Antoinette and Aubergine Colour-Mix Kitchen
Annie created an aubergine colour by mixing Chalk Paint® in Aubusson Blue and Emperor’s Silk for this modern kitchen.
Annie painted this kitchen in an unusual colour palette of soft pink and deep aubergine. The finished effect is soft, pretty, and modern. The walls are painted with Wall Paint in Antoinette. Although Chalk Paint® can be used on walls, Annie’s Wall Paint is more durable and hard wearing and therefore better suited to a kitchen environment than Chalk Paint®. Wall Paint can be wiped down and kept clean with warm soapy water.
Where Chalk Paint® is used in the kitchen – on cupboards, shelving and tables – just be sure to apply Chalk Paint® Wax or Lacquer and allow to cure completely! Read Avery Michaels fantastic blog about how well her Chalk Paint® kitchen has held up, two years after she painted and waxed, if you are concerned about the longevity of Chalk Paint® in your kitchen.
To create this bespoke aubergine shade, Annie mixed Chalk Paint® in Emperor’s Silk with Aubusson Blue. All the colours in the Chalk Paint® palette have been designed to mix beautifully to allow you to create an infinite spectrum of bespoke shades.
The table has a wash of Old White with mis-matched chairs painted in Scandinavian Pink and Paloma. The shelves in the corner have a graduated colour effect, starting with Old White, followed by Antoinette, ending with Scandinavian Pink. For a modern flourish of metallic the wall brackets have been gilded with Brass Loose Leaf over Primer Red.
