This year we want to encourage all of our customers to mix and explore colour with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan. Start off by mixing two colours together and discover how easy it is to create a bespoke colour for your home that you have created yourself. Mixed Chalk paint™ colours are beautiful (and mixing is addictive!) the colours come out clean and clear with a beautiful tone. They don’t go muddy or brown and it’s like watching magic appear before your eyes. Not to mention it’s a great way to use up existing colours. The saying here at TR is that no Chalk Paint™ should ever go to waste. If you have a dark blue left, mix it with a lighter colour and discover a range of soft blues. Mix various quantities of Florence and Burgandy together and you have yourself a stunning selection of purples. Once you have mixed a few colours, get adventurous and start mixing of 3 or 4 colours together to create something truly special.
It’s our first day back this year and to start the year off we are sharing a stunning sea green recipe reminiscent of the cool jewelled tones of the NZ sea, ocean and deep lakes on a hot summers day. This colour was created by mixing Amsterdam Green and Giverny, vary the quantities of each colour depending on whether you like it “greener” or “bluer” add a white to the mix to create lighter, softer shades. We especially love this colour when finished with black wax creating a deep rich tone of sea green. A great colour for that statement piece and pairs beautifully with brass and gold.
