Janice Issitt's Summerhouse

Painter in Residence, Janice Issitt turned this previously underused summerhouse into a serene and sun-drenched yoga room using my paint, 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.

She dyed the lace curtains with Chalk Paint®, using a mix of Emperor's Silk and Henrietta. She used this same colour mix to stencil the walls in a 'mandala' shape.

She painted a little cabinet in Antibes Green, picking out details with brass leaf. She used both my Clear and Dark Soft Wax to finish the cabinet – deepening the green and giving the piece an aged look. The use of my Soft Wax also protects the surface.

I just love the look of the lace curtains she dyed in Chalk Paint®. Have you ever tried dying fabric with my paint?

Yours, Annie
