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.
