French bedroom

by Annie Sloan

Everything in this bedroom from Annie’s house in Normandy has been given the Chalk Paint® treatment. The walls, the bed, the floors – even the curtains!

Annie painted everything in this elegant bedroom at her country home in France. The bed was painted using a traditional wax resist technique – see more here. The Toile de Jouy Rococo chair and the reclaimed door mirror have been gilded using Gold Size and Brass Leaf for a coherent vintage look, showcasing their ornate carvings.

The floors and walls are painted in a wash of Old White and the bedside tables were painted very thickly to give them a rustic, chippy finish. The curtains are made from old French linens which are dyed in Chalk Paint® in Aubusson Blue.

Every item shown is featured in Annie’s Book ‘Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture and More‘, where you will find step-by-step instructions which you can follow easily at home. Published by CICO. Photography by Christopher Drake.
