There is only One Chalk Paint®

If you want to recreate the painted French & Swedish and Modern Vintage look on furniture where the paintwork shows a patina of history, Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint is perfect for these applications. The paint is soft and easy to patinate using our soft wax to give it a beautiful soft and protective finish. Like all Annie Sloan paints the colors have been mixed in such a way that allows mixing and being lighted an layering without the colors dulling.

Antoinette
Inspired by old fashioned roses and the color of old plaster. This is a soft pale pink with a hint of brown in it so the pink is not too sweet.

Antebes Green
The inspiration for Antebes Green comes from 2 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.

Arles
The inspiration is the rich glowing yellow color associated with the town of Arles in the South of France. It is a rich yellow ochre with a hint of “orange juice” mixed with Old White to create a warm and gentle hue. It is a sophisticated yellow.

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 colors of painted furniture, shutters and doors.

Aubusson Blue
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 color that works well with many colors as it is a dark neutral but in particular it works with Paris Grey . It is also a color found in Scandinavian painted furniture

Barcelona Orange
Think of a large ripe orange and this is the color of Barcelona Orange. Apply dark wax and the color becomes a luscious burnt orange. Its warmth and vivacity is a great accompaniment to neutral tones such as our Chateau Grey or to the cool hues of Paris Grey as well as Aubusson Blue, its deep complementary partner. It is perfect for many interiors but especially with the 1960s vintage look.

Burgandy (New Color – Coming Soon!)
A rich deep warm red the colour 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 colours used in particular for neo-classical painted furniture.

Château Grey
An elegant greyed green, this is the color found in French woodwork.

Coco
An warm greyed brown, the color found on old French woodwork.

Country Grey
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 color good for a country look rather than the château. Another way to use it is to mix it into another color such as Château Grey or Duck Egg Blue to make them paler and knocked back.

Cream
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.

Duck Egg Blue
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.

Emile
A warm soft aubergine colour 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.

Emperor’s Silk
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 color maybe deepened with some dark wax in places.

English Yellow - (New Color)
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.

Florence – (New Color)
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 color found in classical Italian furniture.

French Linen
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 colors such as Emile and Emperor’s Silk.

Graphite
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.

Greek Blue
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.

Henrietta
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’.

Louis Blue
A pretty pastel blue works particularly well when waxed with a dark brown.

Old Ochre
A soft warm neutral that can be dark waxed to make the color of old French painted woodwork.

Old Violet
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.

Old White
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 adding it to the other colors to make them the exact tone for your room.

Olive
Deep green with a yellowish tinge.

Original
A warm and creamy soft white, similar to a “winter white.” (Note: This color is currently not available for sale in the US; however, you can easily create it by adding equal parts of Pure & Old White to make “Original.”

Paloma
This is a beautiful sophisticated warm grey taupe with a great deal of depth, made by mixing two complementary colors, purple and yellow with white.

Paris Grey
This is a soft and slightly bluish grey, and is the color 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 favorites 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.

Primer Red
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
Blue green shutters in the South of France are the inspiration for this color. Set against walls of any of the whites. Provence needs light and bright fabrics with a Mediterranean and seaside feel. Other paint colors 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.

Pure
Quite simply a pure clean white.

Scandinavian Pink
One of the traditional colors found in much Swedish furniture we use it underneath and as a color for interiors of cupboards and drawers.
Find it used in combination in the Traditional Swedish Palette

Versailles
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.
