Annie Sloan recently launched THREE new colors based on her visit to The Charleston House, a well-known home for artists in the UK.
We are SMITTEN with them because they are as usual super rich, saturated colors that look gorgeous at home on walls, floors, and furniture. The first of the three is called “Rodmell”…Rodmell is a damson purple, influenced by the painterly washes of twilight shades on the Studio walls, the creative hub of the farmhouse for over 50 years.
We recently used Rodmell to update a Vintage Twin Headboard in the shop (Briana did this one!) and we love how it turned out! See below. She paired it with Original and Provence for an ombre look!
The next color is called “Firle“…Firle is a fresh, zesty and crisp green which echoes the gorgeous distemper of the wall surrounding the mantelpiece in Clive Bell’s study.
We liken it to a Spring Green…a pop of baby asparagus greens or a citrus-y lime peel. It looks elegant with gold and dark blue (such as the Aubusson pictured below.) We love the example below, painted by Maisies House!
The last color of the new trio inspired by Charleston is called “Tilton“…Tilton is a deep, earthy mustard inspired by the beautifully painted circle motif on Vanessa Bell’s decorative wardrobe from 1917 in Charleston Farmhouse.
What we love the most about Tilton is that it’s a sunflower yellow color, much different from English Yellow and Arles. We can’t wait to use it on a larger scale! Perhaps a new wall in the studio!
We are loving all the new products Annie has been releasing lately and there are more to come!! Shhhh…. 😉 Annie Sloan will be visiting our area in May for the Country Living Fair. Stay tuned for more details…maybe we will see you there!
