I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a blue girl, and this month I’m sharing one of my favourite shades of Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan Provence. It was the first colour I used from the Annie Sloan colour palette, and one I return to regularly.
Provence was inspired by the blue greens of the south of France, where shutters and doors are painted in these hues, some bright and some faded. It works beautifully for a modern look, and is a particular favourite of those looking for a beachy style. Below left is my very first piece completed with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan, I still remember thinking as I started to paint that I’d never go back to that old aqua enamel again!! The one on the right is a similar dresser I completed more recently, and you can really see the depth of colour there compared to the bright white drawer liner! That one went off to provide more storage in a little girls room who just loved aqua!
When using Provence, I’m reminded of summer; it’s a beautifully fresh colour that pairs perfectly with either Pure or Old White. As you can see in the picture below, it really does make a stunning combination! You can see more of this beautiful makeover at Me and Mrs Jones, here.
Ever since seeing a Chalk Painted piano some years ago I’ve been pinning away for one of my own. I’m always put off by the hassle of transport, but what I wouldn’t give to have one in my home, all ready for me to paint! The one below is just divine, Provence coupled with dark wax, and not to mention chevron, and its a beautifully modern take on a vintage piece.
