Grey working really well with accents of brass, monochrome and wood.


We love this textural Scandi-inspired living room using paint colour Shirting

Love this bedroom in Basalt with soft pink accents

2 Annie Sloan Chalk Paints


Love this kitchen by Paul Massey using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. It’s all about the texture and industrial touches.


We love this Swedish inspired linen press. Annie used Chalk Paint® thickly and applied heat to create a rustic crackled effect.

For the freehand lines, Annie used Chalk Paint® in Aubusson Blue, but you could use any colour from the Chalk Paint® range to tailor fit your room.

For step-by-step instructions, you can watch Annie’s accompanying tutorial on YouTube below

3 Lakeland Paints

manufacture the only complete range of Solvent-free paints. The range is

water based  and free from all Solvents, VOCs, pesticides, herbicides and toxins and an amazing 7000 times purer than standard low odour paints so it’s no surprise that Lakeland Paints are the paint of choice for the Allergy UK offices.

When I was pregnant I didn’t want fumes filling our home so we used Lakeland Paints and I was thrilled with how the paints looked – they had amazing depth of colour – and we had absolutely no fumes whatsoever. We love their Super Chalky Matt paint as used by Joe Lee of Swedish Interior Design (below)
