. Looks good with just clear wax or if you want more depth to the colour a touch of dark wax.
Annie Sloan Scandinavian Pink is such an underrated colour.Don’t let the mention of “pink” put you off trying this colour. One of the traditional colours found in much Swedish furniture which can be used it underneath many colours or try it using it in interiors of cupboards and drawers.
Looks good under Old Ochre, Old White and Paris Grey.
Annie Sloan Provence Chalk Paint.
Blue green shutters in the South of France are the inspiration for this colour. Set against walls of any of the whites. Provence needs light and bright fabrics with a Mediterranean and seaside feel. Other paint colours that work with Provence also need to have the same freshness and strength. Of course a cupboard painted Provence looks great against a wall of Old White.
Annie Sloan Promer Red
This is a colour which has recently found its way into my palette.It has been sitting on shelf winking at me for some time.It is a wonderful colour for layering and is totally cool just on its own.
Deep red ochre is a colour found in practically every culture from Venetian palaces to Vietnamese temples. Red earths were plentiful and relatively easy to come by so the colour is often associated with the colour for priming furniture and as the base coat for gilding. It is a wonderful colour on its own or as a base for other colours particularly when distressing.
Annie Sloan Paris Grey Chalk Paint.
A very popular choice of colour,it is a soft and slightly
bluish grey, and is the colour most associated with painted
furniture in an elegant French Chateau.
It works like a dream with Old White but it looks great
distressed over the lavender blue of Old Violet and one
of our other favourites is Paris Grey over Cream or for
something a little stronger try it over Arles!
Add a touch of gilding, and the look is complete!
Annie Sloan describes Paloma as “a beautiful
sophisticated warm grey taupe with a great
deal of depth, made by mixing two
complementary colours, purple and yellow with
white.” A wonderful accompaniment for Emile.
A definite deep green with a yellowish tinge
This really is a true, deep olive green.Green is actually the easiest colour on the human eye? It is all around us in nature. Greens create calm and centre us. Olive Green in has become one of the preferred colours for most interior designers.
Personally I prefer to add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Olive. This is more the colour of pale olive leaves.Try it and see what I mean.
