Chalk Paint™ Greens in All Their Glory

One of Annie's favourite pieces that shows green to its full glory is this botanical beauty!
Painted by Annie Sloan's former Painter in Residence Agnieszka Krawczyk, it looks gorgeously rustic and modern at the same time. Agnieszka used Antibes Green, Graphite and Amsterdam Green.

Amsterdam Green Chalk Paint™

This strong, deep green takes inspiration from the painted shutters and doors of Amsterdam. It works particularly well with whites and creams and botanical imagery and plants, as well as looking brilliant with earthy yellows and reds – try teaming it with Primer Red, Arles and Old Ochre. It’s also makes a great backdrop to cool blues, such as Provence, Giverny and the purple tones of Emile.

Amsterdam is a beautiful mixing colour. Below it's mixed with Pure White.

Antibes Green Chalk Paint™

The neoclassical palette included this bright green, sometimes pure and sometimes lightened with white. The colour is also found on rustic country furniture from Ireland and the south of France – a look which is beautifully achieved with Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax. For a warehouse look, try Black Chalk Paint™ Wax.

  

Chalk Paint™ is great on wood, metal and upholstery!

Here, Antibes Green is mixed with Old White for some gorgeous mint tints.

Antibes Green added to Florence results in a deep emerald. Tints can then be made by adding different amounts of Old White to the custom color.

Lem Lem, Annie Sloan's Newest Green

A soft, warm green, inspired by fields of alliums that Annie saw in Ethiopia, grown by women farmers who are supported by Oxfam’s Ethiopian Seed Project. This limited edition colour is great for creating a retro 50's look, and works well as part of a vintage floral style.

COMING SOON! FRILE

Firle is one of three exclusive colours Annie has created as a part of the Annie Sloan with Charleston collaboration. Firle is a fresh, zesty and crisp green which echoes the gorgeous distemper of the wall surrounding the mantelpiece in Clive Bell’s study.
