Vintage Floral Bedroom
by Janice Issitt
After treating herself to this vibrant floral bed linen, Painter in Residence Janice Issitt decided to create a Chalk Paint® colour scheme to complement her new bedding.
The striking cupboard that sits next to her bed has been painted in a number of colours from the Chalk Paint® palette. The hot pink/red colour is a mix of Emperor’s Silk and Henrietta. She used Country Grey and Old White to provide a neutral background to frame the rest of the cupboard.
Janice cut her own stencils to give the cupboard character and a vintage feel. She painted the stencils in Aubusson Blue, Antibes Green, Florence and Greek Blue, picking out colours on her bedspread. She then finished the cupboard with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
Janice also painted the mirror that sits on top of the cupboard in Paloma, a contemporary neutral with a purple tone. She used a combination of Clear and Dark Wax to give it an aged appearance – the perfect complement to the vintage floral style of the room.
