Annie Sloan Firle
Firle is one of three exclusive colours Annie has created as a part of the Annie Sloan with Charleston collaboration. Firle is a fresh, zesty and crisp green which echoes the gorgeous distemper of the wall surrounding the mantelpiece in Clive Bell’s study.
1 litre is enough to cover approximately 13 square metres (1 quart covers approximately 150 square feet). After painting, seal indoor furniture with Annie Sloan Wax. On floors, seal with Annie Sloan Floor Lacquer.
Annie Sloan with Charleston
Annie discovered the Bloomsbury group of artists and their country retreat, Charleston farmhouse, whilst she was studying Fine Art. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with the Charleston Trust to create a unique range of Chalk Paint™ colours, was a dream come true for Annie.
What is Charleston?
Charleston is an English farmhouse nestled deep in the Sussex countryside. In 1916 Charleston became the home of Bloomsbury group artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; two of the most radical and influential British artists of the twentieth century. The house had an open-door policy and frequently hosted fellow intellectuals including Virginia Woolf, E.M Forster and Roger Fry. Over the next 50 years they transformed Charleston, from an unremarkable seventeenth century farmhouse, into a decorative masterpiece - bringing the experimental language of modernism into their home.
The Bloomsbury group included some of the twentieth century’s most pioneering artists, writers and thinkers – people who believed in debate, creativity, beauty, innovation and truth and whose work was guided by a sense of fun, freedom and irreverence. Annie has channelled this inspiration into each of the colours and products she has designed for this collaboration.
Annie's collaboration with Charleston has seen her create three distinctive Chalk Paint™ colours inspired by the incredible home of the Bloomsbury group. Each of the colours are named after local places which the artists would have known, and are inspired by elements of the highly decorated rooms within the British farmhouse.
