Who is Annie Sloan?

More than 30 years ago, Annie Sloan created her revolutionary Chalk Paint, which has been made on-site in the company’s factory in Oxford since 2014.

Today, Annie is a worldwide name in the world of colour and her Chalk Paint works well in period homes as its formula is water-based, non-toxic and non-plastic, making it kind on older walls.

The colours are also inspired by historic interior design – some even taken directly from details and rooms of famous period properties.

Are Annie Sloan paints eco-friendly?

At its core, the business is about upcycling – reducing what we buy and reusing what we have. The paints are stocked exclusively through small, independent stockists rather than big corporations.

At the Annie Sloan HQ in Oxford, a resident eco-star is constantly looking at ways to make the offices greener, from growing their own veg to using environmentally kind
loo roll.

Ultimately, the company is committed to making lots of small changes to keep its processes and products as green as possible.

What are the best Annie Sloan paint colours?

Speaking of green, this is the shade that Annie is touting for the forthcoming season. An earthy green like Olive can be used as a neutral, perhaps contrasted with a soft pink to create a soothing space. Or for bright, joyful colour, Capri Pink can be splashed around liberally – a life-affirming antidote to winter weather.
