We are getting new awesome Annie Sloan paint color named Lem Lem. Lem Lem was inspired when visiting Oxfam GB’s Ethiopian Seed Project earlier this year. Lem Lem is a soft green which came from the fields of alliums, the name means ‘to flourish’ in Amharic.
We are accepting pre-orders for quart size cans and sample sizes.
Giverny is soft, bright, cool blue, great for your next project. This shade of blue goes well with bright, warm colors, as well as different shades of green from Annie Sloan range. Honfleur was inspired by the rich warm browns found in the rusitc French countryside as well as in Mid-century modern design. This shade of brown is ideal for bright colors. Goes great with Barcelona Orange, Scandinavian Pink, and Greek Blue just to name a Did I mention that the name came from the barbour town in Normandy, Honfleur. This is a strong deep green, which was inspired by the painted shutters and doors of Amsterdam. Work particularly well with whites and creams, don’t forget earthy reds and yellows. A good team up for this color would be Primer Red, Arles and Old Ochre.
Antibes is a grassy green color if used correctly can make objects pop and make a warmer environment. This comes to our palette from two sources – the neo-classical palaces, such as the Fontainebleau Palace and in Schloss Charlottenburg in Potsdam, and from the villages around Provence where countless artists have been inspired by the colours of painted furniture, shutters and doors. Antibes Green looks stunning with dark wax
Antoinette is a soft pink which looks very good in many surfaces. This shade of pink can be used anywhere from kids room to your kitchen and living room. Old fashioned roses and the colour of old plaster. This is a soft pale pink with a hint of brown in it so the pink is not too sweet.
The inspiration is the rich glowing yellow is the color associated with the town of Arles in the South of France. It is a rich yellow ochre with a hint of orange juice and with with Old White added the color is warm and gentle. It is a sophisticated yellow.
Aubusson is a mid tone blue, which is a rich blue yet not overpowering or strong. This color can complement light and dark colors well. The color is named and designed after the beautiful deep grey blue found on the classic 18th and 19th century Aubusson rugs from France. It is an elegant colour that works well with many colours as it is a dark neutral but in particular it works with Paris Grey . It is also a colour found in Scandinavian painted furniture.
Think of a large ripe orange and this is the colour of Barcelona Orange. Apply dark wax and the colour becomes a luscious burnt orange. Its warmth and vivacity is a great accompaniment to neutral tones such as our greeny sludge colour, Chateau Grey or to the cool silveriness of Paris Grey as well as Aubusson Blue, its deep complementary partner. It is perfect for many interiors but particulalry with the 1960s vintage look.
A rich deep warm red the color of dark cherries. Most of my colours are 18th and 20th century inspired but this one comes from the 19th century when the discovery of Alizarin Crimson made this colour possible for the first time to a large number of people. It is now one of the classic colors used in particular for neo-classical painted furniture.
Chateau Grey is very beautiful light grey which acts like a neutral color making the possibilities endless. An elegant greyed green, this is the color found in French woodwork.
Coco is a warmed grey brown, the color found in old French furniture. When we used this color in our workshop it was a huge hit. Coco looks amazing when you paint two coats then apply a wash of Old White over it, remember to wet surface first before applying the wash, then wipe off.
This is a putty color using greenish raw umber, and is a really useful color. It ‘s terrific on its own and with white as in the chair pictured here, or for distressing as a top coat with Cream or Scandinavian Pink underneath. It is generally seen as a more rustic colour good for a country look rather than the château
A soft pale warm creamy yellow the color of clotted cream. We suggest you use it under Paris Grey or of course on its own perhaps with Old White on edgings and details.
A greenish soft blue reminiscent of Rococo French and Swedish interiors. It looks wonderful and fresh with Old White, used over Chateau Grey and Aubusson Blue.
A warm soft aubergine color with pink red undertones giving a rich complexity that makes beautiful sophisticated lilac tones when Old White is added. It is a color that adds a contemporary facet to the palette being a color used by the Charleson artists as well as a color used by Robert Adam in the 18th century after visiting Pompeii.
