Painter in Residence Janice Issitt turned this previously underused summerhouse into a serene and sun-drenched yoga room using Chalk Paint®.
Janice painted the walls in Paloma – a contemporary neutral which has a pink/purple tone to it. This creates the perfect neutral backdrop to the bright pops of colour Janice introduced throughout the space.
Using a mix of Chalk Paint® in Emperor’s Silk and Henrietta, Janice created a mandala shape on the wall using Annie’s Petrushka Stencil design.
She painted a little cabinet in Antibes Green, picking out details on the front and back with Craqueleur varnish and Brass Leaf. She used both Clear and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax to finish the cabinet – deepening the green and giving the piece an aged look.
She has also dyed lace curtains with the same colour mix as the mandala shape, which you can see here.
