If you have been to the shop lately, you’ve probably noticed that a popular trend this summer is green furniture!  To get this look on your own, check out these tips from Annie Sloan, and check out her website for more info:

Keeping it simple can sometimes make the biggest impact, just like this vintage record cabinet by Green Spruce Designs.


Jen used Amsterdam Green and paired it with Black Chalk Paint Wax to create a textured, painterly look.
Beautiful, elegant, and yet totally modern, this is such a gorgeous combination of both paint and wax.

Follow and join in with the hashtag #MixItMonday on Instagram and Facebook.
Brought to you most Mondays, I share the shades that you’ve been creating with my paint!

This gorgeous photo is by the amazingly creative team over at Annie Sloan South Africa. They used Amsterdam Green mixed with a little Louis Blue to reach this stunningly rich forest green.


I love how they’ve captured the depth of their colour mix by painting it on all sorts of objects!

Another fabulous mix that uses Amsterdam Green is this fresh colour by Instagrammer Amanda Rydell.

She whitened the green to get a slightly minty shade and it looks so lovely with all of her pretty plants!
Those clear knobs keep it modern and a coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax protects the paint from any dirt or water.

Beautiful botanical style has reached The Annie Sloan Shop! 

I am in love with this window created by the fabulous team that run my shop, mother and daughter duo Bee and Lucy.
That pairing of Amsterdam Green, Antibes Green and the outside of English Yellow just fills me with joy!
If you’re in the Oxford area do pop in as we’re selling all sorts of wonderful plants and succulents now too!
To make a similar colour like the one Amanda made above try mixing Amsterdam Green with Pure. The brightness of Pure will create a clean minty green, adding a Mid Century Modern style to your furniture. 
Pretty in pink, the combination of Antoinetteand Amsterdam Green is a total scene stealer! I love them together, it’s completely modern and yet classic at the same time. Perfect!