Emperors silk is a stunning rich red which simply looks gorges. This color looks very good on many surfaces, as well as, adding an element of sophistication to the piece.
This is a bright pure red like the red silk lining of a jacket. We love it used as a interior of a cupboard or drawer. It is named after the red of China but best of all, we love one piece in a room painted with this stunning colour maybe deepened with some dark wax in places.
This clean yellow was particularly popular in English 18th Century decoration inspired by hand painted Chinese wallpaper and the development of Chrome Yellow pigment. It was the first non earthy yellow and a first would be very expensive. In the 1950s this yellow became popular as a strong primrose. It can be mixed with Antibes Green to make lime green.
This is inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. In the 17th and 18th century it was used as a color made with verdigris but as it is a very fugitive color turning black with time so we are not aware of how it was used on woodwork in many houses. It is a classical colour found in classical Italian furniture.
A cool neutral khaki grey inspired by bleached deep neutral of old pieces of French and Italian furniture. It works beautifully with golds and a range of rich and bright colours such as Emile and Emperor’s Silk. French Linen is a soft creamy brown almost whitewash. This color makes the hardwood brown pop, and looks stunning. If you want to find a color that goes well with your natural hardwood this might be the perfect color for you.
Graphite is a soft black made with purplish blues and brown and is not completely black. When waxed it becomes a beautiful black like dark slate.
This is a warm blue without any green in it. It is a color found throughout the Mediterranean, often faded and distressed on shutters and woodwork. It has a chalky look about it yet it is a strong positive color.
A beautiful rich complex pink with a hint of lilac. It’s a sophisticated color used in its full strength but with Old White added it stays an interesting color and without being too ‘cupcake’.
Want a slight hint of color? Louis Blue might do the trick. This shade of blue is very light sky blue, it’s not overpowering but can make your furniture pop.A pretty pastel blue works particularly well when waxed with a dark brown.
This is a rich and regal classical blue with a lot of depth of color particularly when it is waxed to bring out the sheen so it has a silky look to it. It’s called after Napoleon because it is one of the powerful colors he liked to use in his apartments. Use it with metallics, with one of the whites for a fresh look, with Antibes Green or with French Linen.
A soft warm neutral that can be dark waxed to make the color of old French painted woodwork. Like deep Parma violets or blue lavender it is a wonderful 18th century color used for coloring the inside of furniture- like the lining of a jacket – or for using with as the base with Paris Grey on top and distressed. The color of chalk and gesso, a cool soft white without pink or yellow in it. A color which works with everything but for the quintessential French look use it over Paris Grey. We also suggest mixing it to the other colors to make them the exact tone for your room.
Deep green with a yellowish tinge.
ADD OLD WHITE – to make ‘Lisbon’ : Add 8 parts of Old White and 1 part of Olive for the color of pale olive leaves which reminds me of LISBON the beautiful capital of Portugal.
Paloma is a light shade of purple which goes extremely well with this side table. This shade of purple has many possibilities and potential in what type of things it can be used in. This is a beautiful sophisticated warm grey taupe with a great deal of depth, made by mixing two complementary colours, purple and yellow with white.
This is a soft and slightly bluish grey, and is the colour most associated with painted furniture in an elegant French chateau and of an old Swedish manor house. It works like a dream with Old White
of course 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.
Deep red ochre is a color found in practically every culture from Venetian palaces to Vietnamese temples. Red earths were plentiful and relatively easy to come by so the color is often associated with the color for priming furniture and as the base coat for gilding. It is a wonderful color on its own or as a base for other colors particularly when distressing.
Provence is a light blue which is mostly found on child furniture and can complement many colors. As shown in the picture its goes well with Antibes which is a grassy green color. Find your own combination for Provence. 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.
Quite simply a pure clean white.
One of the traditional colors found in much Swedish furniture we use it underneath and as a color for interiors of cupboards and drawers.
Soft delicate lightly yellowed dusky green that is sophisticated and gentle yet it works well with modern pieces too. This is a color which picks up other colors 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 color.
