Alex Russell Flint’s Rustic Hallway
Painter in Residence Alex Russell Flint painted the floor in his entrance hall using Chalk Paint to create a cool black and white tile effect.
Alex scored diamond shapes on to the concrete floor and painted them in Chalk Paint in Graphite and Original to make them look like black and white tiles. He finished the floor with Matt Chalk Paint Lacquer for a hardwearing protection. Original is a warm off-white which works beautifully with the purple tones in Old Violet – the colour that Alex has diluted and used on the lime plaster wall.
He painted the shoe rack in Old White, an off-white with a cooler tone, and finished with a coat of Clear Wax to protect the surface.
