Annie Sloan’s Florence

I love a bright pop of color in any living space.  Sometimes it can be something as small as a throw pillow that adds that unique brightness to a room.  Other times it’s a bold wall color that can really make a statement in a home.  Many times, however, your statement color can originate from a piece of furniture.

I have been painting with Annie Sloan‘s chalk paint for almost a year now, which I know is hardly enough time to consider myself knowledgeable in this area.  I really have only just begun to experiment with her colors and products.  In fact, the majority of pieces I have refinished with her chalk paint have been in ‘safe’ or more neutral colors.  I always look first at graphite, napoleonic blue, paris grey and pure white – mainly because that’s the color palette I’m used to using – and also because they’re as I stated earlier ‘safe’.

Yet as I would revisit my favorite paint shop and buy another can of one of my ‘safe’ colors, I was dying to try something a little bolder and brighter.  As you can see from her color chart, there are so many amazing colors!  It was so hard to decide which ‘dangerous’ color to choose, but I finally decided on Florence.  I loved the look of this teal, blue green paint and couldn’t wait to try it out.  Right now at our shop we have two pieces available in this color.  They would both look amazing in any bedroom and although they are not matching pieces would coordinate nicely in the same space.

It was so exciting to add a pop of color to our shop and try out something new from this line of impressive chalk paint.  I love how this color just transformed these pieces and could see them adding some brightness to any bedroom space.

This color is so popular these days.  I found other pieces beautifully refinished in Florence that I have to share here as well.  Here are some beautiful inspiration pieces I found online using Annie Sloan’s Florence.

This color can look bright and bold and can also appear aged or distressed depending on the techniques and finishing products used.  I love the gold accents on the top dresser with mirror.  What an elegant, bright piece of furniture!


Before you choose another ‘safe’ color from Annie Sloan consider adding a bright color to your home with this gorgeous shade of blue and green.  Visit our shop to see more photos of our available florence pieces today!
