The Colourist Bookazine Issue 4 by Annie Sloan front cover

"To launch a magazine full of colour-filled inspiration has always been a dream of mine!"

-Annie Sloan

The Colourist is a bi-annual Bookazine (bigger than a magazine, smaller than a book) publication, first launched on August 1st 2018. Each collectable issue comprises of 132 carefully curated pages bound in a covetable cover.

Inside, you’ll find interviews with creatives Annie admires; discover beautiful furniture Annie loves; sneak peeks inside homes that inspire Annie; and travel to off-the-beaten-track destinations Annie has explored. All from the comfort of your home! The fun doesn’t finish once you’ve read the issue, either. Each edition also features a range of Chalk Paint® projects (suitable for all abilities, from absolute amateurs to Chalk Paint® connoisseurs) with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Once you’ve closed the pages and with a new creative confidence you’ll definitely want to follow one of these how-to’s and bring some more colour and joy into your home!

Issue 4 includes a free Toile du Jouy-inspired decoupage paper pull-out. The Toile features scenes from Annie's home city and the manufacture home of Chalk Paint®; Oxford (where Chalk Paint® is still made today!). It’s completely exclusive to The Colourist, and inside you’ll also find a step-by-step example of how to use it by Annie Sloan Interiors’ very own senior designer Joanna Lloyd, which you can see here
